I have asked a veteran of sweet science what he thought about a new trend of boxers hiring strength and conditioning coaches and nutritionists to help them to get ready for a fight. ”I am old school,” said Tony Rivera who has been in the corner of such ring greats as Roberto Duran and recently, Marco Antonio Barrera:” To me it’s just a trainer and a fighter. It works best that way.”
