Fortune Says Mayweather Camp is Infected With Cancer

By Steve Kim

One of the bigger storylines regarding the May 2nd showdown between Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather is the presence of Alex Ariza, the former strength and conditioning coach of Pacquiao. Both Ariza and (strength and conditioning coach) Angel 'Memo' Heredia have been hanging around the Mayweather camp.

While Heredia has gone on record that he is not working with Mayweather, Ariza is officially on board and helping prepare Mayweather for the upcoming fight. Some have wondered if this is just merely a mind game being played by Mayweather.

If it is, it hasn't impressed Justine Fortune, who returned to his duties handling Pacquiao's physical conditioning last year.

He said from Drake Stadium at UCLA on Friday morning, where Pacquiao, had a brisk workout:

"Well, Ariza as a mind game - it's a pretty bad mind game. It means you need to go back to f***ing school. Memo, I don't know, I know his reputation. I know he's a pretty smart guy. But I can't comment, I don't know him. Ariza, I do [know him].....you take one cancer out of a camp and get him into your own camp - pretty stupid."

Ariza worked with Pacquiao from 2009 to 2012 before having a well-publicized falling out with Roach.

"He got fired from Freddie, fired from (Robert) Garcia. I mean, you put him into your camp and that's your mind game? Good move," Fortune said with sarcasm.

[QUOTE=IMDAZED;15511323]Possibly. Floyd needs to take the test.[/QUOTE] Just one word ..... Memo! Makes no difference when Ariza is "consulting" with Memo about Floyd. Memo has admitted to being able to make designer PEDs that are undetectable.

That was Pac's mom that put the cancer on em' (if they really got it) with that scary voodoo-catholic-chicken-bone-breaking-santa-muerte-gangsta' ****. Floyd should negotiate for her to be locked up somewhere during the camp and the fight. She's gonna' put the…
