REAL SPORTS WITH BRYANT GUMBEL

VISITS FREDDIE ROACH, ONE OF BOXING’S MOST SUCCESSFUL TRAINERS,

WHEN THE EMMY®-WINNING SHOW RETURNS JULY 21, EXCLUSIVELY ON HBO

Winner of 21 Sports Emmys® in 14 years, REAL SPORTS WITH BRYANT GUMBEL presents more enterprising features and reporting when its 148th edition, 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

Segments include:

*All the Right Moves.  Like elite fighters, trainers can get on a hot streak, and no teacher in the sweet science is currently hotter than Freddie Roach.  A journeyman prizefighter in his younger years, Roach has fashioned a potential Hall of Fame career, working out of his famed Wild Card Gym in Hollywood with his most accomplished pupil, pound-for-pound king Manny Pacquiao, among other sluggers.  Roach’s own story includes a troubled childhood and a battle with Parkinson’s disease today.  As REAL SPORTS correspondent Mary Carillo shows, it’s easy to see why this three-time BWAA Trainer of the Year is currently the man in demand.

Producer:  Lisa Bennett.
