Most don't know it, but Freddie was actually the trainer for Mark Wahlberg in his Golden Globe nominated performance in "The Fighter".
"Wahlberg is a pretty good fighter actually. He trains every day, and he has a boxing gym in his house that's as big as my boxing gym."
Now that Freddie is such a famous trainer, things have only improved for him since his days as a boxer. Both his paycheck and his lifestyle have only gone up.
"Money is much better. My biggest payday as a fighter was $75,000. So, I do a little bit better now."
Freddie goes on to talk about his career as both a boxer and a trainer, and details what he loves so much about the sport. Listen to the interview below:
