Yes, and Manny was just a co-trainer, as his conditioning and sparring was run by Fritz for that fight. Manny was steamed because he said Fritz and Wlad's old handlers would only have him spar for 4 high paced rounds.
Since getting with Manny under his full control after that fight.... Wlad spars for over 100 rounds by fight night, and at least 10-12 rounds a time with different partners moving in and out. He said that he taught Wladimir how to think and fight when tired, which is what his past trainers failed to teach him.
