Summary
Box-office sensations Mark Wahlberg and Christian Bale star in the film The Fighter, and Irish Thunder is the story behind the film, the story of "Irish" Micky Ward's unlikely road to the world light welterweight title.Welcome to Lowell, where anything can happen.Rocky Marciano fought at the Auditorium in 1947. Mike Tyson fought there in his Golden Gloves days. Sugar Ray Leonard won there, as did Marvin Hagler. Each of them prepared for his battle downstairs in the boiler room, just like thousands of other kids."Irish" Micky Ward grew up in the 1970s and 80s as a tough kid from Lowell, Massachusetts—a town where boxers were once bred as a means of survival. A hard worker who overcame bad luck, bad management, and chronic pain in his hands, he avoided the pitfall of poverty and dead-end work that plagued Lowell to become a Golden Gloves junior welterweight.Ward participated in street fights from an early age and was forever known by his opponents..
