Why does Manny employ Alex Ariza?
We all know Manny lost interest in following Ariza's strength and conditioning program, at least fully and properly, a few fights ago; he's admitted it himself, and before his last fight - or was it before JM3? - he talked about needing to go back to the plyometrics and intense strength work with Ariza that he attributed much of his success to in recent years. I just checked out Ariza's twitter and saw this:
HorheDyordz: Brother, is Manny Pacquiao submitting to your strength & conditioning regimen? (Ariza's reply) Not so much...
So if Manny isn't really following Ariza's regimen.... why the hell is he even employing him? Can we really expect a better Manny if he isn't following his strength and conditioning guy's program? I know Ariza has his detractors, but he's excellent at what he does and I think for Manny to have any chance of putting this one beyond doubt, he needs to train harder than he ever has.
