No Showdown? Floyd Mayweather's Strength & Conditioning Coach Says Fight With Manny Pacquiao Won't Happen Because Of Bob Arum! (Floyd Co-Signs Via Twitter)
Floyd Mayweather's strength and conditioning coach Alex Ariza did an interview with Fight Hype and said that, while Mayweather will be fighting on May 2, the fight won't be against Manny Pacquiao. He also said that Pacquiao's manager Bob Arum is the reason Mayweather/Pacquiao isn't going to happen. "We're fighting May 2," he said, "but it's not going to be Manny Pacquiao. As soon as we get rid of him [Arum], we can get it on." Ariza obviously doesn't have the final say when it comes to who Mayweather does and doesn't fight, but his comments are interesting because Mayweather took to Twitter last night to co-sign everything that Ariza said!
