Mickey Rourke Makes A Boxing Come Back At 62

by Adam Smith

The Hollywood star Mickey Rourke won an exhibition match after 20 years outside the ring. Best known for his roles in Sin City, The Wrestler and The Expendables, Rourke won a boxing match against 29 year-old Elliot Seymour, a former California Golden Gloves champion. Rourke put Seymour to the ground twice in the space of 30 seconds before the referee decided to stop the match.

We’ve got to hand it to the guy, to come back to boxing after 20 years at the age of 62 only to beat a champion 33 younger than you is one hell of a comeback. Oh, and did I mention that he won in the second round? But the worst thing is that he looks in better shape than me and he’s got 40 years on me.
