Video of Ariza giving something suspect to Maidana


By @Livefight

Footage has began to surface on the web of "Fitness Coach" Alex Ariza administering something odd to Marcos Maidana during the break between round 11 and 12.

It would appear from the video that some sort of cube or object is dropped into a napkin, which is immeadiately applied to Maidana's face.

The fighter recoils and then lets out a large breath of air afterwards, leading lots of observers to speculate that it could perhaps be 'smelling salts'.

Ammonium Carbonate, to give it the technical name is usually supplied as a solid crystallised block about the size of a sugar cube.
