The Wild Card is the inspiring and amusing autobiography of boxing#xE2;#x80;#x99;s greatest trainer, Freddie Roach: an ex-pug living with Parkinson#xE2;#x80;#x99;s, the most famous white man in the Philippines, a formidable street fighter, and a millionaire who slept for years in a makeshift apartment within his Los Angeles gym, The Wild Card. The Wild Card begins with tales of Roach#xE2;#x80;#x99;s abusive youth, his own boxing career, and his apprenticeship under legendary trainer Eddie Futch (trainer of Joe Frazier) before moving on to his courageous battle against Parkinson#xE2;#x80;#x99;s disease, his relationship with Hollywood celebrities (Mickey Rourke, Mark Wahlberg), and his rise to the top of his profession training world champions like Mike Tyson; Oscar De La Hoya; Michael Moorer; Bernard Hopkins; Wladimir Klitchko; James Toney; and his prized pupil, the pound- for-pound #1 fighter in the world, Manny Pacquiao.
