Alex Ariza Presses on Bob Arum To Give Back To Philippine Boxing

By Ronnie Nathanielsz

Strength and conditioning guru, Alex Ariza who steered eight division world champion Manny Pacquiao through his amazing run against top class fighters, has take aim at Top Rank CEO Bob Arum.

According to Ariza, Arum made a lot of money off of Pacquiao and hasn’t given anything back to Philippine boxing.

In a wide-ranging interview on Viva Sports weekly boxing show “The Main Event” on Pinoy Box Office (PBO) over Sky Cable last weekend, Ariza said “I’ve been to a lot of gyms here and I see such tremendous's so sad that after all the money made off Pacquiao they can’t give a little back .”

Ariza said he felt the need “for something structured, something organized and they (Filipino fighters) can make the transition and be seen over in the United States.”

He said  “there is a wealth of raw talent waiting for somebody to give direction.”

Ariza believes that Filipino fighters need to be given “the exposure that Floyd Mayweather Jr gives his fighters in the US.”

The strength and conditioning coach said he didn’t have the resources to pay for such a program but committed “I will definitely give my time and whatever expertise  and advice absolutely free.”

There are so many talent fighters in the Philippines. There are so many talented people in the Philippines, opportunities are not matching the talented people. This is why many talented Filipinos are working overseas.
