A Warrior's Heart
The True Story of Life Before and Beyond the FighterBook - 2012
"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 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'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. 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"-- Provided by publisher.
