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.
