Alex Ariza: Freddie Roach Never Really Trained Chavez

Alex Ariza-Freddie RoachMexico- Well-renowned strength and conditioning coach Alex Ariza claimed that hall of fame trainer Freddie Roach  train Julio Cesar Chavez Jr.

He made this statement during a phone interview with a Mexican media outlet when asked about Chavez’ decision to replace Roach with Vladimir Baldenebro for his next fight. “There will not be a void without Roach, Vladimir (Baldenebro) would be the one training Chavez, Roach would only train him when the HBO cameras were rolling. Vladis would train him throughout the training sessions for most of his fight, Freddie would arrive the last week to do pad work, but Vladi was really his trainer”

Ariza also added “There is no difference in training except for the fact that Roach will not be here during the last week, the best fight Chavez had was against Manfredo and we were the ones who trained him, Roach of coarse, arrived at the end and took the credit.”

Alex Ariza, who also trains Manny Pacquiao amongst others is also putting together a plan for Pacquiao who will fight Brandon Rios in November, “we need to change things up a bit, Brandon Rios will not be an easy fight, he’s young, he comes forward, he could take a punch and he has a heavy hand, we need to have a good training session to ensure a victory for Manny”

Legendary record producer Clive Davis, (and as a singer, the man I would most like to get stuck in an elevator with) has revealed he is bisexual.

In his new book The Soundtrack Of My Life, he says he has been in relationships with two men for the past 20 years.   “For over 50 years I never had sex with a male. I wasn’t repressed. I had very good sexual relationships with women,” he tells ABC’s Nightline.

“I’m not lying,” Davis said. “[Bisexuality] exists.”  “I never felt shame, no.”  “I felt puzzled. The subject of bisexuality really needs much more discussion. It’s a status that does exist.”

I am Bipolar, and I’m afraid to come out because I feel I will be judged harshly. I have a mental illness and people judge me for it. Clive Davis coming out, inspires me to consider announcing my illness.

After surviving a plane crash in 2008, Travis Barker has not flown ever since, and wont make Blink 182’s Aussie tour.

He took to Facebook,  I’m sorry to announce i won’t be joining Blink-182 on this Australian tour. I still haven’t gotten over the horrific events that took place the last time i flew when my plane crashed and 4 people were killed, two being my best friends. I gave the band my blessing to take another drummer if they still wanted to do the tour without me. I hope to come to Australia again some day perhaps by ship if need be. Unfortunately, there wasn’t a boat that worked with the schedule this time around. Once again I’m sorry to all the fans.

I can’t say I blame him, I hate planes, and would rather catch a train a boat, or even a bus.


Mindy McCready

In what will not come as a shock to most, country star Mindy McCready has committed suicide at her home in Arkansas.

Police said “Ms. McCready was pronounced dead at the scene from what appears to be a single self-inflicted gunshot wound,” the sheriff’s department says in a statement. “At this time family members have been notified of the incident. Ms. McCready will be transported to the Arkansas State Crime Lab for an autopsy and the matter will be fully investigated.”

McCready appeared on Oprah Winfrey’s show a few years ago, she was deeply troubled, a drug and alcohol addict, as well as mental health problems. She seemed to be a very unhappy soul. Such a shame for a beautiful and talented lady, she leaves behind two sons,  Zander, 6, and Zayne, 10 months.

RIP Mindy. I hope have found the love you were seeking.

Hugh Grant sure does wait til the last minute. His daughter was born when he was 50, and now his on/off girlfriend has given birth to the actors son.

Grant tweeted “Am thrilled my daughter now has a brother. Adore them both to an uncool degree.”

He said both children “have a fab mum” and: “To be crystal clear, I am the Daddy.”

Can you really be sure of that Hugh, considering you and your babies mama, is just part time sex to you?
