Michael Bisping was put in news recently as he attempted to disprove a rumor that had been circulating that he had gotten knocked out in a sparring session after he disrespected a member of the gym.

The gym in question is the Wild Card Boxing Club in Hollywood, California. As for the rumor, a supposedly disrespectful Bisping had gotten a change of opponent during a sparring session. The new opponent was said to be of a much higher level than the previous one, and had also been told to knock Bisping out by a member of the coaching staff.

Now, famed boxing coach Freddie Roach has seemingly come to Bisping’s aid, discrediting the rumors. ┬áRoach operates the Wild Card Boxing Club and was recently asked to substantiate the rumors via his official Twitter account.

Roach responded with a simple “Not true” when asked:

This may put an end to the rumor that seems to have been all but quelled by strong words from Bisping and a concise response from Roach.
