Product Description

Product Description

The critically acclaimed, Academy Award–winning film The Fighter made the world stand up and cheer for the inspiring true story of “Irish” Micky Ward—a heart-and-soul warrior who overcame the odds to make history in the ring. But that was only part of the tale…

Starting with his first bout at the age of seven, Micky Ward gave as good as he got and left absolutely everything he had in the ring. Quitting was never an option. It was that indomitable spirit that would allow him to overcome the harsh realities that he faced every day.

For it was outside the ring that Ward’s heart would be most needed, from witnessing his idolized older half brother Dicky’s fall from grace, to dealing with his wildly dysfunctional—if frighteningly loyal—family, to harboring the darkest of secrets, which he has never revealed until now. Micky Ward has faced numerous setbacks and defeats that would have stopped a lesser man, but he has remained a fighter, through and through—both as a professional boxer and as a man who finally found his greatest strength in friendship, family and faith in himself.

5.0 out of 5 stars Warriors Heart 11 Feb 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Totally gripping and a very open and honest account of Micky Wards life. Loved every page and could not put the book down for even 1 minute. Normally in a book you get one or two chapters which are a little boring but every page will keep your full attention.

5.0 out of 5 stars The real story of Micky Ward 1 April 2013
By John W. Matney - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
Micky and Joe did a great job in telling the story of The Fighter. As a boxing autobiography it's in the top 5, up there with Sugar Ray Robinson's and Jake Lamotta.

Micky Ward was always one of my most favorite fighters to watch. This book takes you through his life growing up in Lowell, Mass. It is great to see a story about your everyday guy gaining success in the cut throat business of professional boxing.

5.0 out of 5 stars I could not put this book down ! 10 Sep 2012
By Joe Stagner - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I'm long time fan of Mickey Ward since I saw him fight a gym mate of mine some in 1986 ! There is no truer working class role model than Micky Ward. This book is better than "Irish Thunder" and better than the movie "The Fighter".

It's Mickey Ward as he is, thinks and feels - in his own words. I started reading at midnight on a Friday night and couldn't put it down until I was finished.

Not only is Micky Ward's life story a true tale of triumph but this book is a fantastic read. Griping, fun, and easy to read.

Micky Ward is a true inspiration.

Everyone, boxing fan or not, should read this book !
