Plot Synopsis

Freddie Roach, the world-famous boxing trainer who owns and operates the famed Wild Card Boxing Club in Hollywood, continues to train world-class boxers as he battles Parkinsons disease, which is an ailment very likely linked to his own boxing past. A native of Dedham, MA, Roach has an extensive amateur boxing background. He fought as a professional under the tutelage of legendary Hall-of-Fame trainer Eddie Futch, ending his professional boxing career in 1987 with a record of 41 wins and 13 losses. Upon retiring, Roach became Futch's apprentice. In 1992, Mickey Rourke financed his first gym, the Outlaw Boxing Club. Roach has trained more than 20 world champions, including Manny Pacquiao, Amir Khan, Oscar de la Hoya and Mike Tyson. He has been honored five times as Trainer of the Year by the Boxing Writers Association of America and has been inducted into the World Boxing Hall of Fame. In December 2011, Roach was elected to the International Boxing Hall of Fame. Now, with his unique partnership with the U.S. Olympic Committee, Roach will create a program allowing up to ten Olympic hopefuls to train at the Wild Card Gym.
