Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Richard "Dicky" Eklund (born May 9, 1957 in Lowell, Massachusetts) is a former professional boxer in the Welterweight division and is a former New England Welterweight Champion. He is known as "The Pride of Lowell." Eklund is also the brother of former WBU World Champion Micky Ward. The 2010 biopic The Fighter is based on the two brothers' fall and rise to the boxing title. His most notable fight was on July 18, 1978, against Sugar Ray Leonard at the Hynes Memorial Auditorium in Boston, Massachusetts. He went the distance against Leonard, who eventually won the fight by unanimous decision, after being knocked down by Eklund in the seventh round. Eklund's fighting career spanned 10 years from 1975-1985, during which he compiled a professional career record of 19 wins, including four by knockout, and 10 losses.show more
