Ariza: Forget Mosley, He's a Quitter, Marquez Has Balls

By Mark Vester

Strength and conditioning coach Alex Ariza doesn't see any reason for Manny Pacquiao to fight Shane Mosley next. Ariza is a core member of Pacquiao's team. He views Mosley as a quitter who mentally gave up in his May fight with Floyd Mayweather Jr. After coming close to knocking Mayweather out in the second round, Mosley was dominated in every following round to lose a lopsided twelve round decision in Las Vegas. 

Ariza, like Pacquiao's trainer Freddie Roach, wants the Filipino champion to face Juan Manuel Marquez in a third meeting and he doesn't care about the catch-weight. He views Marquez as a fighter with guts. In the matter of Mosley, he says the fight is so easy that Pacquiao won't even have to train hard.

“Everybody knows I like Marquez. It doesn’t matter, 140, 144, 145, whatever they want to fight us. Mosley? He’ll be tired after 15 minutes so what’s the point of that fight? Manny knocks him out and probably, Manny won’t even train for that fight. That guy is a quitter. He quit against Mayweather in three rounds," said Ariza to The Philippine Star.

"What do you think [Mosley is] gonna do when Manny starts let loose his hands five or 15 seconds after the bell rings?” . “[I like Marquez] because he’s got balls. He’s got heart. And he’s stupid enough to think he can beat Manny. So that’s a great fight.”

You know, I thought he was being a b1tch when he said Mosley's a quitter. This is some true sh1t right here. Watch someone correct me once Marquez starts backpedalling against manny. Doubt it though.

Ariza once again saying what the fans are saying.

I could have sworn that after the 2nd Marquez fight, Pacquiao said that his business with JMM is finished. The way Bob Arum, Freddie Roach and Manny Pacquiao is setting up these ready made fights. I'm not too sure that…
