The Fighter


Irish Micky Ward.
His fists were a gift from the lord.
He weathered each punch with defiance.
Now he'll donate his brain to science.

    This is about the guy that the movie was based on. He took many brutal beatings during his career. He recently agreed to donate his brain to the Boston University school of medicine. For the study of brain trauma when he shuffles off this mortal coil
