Mickey Rourke by KO

Mickey Rourke hadn't competed in a professional boxing match since 1994 prior to his bout with Elliot Seymour on Friday in Moscow, but the Academy Award-nominated actor still managed to win via knockout.

The 62-year-old star of The Wrestler went up against a 29-year-old opponent and knocked him down twice before the referee stopped the fight, according to The Associated Press (via Yahoo).

While some might maintain that the fight itself was shameful, Rourke can hold his head high knowing that he took care of business regardless of his opponent's quality, or lack thereof. Seymour had a 1-9 professional record coming into the bout against Rourke.
