Photo: Rios, Ariza, Garcia Are Coming For Pacquiao

Junior welterweight contender Brandon Rios is feeling better than ever since hook up with strength and conditioning coach Alex Ariza, who a few weeks ago was fired by Manny Pacquiao and his trainer Freddie Roach. Rios' trainer, Robert Garcia, added Ariza to their team, with Rios moving up to 147-pounds to face Pacquiao on November 23rd in Macau, China. Ariza and Roach have had a rocky relationship for years, but now they are going to collide in opposite corners. Ariza is confident Rios will be able to pull off the biggest win of his career by beating Pacquiao. Garcia is very pleased with the conidtioning work that Ariza is doing with Rios and unbeaten super featherweight Mikey Garcia.  Photo b Chris Robinson/BoxingScene/Hustleboss
