Shirtless Mark Wahlberg Is Ready For A Fight

Even a bloodied Mark Wahlberg can look hot.

The cast of the upcoming film, The Fighter, continued their hard work on set this afternoon, July 14, 2009, in Massachusetts. Christian Bale, looked alarmingly thin in his role as drug addicted trainer and brother to Mark Wahlberg’s character Mickey Ward, who appeared severely bloodied and bruised on set today.

Sugar Ray Leonard was also spotted near the film trailers. Bale’s character, Dickie Ecklund, maintained a short boxing career highlighted by his loss via decision to Sugar Ray Leonard in 1978. Melissa Leo is also shown on set, but we’re not sure who she’s playing in the film.
