Actor Mickey Rourke, 62, set to revive his boxing career twenty years after hanging up his gloves

Mickey Rourke will revive his boxing career at the age of 62 and take to the ring with a US professional boxer in Moscow this month, Sovetsky Sport sports website reported Wednesday, citing the promoters.

The American actor was quoted as saying by promoters: 'Boxing is a serious part of my life. It taught me respect and determination, patience and concentration. I always dreamed of fighting a match in Russia.'

Rourke is set to fight 29-year-old Elliot Seymour on November 28. They will take to the ring ahead of a match between Russia's Ruslan Provodnikov and Jose Luis Castillo of Mexico, Sovetsky Sport reported.

Any boxing commision that would sanction this fight needs to be looked into. Boxing is a young mans game meant for men in their prime. While Mickey is in fine shape for a 30 year old due to any number of drugs, such as; TRT, HGH, any number of steroids etc he is likely going to get beat so bad he will die.
