Alex Ariza Rips Roger Mayweather: "It's a Tricky Issue If You Never Completed High School"

Conditioning coach Alex Ariza, who notably works alongside trainer Freddie Roach with Manny Pacquiao, Amir Khan, and Julio Cesar Chavez Jr, has absolutely slammed Roger Mayweather after Mayweather accused Khan and Pacquiao of using steroids yesterday.

Ariza had this to say when speaking with Rick Reeno of BoxingScene.com:

"The guy is a failure as a trainer. The only fighter that he has is Floyd. Every fighter that we have is winning. [Julio Cesar] Chavez is now with us and he's winning. Amir is winning. Manny is blowing through everyone. The only person that he has is Floyd, so he's not really a trainer."

... "If he only knew the difference between vitamins and steroids. It's a tricky issue if you never completed high school. Nouns, verbs....all of those things can be confusing for someone who never finished high school and that's by his own admission."

Ariza and Roger do have one thing in common, which is an outspoken nature that has at many times turned off boxing fans. And usually I would say that Ariza should leave the personal stuff out of it, but, well, Roger has sort of asked for this, hasn't he? Roger's repeated accusations have seen him sued (the defamation case is ongoing), and he just never seems to learn that he probably shouldn't say this stuff. So if he's going to continue to make the accusations, he has to expect to be ripped in return, and Ariza has answered the call. He's defending his fighters, and himself.
