    I know Freddie personally. I was in the army with his brother Pepper at Fort Bragg. Pepper taught me how to box in the early 80's at the Ft Bragg boxing gym. It was good times back then. Pepper and I went to Boston a few times and I met the whole family. One of those trips was to see Freddie fight in the Boston Garden on the under-card of Marvelous Marvin Hagler's first middleweight title defense in 81. I also got to meet Freddie's trainer Eddie Futch that night. Being a longtime boxing fan from down south it was a good night for me and lots of good luck meeting Pepper, Freddie, and the entire Roach Family. They were all very good to me, including all of Pepper's friends in the Boston area.

    Freddie Roach will go down as one of the all-time greatest trainers in boxing. His training methods fundamentally transform his fighters into the best that they can possibly be. He can take a solid fight and make them into a good fighter. He’ll take a good fighter and make them great. He’s able to add layers to a fighter’s game that were never there before. He taught one-handed Pacquiao how to use both hands. Taught him the art of movement and balance. How to body punch and stop head-hunting. Watching what he and Pacquiao were able to do together was magical. I love the guy.

      Not only a Trainer and Coach bro, Roach is also a Father for Manny Pacquiao for many years, Roach treated Pacquiao like he's owned son. Since Pacquiao didnt expirience a loved and support from he's real biological father. So all Roach dream before when he was a boxer he gave to Manny Pacquiao, so even Roach retired early in Boxing he's Achievements came true to the man Named Manny Pacquiao.

They also entice humanity to reject God's salvation and accept worship from humans in exchange for human sacrifice and detestable sexual ritual acts. Some of the most financially powerful people on the planet are among them.

      Roach developing his fighters defences by improving their offence a little bit too much. Pacquiao became a defencive master in a lowkey manner when Pacquiao started to develop that right hook. he started to learn how to become responsible in his defence after throwing a right counter hook to win the exchanges most of the time. and Roach improved Cotto's placement of punches plus he became more technical throwing his jabs which are already his main weapon.

    Wow, that's a great story. I knew about everything except that Manny was getting ready to go back unsuccessfully to the Philippines, when word of the Ledwaba opportunity came and he took it, and that he was a 60 to 1 underdog. Wow, so close to giving up and fate takes a turn. Knowing that story, it's always so fun to watch the Ledwaba fight again.

    I got the chance to meet Freedie Roach and train at his gym every so often. What strikes me as the most interesting thing about Mr. Roach is that he sits there on his stool watching the fighters in old shorts and shirts. You would never know freedie is a millionaire.

    How many fighters did they pass on who could've have gone on to be great champions.It's pretty sad that we wouldn't have known who Manny Pacquiao was if it wasn't for that mishap, But mostly thanks to one of the greatest boxing coach to have ever existed that let people know how great Manny really was.

      He is not only Trainer/Coach to Manny Pacquiao he is also a Father for Manny Pacquiao, since Pacquiao is rised and became a boxing without any child support of he's Father. So for me theres no Manny Pacquiao without Roach because Roach is the only trainer believed that Pacquiao is became Popular Boxer in US many Boxing Trainer Reject Pacquiao before.

  • @ramlangoddos4425

    I always have high respect for Freddie Roach who had been a long time trainer for Manny Pacquiao. At a time when many critics talked trash about Roach, Pacquiao was racking victory after victory against top contenders and beating world champions to become himself, a multiple world champion in eight weight classes. Those critics had to eat their words.
