Roach to be featured on Real Sports
Freddie Roach will be featured on HBO's Emmy award winning series Real Sports with Bryant Gumble, which debuts on HBO Tuesday, July 21, at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
Real Sports correspondent Mary Carillo and producer Lisa Bennett spent a week with Roach at the trainer's home and gym in Hollywood, Calif., and covered his acceptance of an unprecedented third “Trainer of the Year” award from the Boxing Writers Assoc. of America in New York city last month, in preparation of the segment entitled “All the Right Moves.”
The segment tells the story of Roach's journey from a troubled childhood to his up-and-down career as a prizefighter in his younger years to his current position as the sport's most sought-after trainer, as well as his battle with Parkinson’s disease.
