Micky Ward - Dickie Eklund UK Tour Promo Video Released
Nina C’s Touch Glove Promotions today released the promotional video for the upcoming May Bank Holiday weekend mini UK tour by the real life subjects of the box office hit movie ‘The Fighter’, ‘Irish’ Micky Ward and his half brother Dickie Eklund.
Micky, who was played by Mark Wahlberg in the movie, has stated that he is relishing returning to the UK, the first time being when he challenged, and beat, Liverpool’s Shea ‘The Shamrock Express’ Neary, at Olympia in Kensington in March 2000, to capture the World Boxing Union Light Welterweight title.
Whilst without doubt a magnificent victory, especially so when you consider Neary had successfully defended his title five times since beating Darryl Tyson to lift the title in October 1996, Micky is better known as one of the protagonists, the other the late Arturo Gatti, in the greatest trilogy of fights of all time.
Incidentally Mark Wahlberg, accompanied by Micky and Dickie, stated at the Spike TV Guys Choice Awards last year “We left out the Arturo Gatti fights for a reason... because that’s for ‘Fighter 2.” Hopefully this means the sequel should be hitting the silver screen in the very near future.
That aside, back to Micky and Dickie’s upcoming visit, whilst here in the UK the boys will be undertaking three ‘Audience With’ appearances, the first takes place at the Hilton Metropole in London, on Saturday the 5th May, then the pair will make the short trip to the Crown Plaza in Maldon, Essex for their second appearance on Sunday 6th May and then finally the boys will be at the Priestfield Suite in Gillingham, Kent on Monday 7th May.
In addition Micky and Dickie will also be visiting the famous TRAD TKO Boxing Gym deep in the heart of London’s East End, Brentwood ABC in Essex and O’Neill’s Gym in Margate Kent, where they will meet local underprivileged kids, who will have the opportunity to work out with the legends and, hopefully, generate some fundraising for the OneLife UK charitable organisation.
Tickets priced, VIP - £120 (includes photograph with Micky Ward and Dickie Eklund and as well as front row seats and a meal) and Gold - £100 (which also includes a meal) are available on line at www.tkoboxoffice.com and www.touchglovepromotions.co.uk or call Touch Glove Promotions Office 01277-410167 10-6pm.
