Boston Marathon Bombing

Ex-Champ Micky Ward:

Dead Suspect Was No Friend of Mine

Exclusive Details

0419-micky-ward-tamerlan-boston
Legendary fighter Micky Ward wants to make it clear to the world ... he has NO relationship with dead bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev -- despite a photo which reportedly shows them arm-in-arm.

Micky's agent tells TMZ he's been hammered with calls ever since the 2006 photo was posted on a local Boston news site.

We can't confirm it's actually Tamerlan in the photo, but it sure looks like him.  Nonetheless, a rep for Micky -- whose life was chronicled in "The Fighter" -- says, "It was just like any random person who came up to Micky and asked him for a picture."

The rep adds the former New England Golden Gloves champ had no professional or personal association with Tsarnaev.

As we previously reported ... Tsarnaev had high hopes about making the US Olympic boxing team.

By the way, the news site has removed the photo ... but won't say why.

It sort of looks more like the younger brother in the picture. Since3 it was taken 7 years ago, the younger one could only have been 12. The older one would have been 14. It is hard to know who tht is, but Micky Ward doesn't look very friendly anyway. He looks like a very mean guy.


I guess he made the papers take down that picture. I think it is kind of petty. A lot of nice people were friends with the brothers. The wife of Tamerlyn seems like a nice middle class girl. She even converted to Islam for him. Then apparently she left him to live with her parents and they have a 3 year old daughter.


Some Irish can't stand for a second to be associated with someone not of their social taste. They are some of the most virulently racist people.

It is pretty clear that is it is Black Hat, and that it was just one of those random celeb pictures.

Give me a break......Ward allowed thousands of pics to be taken with himself. This was random and to say Mickey Ward had anything to do with this guy is just plain moronic. Give it a break.....you people need to get a G>>Damn life.
