A look at Mark Wahlberg as a boxer has been shared in some new pictures from "The Fighter". Making their way out via Rogue Movies, most of the photos capture Wahlberg on the ring. At one point, he is seen joined by Christian Bale. Wahlberg's battered face after a game is also previewed in a photo which also features Jack McGee, Melissa Leo and Bale.

The film revolves around the life of professional Irish boxer "Irish" Micky Ward (Wahlberg) and his trainer-brother Dick Eklund (Bale). It will chronicle their early days on the rough streets of Lowell, Mass., through Eklund's battle with drugs and Ward's eventual world championship in London.

Leo is cast as Wahlberg and Bale's on-screen mother. Amy Adams will also join the cast, portraying Charlene, a tough, gritty bartender and former college high-jumper from Massachusetts who ends up dating Ward.

Director Darren Aronofsky was originally touted to helm the project, but when it was stalled he left the project. Later, David O. Russell takes over the directorial job for this drama which is expected to be released sometime within 2010.

I'm glad that someone realizes that if joe "bugsy" ferrell wasn't hurt and stopped training, because they postponed the bout, mickey ward would have lost. He took the fight hurt, a broken rib, and had to lose 6 pounds in one day. So where is bugsys' movie great champion Mickey!!!

In the movie Micky's brother kept saying--Micky could beat Mungin because Micky beat Ferrell and Ferrell beat Mungin. Ferrell was hurt and that is why Micky beat him. And, that is why Micky couldn't beat Mungin. If Ferrell wasn't hurt he would have beat Ward just like he beat Mungin-I cannot believe no one else realized this...

Joe Bugsy Ferrell was the one they set up to lose to Micky Ward. The fight was originally postponed knowing Joey would stop training. They rescheduled the fight and offered Joey more money. He had to lose 6 pounds the day of the fight and he went into the fight with an already bruised rib. Joey Bugsy Ferrell is currently 51 years old, in great shape and lives in the Pittsburgh area.
