The Fighter

Factual error: In the home video scenes, which were supposed to have been filmed during the 1970s or earlier, young Mickey Ward is shown wearing gloves bearing the Title Boxing logo. The Title Boxing company wasn't founded until 1998.


Continuity mistake: In the scene where Micky is introducing Charlene to the family and telling Alice & Dicky that he doesn't want to be managed or trained by them anymore in one shot there is a Rock 'em Sock 'em game on the end table, and in the next shot it's not there.


Continuity mistake: Mark Wahlberg's fight statistics shown before final fight are the same as those shown for the previous fight - wins statistic is 20 for both. it should be 21 for the final fight as it was his victory in the previous fight which qualified him for the final fight/championship match.
