Following last month’s release of The Fighter, I’ve received several questions about Micky Ward (the fighter portrayed in the film). To my surprise, there were plenty of readers here who had not heard of him. If you’ve seen the film but not the real Micky Ward, take a look at the video below. It highlights one of the best rounds ever.
Micky Ward vs. Arturo Gatti
While on the subject of legendary rounds, a legitimate case could be made for several rounds in recent history. Below are just a few that I was able to find on Youtube. If you are a fan of boxing, I’m sure you will enjoy them.
Diego Corrales vs. Jose Luis Castillo
Riddick Bowe vs. Evander Holyfield
Marvin Hagler vs. Thomas Hearns
And for a look back at how the sport used to be, check out this classic footage between Jack Dempsey and Jess Willard. This is one of the most brutal beatings of all time.
