    The Tony Perkins Show – Episode #39 – The Fighter

    Play

    As boxing fans gear up for the May 2nd ‘Mayweather vs. Paquiao’ fight in Las Vegas, Tony and Gary talk to former WBU Light Welterweight Champion MICKY WARD. Ward’s story was made famous in the fantastic 2010 film “The Fighter”, starring Mark Wahlberg as Ward. In a very candid (and surprisingly funny) conversation, Ward talks about his career, including his classic 2002-2003 trilogy of fights with Arturo Gatti, his subsequent friendship with Gatti, and the plans to make a sequel to “The Fighter”. Ward also reveals surprising information on how he’s doing now, and he weighs in on Mayweather/Paquiao.

    Oh, yeah, we almost forgot. Gary and Tony also engage in an uproarious chat about “Blaxploitation” movies, and whether or not there should be a black James Bond. This episode is rated “Not PC”! Enjoy!
