The Fighter wins big at the Golden Globes

The Fighter wins big at the Golden Globes

Congratulations to Melissa Leo and Christian Bale for winning Golden Globes awards for their supporting roles in the Micky Ward biopic, The Fighter.

Melissa Leo brought a gritty realism to her role as Alice Ward.   As for Christian Bale, his role as Dicky Eklund was as honest as they come.

This project was obviously a labor of love by Mark Wahlberg and his team and deserves thanks from the boxing community for all their efforts in bringing this film to the screen.

Girlboxing also extends our best wishes to Alice Ward for a speedy recovery.  She was hospitalized on January 12th for a cardiac arrest and is reportedly fighting her way back in the true spirit of her boxer sons.
