    Default Freddy Roach..

    Not only one of the best boxing trainers in the world, did you know he has Parkinson's disease?

    Watching the stupid Shaq vs show, and he is fighting Oscar, thats all good, (well not good, kinda stupid) but Freddy Roach is training Shaq, and he has Parkinson's, great guy...gotta love it.

    According to Shaq, Freddy doesnt want any special treatment, he just deals with it....

    Interesting I thought!!

    Freddy is super cool.
    His signature line is "It Aint Easy."


    My wife has come down with Parkinsons,, and believe me,, It ain't easy.

    Huge props to Freddy for not letting his disability get him down.

    Been effecting him for at least 5 years now, getting worse unfortunately. Better trainer than boxer.

    Great trainer....we saw him one morning during the training of one of his fighters before a big fight, he had to work out real hard for at least an hour to loosen up so he could train his fighter..it is amazing to watch, once he starts training the fighter it is like he is just fine for those few hours......but as said before it is getting worse...hope he can do what he loves for a few more years.....

    Now if the US Olympic committee would just take at closer look at Freddie,,,
    I think he'd be as legendary as Dundee.
