Well done and very interesting behind the scenes of Freddie Roach and how successful he has been considering what he has gone through.

Good series. Looks at Freddie from a very honest window. At first (1st episode) I was a little put off on the focus on Parkinson's...I didn't want it to be 6 episodes of him swallowing pills and doctors visits....I wanted more of his life philosophy and what's made him who he is. It ended up rounding out and gave a holistic view of Freddie's life. Worth checking out if you're a fight fan or anyone into documentaries.

I liked it because I watched him come up as a young fighter on ESPN and then have followed his career as a trainer since. His struggle with Parkinson's is a big part of my interest too, because I always thought he would have been a champion if he had better defense, and no doubt his boxing career (and street fights too) were the main contributor to the development of his disease. He just took too much punishment, but always had a lot of heart in the ring and never gave up. He knows boxing and is a premier trainer, I firmly believe Pacquiao would have beat Mayweather 5 years ago, and that Mayweather knows this too. If your're not really into boxing then this documentary would probably bore you. To me it was a good watch, interesting to learn more about these people who put it all on the line in the ring. To paraphrase Mike Tyson, "you can play baseball, you can play football, but you can't play boxing".

Freddie Roach is impressive in many ways. From his boxing acumen to the way he deals with his Parkinson's, he is relaxed and at peace with his life. The series does a good job of showing Freddie and his family as well as how he gets boxer's ready. Because it is a documentary series, you can't quite quibble with there not being enough of a story, but on the assumption that it would be mostly boxing fans who would watch this series, I would have liked more insight into how he trains boxers and what, exactly, it is that makes him such a formidable coach and trainer. Nevertheless, I was never bored and Freddie emerges as a man you would both like to know and to have in your metaphorical and literal corner.

I enjoyed the series quite a bit as did my wife. I am a big fan of Manny Pacquiao admirer of Freddie roach and all that he has overcome. His story told in this miniseries allows you to get to know a lot about the man.

It is a laid back view of one of the busiest trainers in boxing who also has Parkinson's. No apologies, no mugging for the camera just straight forward. The film only got to dig as far as Freddy would let them, so back stories explaining aspects of his life are missing. He is not shallow clearly there is deep water. Very interesting and thought provoking.
