“Irish” Micky Ward has been invited as a special guest to the March 12 clash between middleweight champion Sergio Martinez and Sergei Dzinziruk, which takes place at the MGM Grand at Foxwoods, in Mashantucket, Conn.
Promoter Lou DiBella handled the last four bouts of Ward’s career from 2002-2003, including the trilogy with the late Arturo Gatti.Â All told, Ward had his most lucrative fights under DiBella, netting a reported $3-million in earnings.
â€œLou is a good guy and a man of his word. He promised to make me a lot of money and he did. And all we needed was a handshake deal,â€ said Ward about DiBella.
The card, which also includes a co-featured bout between Andy Lee and Craig McEwan will air on HBO at 10:30 p.m. ET / 7:30 p.m. PT, while tickets are still available via Ticketmaster or the MGM Grand at Foxwoods box office.
