MACAU >> Manny Pacquiao trainer Freddie Roach was in a physical altercation with the entourage of opponent Brandon Rios on Wednesday (Tuesday in Hawaii), four days before their fight.
Roach approached Rios trainer Robert Garcia in the gym that both camps are sharing at The Venetian casino on Macau's Cotai Strip, saying they had gone past their scheduled time and should leave.
Video of the incident shows a heated argument before Roach was kicked in the upper body by Alex Ariza, a member of the Rios camp who formerly worked with Roach.
Roach and Garcia were scheduled to appear at a joint news conference with both boxers later Wednesday.
