A look at the early years of boxer "Irish" Micky Ward and his brother who helped train him before going pro in the mid 1980s.
According to Micky Ward, he and Dicky Eklund were to have sizable cameos in a scene together. But Eklund disliked his lines, and refused to say them, so the scene was not filmed. Ward appears briefly as a spectator in the fight against Hernandez.
Why can't you just shut up and be happy for me? I spent the last ten years of my life in bad fights set up by you and Alice. I finally got a good thing going for me and you can't be fuckin' happy for me? Why?
During Micky's fight with Neary, the ringside announcer calls at least two of Micky's punches left hooks, when they are clearly uppercuts.
The real Micky Ward and Dicky Eklund are shown during the end credits.
