24. Manny Robles

Robles has trained Team USA as well as a host of professional boxers. However, he is most famous for being the head coach of former heavyweight champion Andy Ruiz. The Mexican boxer stunned the whole by KO’ing Anthony Joshua. However, after Ruiz lost the rematch in disappointing fashion, Robles took the rare step of criticizing his fighter in public. He also quit his position as Ruiz’s coach because the fighter partied too hard.

Robles slammed Ruiz for his under-preparation. He said, “I don’t think I lost the connection with my fighter, I just think it’s more him, it’s more the individual. The individual has to be disciplined, you got to be hungry. I can’t want it more than him. He’s got to want it.” To be fair, he had a point but also threw his athlete under the bus. Robles is not someone who minces words.
