Freddie Roach, as history tells it, spent twenty years intensely training as a boxer from the tender age of six before retiring and easing into his career as a boxing trainer. After so many years of actively boxing as a competitor, Freddie’s fundamental skills were, of course, razor-sharp. But, what makes Freddie Roach arguably the greatest combat sports trainer of all time is his ability to see—and to train his fighters to see—the bigger, global picture of the fight. He trains his fighters to go beyond their sharp fundamentals, avoiding being overly focused on the blow-by-blow and minute-by-minute action, and instead seeing a much broader picture and game plan for each fighter’s opponent that Freddie would relentlessly drill into their heads leading up to the fight.
