Pacquiao vs Rios: Freddie Roach, Alex Ariza, and Robert Garcia involved in brawl in Macao

Top Rank

According to reports from Macao, the camps of Manny Pacquiao and Brandon Rios got into a physical altercation that involved Freddie Roach, Alex Ariza, and Robert Garcia.

Manny Pacquiao's trainer Freddie Roach, Brandon Rios' trainer Robert Garcia, and former Pacquiao and current Rios strength and conditioning coach Alex Ariza were reportedly involved in a physical scuffle tonight in Macao.

Details are a little iffy right now, but Abac Cordero of the Philippine Star had a bunch of updates on Twitter. Here are a few of them:

So, in short, Team Rios was reportedly still using the gym that both fighters are working out in, they were a few minutes over (Lee Samuels of Top Rank says six or seven minutes), and Roach was demanding they get out. Rios was reportedly on the treadmill at the time, while Pacquiao had not yet arrived. The Rios team stood their ground, then things got physical, with Ariza reportedly kicking Roach (according to Ariza himself).

Fun!
