Making the rounds
Boxer “Irish’’ Micky Ward is a busy man. Capitalizing on his newfound fame following “The Fighter,’’ Ward and his half-brother Dicky Eklund are on a national speaking tour. (They played to a packed house at Northeastern the other night.) Ward, who is played in David O. Russell’s Oscar-nominated film by Mark Wahlberg, is very much in demand these days. The other night, he stopped by Showcase Cinemas in Revere to support Johnny Hickey, whose first film, “Oxy-Morons,’’ is screening there for two more weeks.
