Team Pacquiao Cracks? Ariza Rips Arum, Koncz Over Floyd

by Pawel Pronishev

Alex Ariza, the strength and conditioning coach of WBO welterweight champion Manny Pacquiao, blames Top Rank's CEO Bob Arum, who promotes Pacquiao, and Michael Koncz, the agent of Pacquiao, as standing in way of a possible super-fight with Floyd Mayweather Jr., already scheduled to return on May 5th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. During an explosive interview with Fighthype.com, Ariza erupted when approached about the subject of Koncz and Arum, claiming the two of them are going to do everything possible to prevent the mega-match from taking place. Ariza made several allegations against Arum and Koncz, including one claim that Koncz is preventing any outside parties from reviewing Pacquiao's financial records.

Ariza said - "I know that Michael Koncz says that he's having a meeting with Bob to negotiate the Mayweather fight. They're having a meeting on how to make sure that this fight doesn't happen. That's what their meeting is about. Michael Koncz is Bob Arum's b*tch boy. He's not fooling anybody. Don't you think it was odd that there was such a push to get this accounting company [VisionQwest] out? Why is that?"

"Why is it that anytime somebody wants to dig around and wants to sit there and look and see what's going on with Manny, making sure that the best interest is at hand, why is it that there's a full court press to get those people out of there? Why is that? That's what's going on. I mean, what is it? If you got nothing to hide, why is it such a push to get these people away? Why is Michael Koncz always trying to f**king make sure everything goes through him? If there's any problems with these accounting companies, why is it that he's always trying to stop that? Maybe the findings are going to come out. Checks being written to Michael Koncz from Top Rank, what's that all about? That sounds like the biggest conflict of interest that I've ever seen. I thought Michael Koncz was working for Manny in Manny's best interest. Why is he getting checks from f**king Top Rank"
