Hello New Zealand, BC Canada, Saudi Arabia, UK, Vancouver, Caloocan, Mizoram India, Toronto Canada, More shot outs to follow tomorrow!

Today we will be speaking on Insulin surges and how they affect your body.

I do want to mention that I will be dedicating my time when I get to LA to answer all these questions.

I apologize there are unanswered questions on the comments sections. I will get to everyone one of them. Things are always a bit more difficult when you are away from home and do not have the comforts you are used to.

I did see some great questions and look forward to our continued dialogs.

First thing I want to discuss is: What is Insulin? Continue reading “Ariza’s Corner Of The Ring” »

This Pacquiao-vs-mayweather-Manny Pacquiao to Fight Floyd Mayweather Jr.! (In Court)

4 Comments
News by Courthouse News
(1 Day Ago) in Sports / Boxing/MMA

Boxer Manny Pacquiao can go forward with a defamation suit against Floyd Mayweather Jr., Oscar De La Hoya and several promoters, a federal judge ruled, finding that the Filipino pugilist showed evidence that the group conceived a career-ending plot to spread rumors that Pacquiao uses performance-enhancing drugs.

U.S. District Judge Larry Hicks of Nevada declined to dismiss the lawsuit, as requested by De la Hoya, promoter Richard Schaefer and Mayweather Promotions.

“A reasonable listener would understand and interpret the moving defendants’ statements to imply that Pacquiao has used and is using [performance enhancing drugs] PEDs,” Hicks wrote in a March 21 order.

Team Pacman puts accent on endurance

BAGUIO CITY, Philippines – Manny Pacquiao, who’d gone 12 hard rounds in each of his last three fights, is making sure he’ll have enough steam against Shane Mosley.

As he trains up in Baguio for the May 7 fight at the fabled MGM Grand in Las Vegas, the 32-year-old Filipino superstar is putting premium on endurance.

“We’re trying to build up his endurance,” said Pacquiao’s conditioning coach Alex Ariza after yesterday’s morning workout at the Sta. Lucia Golf and Country Estate Continue reading “Team Pacman puts accent on endurance” »

On October 3rd, 1998, a 130 pound Floyd Mayweather, JR., stepped into the ring with the tough veteran and holder of the WBC Super Featherweight Title, Genaro Hernandez, 38-1-1, 17 KO’s. Hernandez’s only defeat on his record was to a prime Oscar De La Hoya, where he quit in the 6th round due to a severely broken nose. It was nothing to be ashamed of.

In sum and substance, lawyer Arum did not say all is forgiven. His message is really more of a “come home, Lassie, come home” type signal. Continue reading “No gloating by Bob Arum: I’ll promote Nonito Donaire, not punish him” »

Boxing Roundtable: What’s next for Gamboa? Will Kirkland be a star?

2 Comments

1. Yuriorkis Gamboa’s fourth-round knockout of Jorge Solis was easily his best win to date. Were you impressed with Gamboa?

CHRIS MANNIX: Impressed? How about wowed, dazzled and amazed, too? For weeks we heard about Solis’s experience, how he had once gone toe-to-toe with Manny Pacquiao and, for a while, held his own. Against Gamboa, Solis was a punching bag, and not a very sturdy one at that. Gamboa’s blend of speed and power is frightening; he puts together combinations that appear fast even when played in slow motion. Top Rank CEO Bob Arum seems determined to make the world wait for Gamboa-Juan Manuel Lopez but I don’t think he can keep putting that fight off much longer.

The 32-year-old-Pacquiao (52-3-2-) is an eight-division titlist as well as the current WBO welterweight champion, and will take a 13-bout winning streak that includes eight knockouts into his May 7 defense against Shane Mosley (46-6-1, 39 KOs).

The 28-year old Donaire (26-1, 18 KOs) earned his second championship over as many….

Manny Pacquiao: Why Is Floyd Mayweather Jr. Still Talking About Pacquiao?

3 Comments

By Tom Kinslow,

Manny Pacquiao Is Training For His Next Fight, But Floyd Mayweather Jr. Can’t Stop Talking About A Fight Between the Two.

For years, people have wanted to see a fight between Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather Jr. The only problem is that two sides have never been able to agree on conditions for a bout more specifically on blood testing leading up to and before the fight.
Mayweather Jr. wants Olympic-style testing, but Pacquiao has balked at those conditions and it has created a war of words between the two sides. We haven’t seen Money Mayweather in the ring in a long, long time, but it hasn’t stopped him from running his mouth to anyone who will listen. Take this interview with ESPN 1000 in Chicago for example, where he talked more about himself, Pacquiao and the blood testing.

Alex Ariza’s Corner Of The Ring

11 Comments

March 29Th, 2011 We took the morning off training today. This decision was made yesterday. It was made, because Manny Pacquiao had such an intense training session during the afternoon workout at the Shape Up Gym, here in Baguio. When we made this decision we also had to take into consideration that Manny Pacquiao is sparing later this afternoon.

Remember we train with a very high level of intensity that requires a lot of rest. We rest so we can allow our muscles to heal and grow. When are muscles have fully rested and healed we can focus on speed and accuracy.

We do not enter a training session over trained from the day before. If we did, we could not be at our best to focus on getting better. That is our goal everyday; our goal is, “The next day when we enter the gym we can train hard enough to continually get better”. Continue reading “Alex Ariza’s Corner Of The Ring” »

Never Mind Haye-Klitschko Or Pacquiao-Mayweather: Gamboa-Lopez Is The Most Exciting Fight That Can Be Made Today!

By James Slater - Yuriorkis Gamboa, the quite sensational Cuban featherweight king, did it again last night. Looking sizzling in stopping tough Mexican Jorge Solis inside four breathtaking rounds, scoring multiple knockdowns along the way, the 29-year-old handed Solis his most comprehensive defeat yet. Even the great Manny Pacquiao had to settle for an 8th-round KO win when he met Solis back in 2007 and, dare I say it: Pac-Man didn’t look as good as the Cuban typhoon did against the Mexican.

Here are some reviews of the book:
This review is from: Pacman: My Story of Hope, Resilience, and Never-Say-Never Determination (HARDCOVER)
I’ve watched Manny Pacquaio’s movie (his life story) many times and so I assumed this book will be the same. However, like any other fans, I also wanted to have a copy of the book. I was going to send it to my brother in the Philippines who is a HUGE fan. (He named his son, “Emmanuel” and we call him “Manny”). I started reading it last weekend and couldn’t put it down because it was totally different from the movie. There are so many lessons learned. The “author” did a great job in putting together Manny’s life. I’m hoping this is also available in Tagalog version to make it more meaningful to Filipinos like me. Manny’s words will be more touching and revealing if there will be a Tagalog version. I’m Manny’s fan because of the honor he brings to our country but he also became an inspiration to me after reading this book.

Here is another

It is an easy book to read. His story is inspiring. It is easy to see how Manny has become known as the people’s champion. He has never forgotten his humble beginnings.

Here is another

Pacman: My Story of Hope, Resilience, and Never-Say-Never Determination (Hardcover) I’ve always been a huge supporter for Pacquiao. I love how he carries himself with pride knowing that he makes other Filipinos hopeful and proud to be a flip even for just those moments in the ring. This book actually shows the reality of what he went through. Its a story that is not new to many Filipinos. The dirty streets, slum, and the feeling of utter poverty has been experienced first hand or has been humbled enough when around it. The book gives anyone a taste of what its like to come from nothing to a whole lot of things. Its a book that will motivate you to strive for better. All at the same time, Manny doesn’t forget his roots. He exudes what it is to be a down to earth Filipino, a good winner, and someone for kids to look up to. Its an easy read that will keep you turning pages because after all, who doesn’t like to hear about a true rags to riches story?

here is another

Pacman: My Story of Hope, Resilience, and Never-Say-Never Determination (Hardcover) I could not put this book down! As a huge Pacquiao fan, I felt I already knew all there was to know about Manny, turns out I was dead wrong! This book has a lot of great insight on Manny not just as a boxer, but as a person. From his early days boxing just so he’d have money to eat to becoming the #1 boxer in the world making millions, this book covers it all. The author Timothy James really gives the reader all there is to know about Manny. Don’t let other “Pacman” books fool you, this is the REAL DEAL! I recommend this book to any real Pacquiao / Boxing fan!

Pacquiao to outbox Mosley

You don’t have to be a master of the ring to know the key to beating Shane Mosley.

“The key (to a victory) is to outbox Shane Mosley,” said Roach, who will train Pacquiao for two days in Metro Manila before returning to Baguio Sunday afternoon. Continue reading “Pacquiao to outbox Mosley” »

Caleb Grummet goes from Orbit Room to HBO because of Pacquiao absence

No Comments

By Michael Marley,

A totally obscure heavyweight boxer from Floyd Mayweather Junior’s hometown of Grand Rapids, Mich., will be a real Cinderfella Saturday night on the HBO boxing card from Atlantic City.

His name is Caleb Grummet, I kid you not, and HBO will show clips of the 0-0-1 fighter, who made his pro debut at The Orbit Room in Grand Rapids and fought a four-round majority draw.

It can be truly said that Grummet is yet another beneficiary of the Manny Pacquiao Effect because HBO is only showing Grummet as the opponent of Baltimore Ravens football safety Tommy Zbikowski, Bob Arum’s latest novelty project.

HBO Boxing After Dark Cheat Sheet- Mar. 26, 2011

No Comments

By Marty Mulcahey

Last night, ESPN2 featured two talented Cuban upstarts; a HBO show like tonight’s is where those men aspire to ply their trade. Currently, fellow Cuban expatriate Yuriorkis Gamboa is paving a fast path for his compatriots to follow. Select few boxers have the style and charisma that destines them to HBO gigs and it was evident from his amateur days that Gamboa is such a fighter. The last boxer to combine the powerful skill set of Gamboa was cocky Englishman Naseem Hamed. Both men’s flair put them on HBO’s wish list early on; I just hope Gamboa does not flame out as unexpectedly as Hamed did. Jorge Solis, Gamboa’s opponent, is not to be underestimated and can make it a close or ugly fight, which is why I tab the undercard battle of undefeateds between Miguel Garcia and Matt Remillard to steal the show.

ALEX ARIZA’S CORNER OF THE RING

23 Comments

You guys are bombarding with me with comments and questions and I love it.

It is never easy to start something you have never done before. Writing a blog is something I have never done before. When Timothy James asked me to write for Manny Pacquiao’s Official Website I thought he was crazy. I almost smacked him. I heard that dude was crazy, so he was just proving to be what I heard. The past two days I have read all your feed back, comments, and questions I am now understanding why I am doing this.

Luckily Tim took his time and explained to me what this blog would be. This blog is about what I know, so I do feel some level of comfort. I have never written out what I do for anyone. I may not even explain it much to my fighters. I am more of an action person and tell them, “Just Do It.” Thank God they trust me and for the most part they do it.

PACQUIAO UNWINDS AFTER IMPRESSIVE FIRST TWO WEEKS OF TRAINING

1 Comment
By Timothy James,
For Manny Pacquiao, Week 2 of training has already come to a close at the Shape Up Gym in Baguio, Philippines. Normally, the Champ begins on Monday and works all the way through until the final bell rings on Saturday, when Freddie Roach officially calls an end to the week of training. He is allowed one day of rest, Sunday, per week. It’s the price that must be paid in order to be the best fighter in the world. This week, however, was a little bit different as Pacquiao was allowed two days off after an impressive start to training camp. You don’t have to tell the Champ twice.
