Hall of Fame trainer Freddie Roach is currently 58 years young and still actively training fighters despite having Parkinson’s Disease which some predicted would have ended his active training career by now a number of years back.

‘Pacman’ at the age of 40 recorded a shut out unanimous points win over 29 year old Adrien Broner last month at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
