The Emmy Award winning HBO's Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel returns Tuesday July 21st, exclusively on HBO.

This installment of HBO's Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel will feature a segment titled: *All the Right Moves featuring the hottest trainer in the fight game three time trainer of the year, Freddie Roach.

Roach started off as a journeyman fighter who fought with tremendous heart, going toe- to-toe never backing down. His famous Wild Card gym has trained some of the biggest names in boxing and he is most proud of his current prized student sensation Manny Pacquiao.

Roach has come from a hard troubled childhood and is currently fighting every day with Parkinson's Disease. He has often stated that by training his fighters so intensely six days a week for twelve hours a day, is his personal way of combating Parkison's.

Freddie's mother has profoundly influenced him by two major rules to live by:

1.) Always brush your teeth  

2.) Never get married.

At the age of 49-years-old, Roach is still single and often considers his many fighters within his stable, to be his children. From the fighters I have talked to they can all confirm that Roach indeed cares and treats every  single one of them as if they were his own kids.

I personally agree with the Roach's rules. Some of my friends have had root canals recently and they tell me it is hell on earth. I have my spin tooth brush and no incentive to get married especially when I see these losers sometimes two time, three time losers and all the world of wrong that they go through.

This will be the 148th edition of HBO's Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel , available in HDTV, debuts TUESDAY, JULY 21 (10:00 p.m. ET/PT & 9:00 p.m. CT), exclusively on HBO.
            HBO On Demand availability:   July 27-Aug. 17
