Special Screening and Conversation with Peter Berg & Freddie Roach
An Evening with On Freddie Roach
Thursday, May 31, 2012
Peter Berg, Executive Producer
Join us for a special screening and onstage conversation celebrating HBO and Emmy-nominated filmmaker Peter Berg’s acclaimed docu-series On Freddie Roach. The cinéma-vérité series focuses on Freddie Roach, the world-famous boxing trainer who owns and operates the Wild Card Boxing Club in Hollywood, where he has produced a host of world champions. This intensely personal look at Roach chronicles his life and career against the backdrop of Parkinson's disease, an ailment very likely linked to his own boxing past. Roach has trained more than twenty 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.
Earlier this year, the U.S. Olympic Committee 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.
