Macau - Manny Pacquiao's trainer Freddie Roach was in a physical altercation with the entourage of opponent Brandon Rios on Wednesday, four days out from their fight.

Roach approached Rios trainer Robert Garcia in the gym both camps are sharing at The Venetian casino on Macau's Cotai Strip, saying they had gone past their scheduled time and should leave.
