Ariza Says Argument With Pacquiao Was 'No Big Deal'

By Ronnie Nathanielsz

Strength and conditioning coach Alex Ariza clarified that his reported difference with pound for pound king Manny Pacquiao, in which Manny is supposed to have thrown his cellphone and broken a glass, was “no big deal.”

Ariza told the Manila Standard “Manny and I sometimes are like married couples. We argue. That’s all it was.”

The strength and conditioning guru noted that with his trilogy with Juan Manuel Marquez set for the MGM Grand Garden Arena on Saturday night, “it’s very tense personally for him and yes it happened but we are fine.”

Ariza was present at the official weigh-in and reports from the venue said they were fine.

Ariza said Pacquiao “looks great and is doing  great” but wondered why media is making “such a big deal of how good he looks” adding Marquez “looks good for an old man.” He is 38.

Pacquiao tipped the scales at 143 pounds while Marquez came in at 142.

Ariza earlier predicted that Marquez would probably go for a knockout in the first three or four rounds but once Manny catches him with one shot it would be the end of the fight and the end of Marquez’s career.

Problem with some of these guys in Pac's team is they mislead themselves into thinking [I]they[/I] are Manny Pacquiao, [I]they[/I] do the fighting and are winning the bouts. Reality is, they're just a bunch of replaceable yes-men who have let…
