Tim Throckmorton

Whether you’re a sports fan or a movie buff, you can appreciate the Oscar- nominated movie “The Fighter.” The real-life “fighter”, Micky Ward, was in Bangor speaking to students at Husson University this past week about the movie. Ward is played by Mark Wahlberg, someone Micky has become good friends with. The movie is based on the story of his life and the struggles of his brother, Dicky Eklund, also a former boxer. Micky really enjoys telling his story because he thinks it’s the perfect tale of perserverance. Ward also shared his thoughts on the boxing world today.
