Russell Wilson working with legendary boxing trainer Freddie Roach

Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson is getting boxing lessons this offseason from one of the greats.

Wilson was recently filmed working with trainer Freddie Roach, whose client list includes Manny Pacquiao, Oscar De La Hoya, and Mike Tyson, among others.

The pair also worked together last offseason at Roach's gym, Wild Card, in Hollywood.

"It wasn't the first time I boxed, but it was the first time I got to go work out with Freddie Roach," Wilson told ESPN's Sheil Kapadia in July 2017. "One thing I really wanted to work on was my feet. And Freddie and I worked on my feet a bunch. Just working on my balance and quickness and just continuing to build my game.

"The idea of being able to do anything and everything at any moment; and so you have to be prepared for that. Also, great boxers have great defense too, meaning being able to move and get away and all that. So that was something that was really important to me too. And it’s a great conditioning workout - one of the hardest workouts you could ever do."
