Boston Marathon Bombing – Micky Ward: Dead Suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev Was No Friend of Mine

0419-micky-ward-tamerlan-boston-1by TMZ – 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.
