Freddie Roach stars in HBO's reality docu-series "On Freddie Roach."

A native of Dedham, Massachusetts, Freddie 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.

The U.S. Olympic Committee recently announced a unique partnership with Roach in an effort to ensure that America's top amateur fighters have access to the finest training in preparation for the 2012 Olympic Games in London. This partnership will create a program allowing up to ten Olympic hopefuls to train at the Wild Card Gym, which has become synonymous with world-class performance.

The 51-year-old bachelor lives next door to his mother, just a few miles from Wild Card. Roach has been in the corner for some of the most memorable moments of the past few years on HBO Sports' flagship "World Championship Boxing" series, including the consensus 2010 Fight of the Year, when Amir Khan defeated Marcos Maidana in Las Vegas.
