Micky captured both the WBU Intercontinental Light Welterweight title and the WBU Light Welterweight title during his career in boxing. He also won the respect and admiration of many fans worldwide. The song “The Warrior’s Code” by the Punk Rock band Dropkick Murphys is dedicated to Micky Ward and his photograph appears on the cover of the album. Ward’s trilogy with Arturo Gatti, the first of which took place at Mohegan Sun Arena, would become the cover of the video game Fight Night Round 3, on both the PlayStation 2 and XBOX versions of the game. To top it all off, the movie The Fighter starring Mark Wahlberg as Micky Ward and Christian Bale as Dicky Eklund recounts Ward’s climb to fame. Ward is managed by the Prince Marketing Group.
