Mickey Rourke is returning to his first love, boxing. In a bout that sounds appropriately Rourkian, the 62-year-old actor is set to fight 29-year-old Elliot Seymour in Moscow next month. Rourke last boxed professionally during his lost years in the ‘90s, a stint that turned his face into what it is today. This whole thing sounds a lot like the plot of that sports movie from a few years ago, Rocky Balboa.
