Micky Ward


Whenever I talk to boxing fans about last year’s critical success The Fighter, they all have the same reaction. That is to say they liked the movie, but don’t understand why it ended before it got to the best part. The best part they were envisioning was Micky Ward’s legendary trilogy of fights with Arturo Gatti, which catapulted both men into boxing superstardom. The three fights, which are renowned for their brutality, started as a fierce rivalry and ended with the two men in a close friendship. While talking to Extra’s Mario Lopez on the Academy Awards’ red carpet, Wahlberg had more than a little to say about those fights. When discussing his future plans, he said, “Now we’re gonna talk about doing number two. We’re gonna do the Ward/Gatti trilogy and make it real.” So there you go fight fans and fans of The Figher, it appears that we’re going to get an entire film focused on the Micky Ward and Arturo Gatti story. I just hope Christian Bale will be okay having to smoke more crack.



Not much is known at this point but Christian Bale could be ready to fight in two weeks.
