George Michael "Micky" Ward, Jr. (born October 4, 1965), sometimes nicknamed "Irish Micky Ward", is a retired American junior welterweight professional boxer and a former WBU champion from Lowell, Massachusetts. He is widely known for his three fights with Arturo Gatti, as well as from the 2010 feature film based on his career titled The Fighter, in which he is portrayed by Mark Wahlberg. Micky is the younger half-brother of Dicky Eklund and son of Alice Eklund-Ward. His wife is Charlene (Fleming) Ward.
Ward was a three-time New England Golden Gloves champion boxer who turned pro in 1985, winning his first fourteen fights.However, his career leveled off, and after losing four consecutive fights in 1990/91, Ward took a hiatus from boxing.
Ward was successful in his return, winning his first nine fights, and won the WBU's Intercontinental Light Welterweight Title in a fight against Louis Veader.He defended the belt once, in a rematch against Veader. Ward earned a 1997 IBF Light Welterweight Championship fight against champion Vince Phillips, but did not win the championship, as the fight was stopped in the third round due to cuts, and Phillips was awarded the bout via TKO. One year later, Ward again would come up short in a title fight, as he lost a 12-round decision against Zab Judah.
In 2000, Ward traveled to London to take on the WBU Light Welterweight Champion, Shea Neary, and earned a TKO in the eighth round to win the WBU title. Ward, however, never defended the title, and split his next four fights. His ten-round decision victory over Emanuel Augustus (then known as Emanuel Burton) was voted The Ring magazine's 2001 Fight of the Year.
