Alex Ariza, was brought in to prepare Manny Pacquiao during the training camp of Pacquiao vs Marquez 2, Pacquiao looked really bad in that fight because he was having trouble making weight. Since that fight Pacquiao has moved up in weight and looked almost super human in this fights. Ariza has been banking of the success of Pacquiao that he has a stable of fighters now in which he works with, Amir Khan being the next best thing to come for Ariza.
Then comes Pacquiao vs Mosley, where Pacquiao seemed almost normal and his balance seemed off as he struggled to make any type of contact to Shane Mosley. He could not cut off the ring, he was lunging and looked pretty bad. Mosley decision to run and stay away, took most of the nights attention but ringsiders knew something was not right about Manny. Pacquiao would go on to say that he had leg cramps and could not move. Then this pass saturday night, Pacquiao complains about cramps again, this time it's a foot cramp.
I'm not a sports medicine guru, or anything like that, but I'm sure cramps are caused by dehydration. Why is Manny Pacquiao coming into a championship fight cramping like that. That is your job to make sure Pacquiao is able to physically perform on fight night and if he is not able to due to events not cause by boxing, then you Alex Ariza have failed Manny Pacquiao.
