AS a big boxing fan, I was looking forward to seeing The Fighter.
A lot of critics have said it’s the best boxing film since Rocky and I couldn’t agree more. It’s been nominated for seven Oscars and deservedly so.
The film stars Mark Wahlberg as “Irish” Micky Ward, a real-life professional boxer who twice fought for the world light welterweight title in the 90s and became WBU Champion in 2000.
