Ariza reminds me of those guys who would throw a towel on there shoulder at the gym and would think that made them a trainer

PEDcquiao who?

Ariza has always had a lot of respect for Garcia so it wouldn’t surprise me if true.

Ariza could certainly help get the Garcia crew in better shape and help them make weight healthier.

The one big complaint you tend to hear is that Ariza wants to do too much. But I take that as Alex worrying about the athletes he trains he wants to be hands on at all times.
But this is also the guy that will back off and find “experts” to figure out a cure for any problems his athlete has that he doesn’t specialize in. He knows nutrition and yet he’ll have Teri Tom as the expert. He knows the body mechanics and yet he has hired an expert in that specific field to help him out.

he might be a bit arrogant though.

I don’t know him though.

Justin Fortune seems to have a real issue with him. I’m not sure Fortune has a degree like Ariza does but a lot of that stuff can be learned through books and paying experts to teach you. Fortune leads me to think he is up to date on all things training. Plus, he is a former fighter so there is respect given there.

Also, remember, Justine Fortune was the first to really get Pac in top Elite Condition. Even Roach said Fortune changed Pac’s ability to absorb body shots. Just look at the big name fighters Fortune trained Pac for and you’ll a job was well done. Especialy since Pac wasn’t as skilled back then as he later became to some degree.

Ariza is a businessman. He said this a long time ago. He is Paid to train athletes. Just like he could get fired and lose money he is allowed to be hired by someone to make money.

Who betrayed who? Pac for not sticking up for Alex when Roach Fired him or Ariza picking up a job afterwards. A Job that will pay your bills since you are no longer employed.

The Mad Scientist

Alex Ariza as Brandon’s strength and conditioning coach, dang! I didn’t see that one coming..I can’t wait to see what Rios looks like at 147lbs working with Ariza..I thought Brandon still looked a little drained at 140lbs.

freddy roach is the douche and was lucky to be eddie futch’s ‘lil bucket boy.he was blessed when ‘lil manny came in and made him the arrogant rich t-wat that he is. to fire the man who made manny the destroyer was lame,and i can only hope that he is working with rios who killed himself at 135 and 140.rios is going to shock a lot of people.3 months ago,everybody was talking retirement for the knocked dead pacquiao,now everyone is on his jock again.typical.i can hear the roids conspiracy now.

Manny by KO, Rios is getting his behind handed over to him.

that’s better . . . and human.

Te Tumbo, yes I agree that the Betrayal post mentioning Jesus and Judas was a bit much. My sincere apology is given to my Lord and Savior. Ariza is a hypocrite devil though.

Posted September 11, 2013 2:03 am 


I love reading Te Tumbo’s posts about Manny. He’s always beside himself. I’m sure he stays up nights thinking about Pacquiao.

te tumbo, we’ll see what happens. Hey did I miss something? I thought pactards like Ariza. Lol

Just wait tell all is said and done, If Ariza ever finds it hard to find work he’s gonna write a tell all book. Then you’ll see the betrayal.

Unless Ariza can get Rios to be able to where head gear in this fight, he probably won’t matter much.

“Manny Pacquiao is betrayed as Judas betrayed Jesus”(?!?). really?!? You Need To Get A F’n Grip. in fact, what would be St. Pacquiao’s* response to your sacrilegious post?

Sweet, sounds like Rios will be getting those special shakes. He’ll probably be ripped for the fight.

You cant win a fight if your being outlanded 3 hard punches to 1…

Posted September 10, 2013 6:22 pm 


It might help, but I always thought it was the speed and skill department where Rios just fell short against top level guys. In saying that if Manny’s heart is not in it 100% Rios will win Ariza or no Ariza, I just dont see it happening though.

Pacman is the greatest fighter EVER born!!!!!!!

“A good diet, training and exercise will help anyone, though not necessarily with strength but with stamina. Ariza is a strength coach and that’s why fighters who train with him look and are strong. It’s very simple to understand. Not everyone who excels uses PEDS.” – I’d give Ariza the benefit of the doubt before Heredia or Conte, two other guys who’ve been working with boxers that are admitted PED distributors.

gonzo` there’s no way rios beats pac eventhough the confidence that has been lost from the knockout by juanma to the champ .This was a sure ARUM set up match to make pac look good to deceive those in thinking the pacmans back…yuuup!

Posted September 10, 2013 2:31 pm 


Rios will knock out Manny in devastating fashion. People forget that he’s a quality fighter, one dimensional but still world class. Manny unfortunately your time is over. Hope you get out of the ring safely, coz the medics are gonna have a busy nice resuscitating YOU.

Why is it that whenever someone is on a winning streak they’re accused of using PEDS? A good diet, training and exercise will help anyone, though not necessarily with strength but with stamina. Ariza is a strength coach and that’s why fighters who train with him look and are strong. It’s very simple to understand. Not everyone who excels uses PEDS.

Pac by K0.

Posted September 10, 2013 2:22 pm 


this is an easy make pac look good fight,rios was tailor made for this destruction…yezzzir!

Posted September 10, 2013 2:21 pm 


Still taking Rios by late round KO.

Truth Teller

Ariza is kind of douche, but Manny had his most successful years when Ariza was his strength and conditioning coach it seemed. Can’t blame Ariza for working with Rios or any fighter for that matter. That’s his job. There’s no loyalty with what he does, nor should there be.

I believe Pacquiao will beat Rios.

Well, Ariza said on Twitter the other day that he’d be willing to work with anyone who wanted him. I interpreted that as a cryptic hint of what’s up. If Pac isn’t paying him he can go with whomever pays.
