ALEX ARIZA JOINS TEAM GARCIA IN OXNARD
By Ed de la Vega, DDS

Robert Garcia Jr announced on Twitter today that a new team member has been added to his Team -- Alex Ariza, the conditioning coach of Manny Pacquiao, has joined the Garcia Team.
The addition of Ariza to the Oxnard gym of Garcia would only do one thing:- add additional strength to an already very strong team.
Ariza is multi-talented. He is well experienced as well having been a strength and conditioning coach with a 20 year experience. He is not only a conditioning coach, many times he also acts as a cutman, even for large title fights. One would often see him in the corner of Manny Pacquiao together with Freddie Roach and Buboy Fernandez.
With Ariza joining Team Garcia a possible problem just popped out.
If Manny Pacquiao wins on December 8th, which many have expected, who will Ariza chose if all of a sudden Brandon Rios comes into the picture and becomes an opponent for Pacquiao in 2013?
Will Ariza stick to his long time team at the Wildcard Gym of Freddie Roach or will he show his allegiance to his new team from Oxnard, CA - Team Garcia?
Your guess is as good as mine.
