So I'm not on Twitter and probably never will be. However, most "known" peoples' twitters are easy to Google and read. Alex Ariza is having this little Q & A and theres some interesting stuff he's answering. I noted some of them

On Peterson Doping

Blue = Question or Comment Red = Ariza's answer

@AhsanGTC: the drugs peterson took, could they have damaged amir khan in the ring?
No.RT

@___L7___: big respect you being honest about Peterson, and how what he took wasnt in any way performance enhancing
Thx Bro

@RocThom0512:@sikmofo LP camp should have informed people. He had legit medical reasoning and proof. Terrible on his camp's part
Yes it is

@ACE_Boxing: do you think the use of PED's had anything to do with LP's performance in their 1st fight?
No, dose was way to low


On Manny

@filifunk: is manny finally listening to you?
Yes, right now.

@mosborne704: Is Manny doing all that u ask? Including plyometrics and strength training?
As of right now, Yes hes doing the full program

@MrMudsy: how's manny looking ?
Good, but still needs work.

@bgoodcdn: are you confident MP's leg cramps are fixed?
So far so good.RT

@KiDAngelG: do you honestly believe manny beat marquez?
Yes, Juan took the last two rds off.

@_bradleypearson Why doesn't manny fight at 140lb if it's his best weight class? how much will many weigh on fight night?
151

@mrboxingtab:@animeflipI THINK PACQUIAO HAVE ALL THE TOOLS TO FIGHT SERGIO BUT IN A CATCHWEIGHT LIKE 150OR SOMETHING
Martinez will be dead

@animeflip: Dream match, Martinez vs. Pacquiao, what are your thoughts? You think Pac can handle Maravilla?
Manny cant make that weight.

Other fighters he trains


@KiDAngelG: who has better work ethic chaves or manny?
Same, Chaves listens more.

@TOPCLASSBOXING: - hi Alex, who would you say as the best work ethic from all the fighters you have trained?
Khan and Linares.

@deepesh_T: who is the most naturally gifted fighter you work with?
Linares.

@21mvo: What do you think of Khan vs. Juan Manuel Marquez?
Khan to fast.

@MrPugilist1:, I heard Chavez jnr is lined up to fight S.Martinez any truth in it?
NO!


On Bob Arum and May/Pac negotiations

@TheBoxingExpert: why doesn't bob want to work with Golden Boy?
Envy and greed wants it all for him.

@stef_an718: why doesn't koncz do his job and advise Manny to leave Bob
Cause he works for Bob..

@Fern_Diddy: if Manny were a free agent or under GBP would we have already seen Mayweather vs Pacquiao???
1000%!

@MarcosONE1: why doesn't manny just sign with Oscar de la Hoya and golden boy so we can get this Mayweather fight over with
I wish!

@Dookers76 Hey Alex!Is old greedy uncle Bob going to keep us from seeing Chavez Jr shut Martinez's mouth?
I think Yes. Unless he signs him

@Sox05: @philipleone Its not all Arum its fucking floyd too with his BS demands
Wrong, its Arum.

@Way2Legit2Kwit: Do you think Manny Pacquiao deserves 50/50 from the PPV record maker Floyd Mayweather?
Not if Floyd's #s Are higher.

@Sox05: Isn't FightHype FloydHype? All they do is praise him and talk bad about Manny.
I disagree

@get0ffdanutzz: Do you think Manny vs. Bradley will come close to Floyd's 1.5 PPV? Will it do a mill?
No, no one knows Bradly.

Very interesting. But ariza always has something to say

Strange how he said julio listens better than manny I would have had it the other way around.

Man, my "Gangsta of the Year" award always goes to Ariza. Dude holds no punches, especially after reading some of the articles on the front page over the past several months.

He doesn't worry about shit, he just puts it out there. I love how he smashes Bob anytime he's asked about it. Damn, I need to check the archives and find that article where he lost his shit when they asked about Chavez being prepared for his upcoming (but cancelled) fight against Hearns last year, and how Arum threw Chavez under the bus.

God that was funny! Speaking of Chavez, more than likely he's right about Chavez "listening more". It's a well-known fact that Chavez is lazy as hell, but that doesn't mean that he wont listen...well, at least while Ariza's in front of him anyway.

Pacquiao has more star power and believes that he calls the shots (since he's become so big), so I can see him deviating from the plan and doing what he pleases, at times.

Alex Ariza jUST DOESN'T GIVE A FUCK! It's rare you get such brutal honesTY from any1 in the Pac Camp that doesn't mimic what has already been said by the BobFather. This is what is needed! You can't gag Alex so I'm loving this. I wish Manny or Freddy both would state how they really feel rather than flip-flop on their stances about drug testing, money, and venue.

It's weird because if you read the other tweets, he has a lot of respect for Floyd and Martinez. He also loves him some Oscar de La Hoya. When you read the tweets, you can almost feel the frustration with Manny jumping off the page. It's almost as if he doesn't trust that Manny is giving his all. Everytime someone ask how Manny is doing it's always something like "good...for now"

I found it interesting that he agrees that Floyd should get the higher purse. I hope fighthype interviews him regarding the Khan/Peterson fiasco. I would like to hear him expound upon the situation being that he seems qualified and because he actually buys Peterson's story and has sympathy for him.
leonthegee
I gotta give it up to Ariza. Hes a scumbag but in a good way.

Interesting what he said about Peterson's levels of testosterone, which is what his doctor said i.e. too low to give him an advantage. It sounds more and more as if Peterson's camp really screwed the pooch on that one.

I'm starting to think that Peterson and his camp thought that if it was too low to effect him it would be too low to get caught on. But that still isn't a good reason not to disclose it.

So basically amirs strength and conditioning coach is saying that he has no excuse for losing that fight Haha

Agreed, they should've been pro-active.

I think it was just irresponsibility, which is why I said amir would look better if he just stfu about it. Him being up in arms about something that his own coach says was a non issue only makes him looks like an excuse maker. I just wish the media powers with the most exposure (HBO, ESPN, Showtime etc ) would give Alex Ariza some much due face time. I think it would really help the sport.

It's obvious that Khan just wants to take the easiest path to a big fight. It's almost like he's trying to hard to shove it down our throats that he is this "great" fighter that deserves big fights.

He wants to fight these guys (no doubt), but when he almost blows the fight (Maidana), gets his ass floored (Prescott), or looks less than stellar against a guy with skills (Peterson)...then he wants no parts of them and damn near petitions to GBP and the public to keep these guys away from him, so he can move forward.

Like you said, if he learns to STFU sometimes, or even wait to start whining about stuff, then he'd be okay. Wouldn't it be cool if he waited to speak about the Peterson incident AFTER he fought his next fight in June or July? It would show the public that he can stay composed, but no, he insists on making a big deal about it.

The way Peterson fought Khan, is the way he fights EVERYONE...Khan just looked like an amateur. Truthfully, Lamont looked tired in certain spots of that fight, so for Khan to go off crying about "Now we know how Peterson survived his punches" and blowing the 2 first round knockdowns, is just bogus.

Im glad Ariza has somewhat stayed out of it, or kept his opinion to a minimum...

props to ariza for his honesty.

anyone else find this comment here kind of suspiscious? huh.gif

@ACE_Boxing: do you think the use of PED's had anything to do with LP's performance in their 1st fight?
Ariza:No, dose was way to low unsure.gif

Found this incredibly interesting and if it goes public, it should help Floyd's cause. I never heard of this 45/45 split before Arum mentioned it either.

@thisisnotmark- Do you think being against Bob Arum helps the situation any? Tell Oscar/Schaefer accept the 45/45 split, 10 goes to winner.

Alex Ariza- I guarantee that's the first time they've ever heard about a 45/45 10...

Hell hath no fury like a Bobfather scorned....apparently Ariza's no longer the strength and conditioning coach for Julio Caesar "eight ball" Chavez Jr. It might be a one off thing because of time constraints, but the timing's a bit too coincidental after Ariza's attempt to burn down the massa's house... Here's a link to the article from Ringtv.com

I guess we'll find out if it's true in the coming days.
