Mickey Rourke may hold boxing bout in Russia
Hollywood star Mickey Rourke might again return to boxing next year as he ponders of holding a bout in Russia’s Urals, his agent Vadim Kornilov said.
"We are currently in work on organizing a bout for Mickey in the Urals. This may happen in February or March next year," TASS cited him as saying.
The 64-year-old actor, screenwriter and retired boxer, whose professional boxing career boasts a record of eight bouts (six victories with four knock-out wins and two draws), is currently training for his return to the ring at the Wild Card Boxing Club in Los Angeles.
In November of 2014, Rourke defeated 29-year-old American Elliot Seymour in an exhibition boxing match at a Moscow concert hall in what was the Hollywood actor’s return to the ring at the age of 62 for the first time in the past 20 years.
