On Freddie Roach Airs January 20th!
Starting January 20,2012, HBO Sports presents the first episode of a 6 part series called On Freddie Roach. If you don’t know boxing or Parkinson’s Disease, Freddie Roach is a successful former lightweight boxer and one of the greatest trainers of all-time. Roach has trained Mike Tyson, Oscar De La Hoya, and Manny Pacquiao, just to name a few. 28 of his boxers have become world champions.
A few years ago, Roach was diagnosed with PD, but it hasn’t slowed him down and he continues to keep his bevy of fighters winning. He is a force of determination, drive, and inspiration.
I can’t wait! Thank you, HBO!
Here is a recent New York Times interview with Mr. Roach.
