Dicky Ecklund (CHRISTIAN BALE) is a former boxing legend that squandered his talents and threw away his shot at greatness. Micky Ward (MARK WAHLBERG), his half brother, is the struggling journeyman boxer who spent his life living in his big brothers shadow.

The Fighter is the inspirational, true story of these two brothers who, against all the odds, come together to train for a historic title bout that will unite their fractured family, redeem their pasts and, at last, give their hard-luck town what its been waiting for: pride. The story unfolds on the gritty, blue-collar streets of Lowell, Mass, where Dicky was once known as The Pride of Lowell having gone the distance with the world champion Sugar Ray Leonard. However, after losing that fight, like the town of Lowell, Dickys fallen on hard times. His boxing days are behind him and his life has become shattered by drug abuse.

Younger brother Micky, meanwhile, has become the familys fighter and fading hope for a champion. But despite all of his work, Mickys career is failing and he loses fight after punishing fight. Dicky and Mickys tougher-than-nails mother, Alice (MELISSA LEO), manages his career and Dicky serves as his highly unreliable trainer. When Mickys latest fight nearly kills him, it looks like it could all be over until his iron-willed new girlfriend, Charlene (AMY ADAMS), convinces him to do the unthinkable: split with his family, pursue his own interests and train without his increasingly volatile and criminal brother.

Now Micky has the chance of a lifetime as he earns a shot at the World Championship. But when his brother and dysfunctional family reenter his life, they must all reconcile their pasts and become more than just a family in name. With Micky and Dicky reunited, this becomes more than just a fight its an all-out comeback for these brothers, their family, and their city. When its over, Micky will have become a World Champion, a Hall of Fame legend, and the new Pride of Lowell.
