Mickey Rourke wins boxing match as opponent takes a dive

Friday November 28th, 2014


Actor and occasional boxer Mickey Rourke made his return to the ring on Friday at the age of 62. 

Rourke fought Elliot Seymour, a 29-year-old from California with a 1-9 professional record. Seymour did not appear to be particularly invested in winning the match.

The bout was supposed to go five rounds but didn't even go two. Rourke knocked his opponent down twice with a few soft punches and the referee put a stop to the farce.
