Lowell boxing legend "Irish" Micky Ward won a major legal battle yesterday when a Lowell District Court judge found him innocent of assault and battery in a confrontation last year with his stepfather-in-law.

Don't you think that maybe he didn't deserve to be harassed. Just because he has money and is tough people try to mess with him. After what he's gone through as a person I don't lame him for his reaction to some little person that anyone of us would drop if he was persistent and got in our face enough. I'm sure Micky has very small tolerance for bullshit.

So, husband punched stepfather. Wife is on a destructive path. Think maybe stepfather has something to do with wife's destructive path?? Think maybe this shallow gene pool white trash did much worse than punch Charlene??? I've read in several places that stepfather has been trying to mess with Micky and Charlene for years. And I'd bet he messed with her as a child. Even if he wasn't physically or sexually abusive, he influenced her as a child. If she's a mess, he had at least something to do with it. If Micky were a hot-headed, angry guy, his wife's stepfather wouldn't be the only person trying to cash in on it.

Well I am not from Lowell and I know who Micky Ward and D. Eklund are. It kills some people that others do better than they do. I can tell you this for sure, My husband is military and puts up with no bullshit what so ever. If my father disrespected him on his land off his land where ever or disrespected me or my children I can say honestly that my husband would probably whip his ass. Granted they have a great relationship and are very close as father in law and son in law should be and they both respect each other in every aspect.... But thats just a real man taking care of real business... A real man will take care of his pride and his family. If you cant do that then you arent a real man.... I dont give one shit if you like what I say or if you dont. I feel sorry for you dumb son of a bitches on here that are pissed off because someone got ahead in life and you didnt. I guess they wanted it more than you did. You got a problem with micky ward then tell him, why the hell you on here hiding behind your computer. Trash talkers are so funny. If micky ward is a nobody then you shouldnt be afraid to tell him personally what you think, right? I can assure you that he isnt afraid of you. I dont know what happened between him and the old man but I know this, people dont just walk around and beat up on people... There had to be a reason. Anyone ever think of that. Ya'll kill me getting on a website and shit talking about other people. Everyone in this country who watches sports or boxing knows who micky ward is so it doesnt matter where they held the trial. I am sure it was a fair trial and that it would have been the same outcome no matter where it was. Ya'll need to grow up and be happy for people that do good in life. Ya'll will always be behind becasue ya'll are to worried about putting someone down. Thats why micky got ahead in life. He was doing him and living his life. He wasnt worried about anyone else in lowell or the rest of this damn world. Ya'll should take lessons.
