Tonight on HBO, the six-part documentary series On Freddie Roach will debut, directed by Peter Berg. The documentary is a real life look into the world of Freddie Roach, well known both as one of the top boxing trainers in the world, as well as a man struggling with Parkinson’s Disease. For boxing fans and for the general viewing public as well, this should be an intriguing show, and something that’s worth catching.
