Freddie Roach Talks Linares vs Gesta Pre-Fight – Famed trainer Freddie Roach was at Golden Boy’s press conference in L.A. yesterday to support his fighter Mercito Gesta.
Gesta will be fighting WBA world lightweight champion Jorge Linares at the Forum in Inglewood, California this coming January 27th as part of a doubleheader of title fights on HBO. Roach is uniquely qualified to talk about the bout in that he has a history with both fighters. Roughly five years ago, the well traveled Linares spent time in Los Angeles with Roach at the Wild Card Gym. Now, Roach is preparing Gesta to meet his former charge.
In this latest TBC segment, our roving cameraman Marcelino Castillo caught Freddie Roach as he spoke to the media after the Tuesday, December 12th press conferences in Los Angeles. Check out “Matthysse vs Kiram Live Press Conference” here at TBC for footage from the December 12th press conference.
