Mark Wahlberg will apparently do anything to have another hit on his hands.

The former Funky Bunch bandleader climbed into the ring in a Boston gym on Thursday to film a scene for his upcoming film The Fighter, in which Wahlberg plays former world light welterweight champion “Irish” Mickey Ward. Wahlberg was re-creating the 1997 bout between Ward and Alfonso Sanchez, which originally occurred in Ceasar’s Palace in Las Vegas.

Hmm; apparently, what happens in Vegas doesn’t actually stay in Vegas after all.
