Alex Ariza, Pacquiao’s strength and conditioning coach, commented about Marquez looking bigger and stronger as well. Together with Heredia’s past links to doping, Marquez found himself on the defensive about his fit physique.
“It’s a shame all the work I’ve done has been trashed by these guys, Conte and Ariza,” Marquez said.
“I think you shouldn’t be saying stuff like that,” he said.
Asked about Marquez working with Heredia, Pacquiao said: “I don’t have a comment about that.”
