Camps Of Pacquiao And Rios Have An Altercation In MacauThe camps of Manny Pacquiao and Brandon Rios are both in Macau right now in preparation for their fight on Sunday. But it seems there is a fight card the people don't know about--the one between Coach Freddie Roach and Coach Robert Garcia.
Reports said Freddie arrived at exactly 11am on Wednesday at the gym in Venetian Macau to prepare it for Pacquiao's arrival. They were scheduled for training then. However, Rios and his team are just starting to round up their own training. They were scheduled from 9am to 11am.
Apparently, Robert asked Freddie to give them a couple of minutes to fix their things and leave the gym. Freddie wouldn't have none of that.
By that time, they were already attracting enough attention from those inside the gym. The people surrounded them. Alex Ariza, Pacquiao's former conditioning coach who had a falling out with Freddie earlier this year, was also there.
When Freddie apparently threatened Robert, Alex kicked him in the chest. That's when the fight started. Robert further ignited Freddie's ire by threatening to punch him.
Luckily, the people in the gym were able to stop both camps from being in a full-pledge fistfight. A little while later, Manny arrived.
When asked about the altercation, the boxing champion just quoted a Bible passage. Brandon also doesn't seem to care that his coach got into a small fight with Freddie.
The important thing for them is to try their best to beat one another on Sunday.
