Overview

With the success of the critically-acclaimed, Academy Award-winning film “The Fighter,” the world stood up and cheered for the inspiring true story of 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…

 

Now, in his own words, “Irish” Micky Ward tells his inspirational life story as only he can.

 

From his first bout at the age of seven, Micky Ward was known first and foremost for giving as good as he got, and for leaving absolutely everything he had in the ring. When he fought, quitting was never an option. It was that indomitable spirit that would allow him to survive, battle against, and overcome the harsh realities that he faced every day of his life.

 

For it was outside the ring that Ward’s heart would be most needed, from witnessing his idolized older half-brother Dicky fall from grace, to dealing with his wildly dysfunctional—if frighteningly loyal—family, to the darkest of secrets that he has never revealed until now, and the numerous setbacks and defeats that would have stopped a lesser man. Micky Ward 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

 

From the rough streets of Lowell, Massachusetts, to the blood and sweat of the international fight game, to the bright lights and adulation of Hollywood, this is the rousing, moving, tragic, and humorous story of the one and only Micky Ward.

    Excellent Book

    This was a great read, especially for a boxing fan and fan of "Irish Micky Ward." It was really nice to hear about his fights, from his standpoint, and, also learn more of what wasn't shown about his family and upbringing in the movie, "The Fighter."

    Excellent and compelling story

    Better than the "The Fighter". The book is usually better than the movie because it goes into more detail. This book does not disappoint. It will keep your attention right to the end.
