Bad blood between Manny Pacquiao’s trainer Freddie Roach and Brandon Rios’ trainer Robert Garcia erupted at ringside at the Venetian Theater in Macau, reports ESPN.
The two camps are sharing training facilities and trouble started when the Rios camp stayed over their allotted time to conduct an interview with ESPN’s Sportscenter. Roach was said to have asked Garcia to leave. He reportedly called Garcia a piece of Sh**. That’s when Rios strength and conditioning coach Alex Ariza got involved.
Words were exchanged and ESPN reports Ariza kicked Roach in the stomach. Witnesses say Roach called Ariza a Mexican m***** F***** and an all out brawl ensued.
