Re: Andy Ruiz drops trainer Manny Robles
He could have literally not done anything between the first and second fight (weight being the same)and been more of a threat. Now, it's the trainers fault he was lazy, pissed away his money and packed on the weight? Classic example of a guy that is destined for mediocrity. A trainer can show you what to do but you gotta walk that walk.
Seems like a cool nice guy and all but I can't have sympathy for this dude. not on something like this. It's not like he was born with a silver spoon up his a$$ or something and never knew disappointment. He worked construction with his father and started his career in Mexico. He could have taken the money spent on the Rolls and hired a fitness coach. If you don't have enough faith to invest in yourself, How can you expect anyone else to? Is he gonna try to go back to Freddy now?
They want your @$$ beat because upsets make news. News brings about excitement, excitement brings about ratings. The objective is to bring you up to the tower and tear your @$$ down. And if you don't believe that, you're crazy.
