Ariza Only Training Garcia, No Other Oxnard Fighters

by Ronnie Nathanielsz

Manny Pacquiao’s strength and conditioning guru Alex Ariza has made it clear he has only agreed to serve as the strength and conditioning coach for undefeated Mikey Garcia, younger brother of trainer Robert Garcia and no other fighter.

Ariza told BoxingScene.com/Manila Standard that he “didn’t move to Robert Garcia and I will continue to train Pacquiao. Right now my focus after Manny will just solely be on Mikey.”

Ariza said he had met with Mikey Garcia and his father “with Manny’s blessings of course. In fact I told Manny first and he said he was happy and said I’m glad for you both. You know they got you because you’re good.”

He said “I’m excited because its been a long time since I felt like this.”

Ariza said Pacquiao spent Sunday attending Church services and relaxing in his Palazzo apartment.

The strength and conditioning coach also told us he had “big expectations for Michael Farenas and I hope everything works out for the fight against undefeated Cuban featherweight Yuriorkis Gamboa” when they clash on the undercard of Pacquiao vs Juan Manuel Marquez IV at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on December 8.

Farenas, a hard-hitting southpaw is a protégé of former two division world champion Gerry Penalosa and according to Penalosa has been training hard and is in good shape.
