Mickey Rourke's an odd sort, isn't he?

At 62, you'd hardly think it was an appropriate time to get back into the ring and start boxing again. Then again, Rourke has never been about what's appropriate.

The Wrestler star jumped into the ring in Russia to take on Elliot Seymour, who's 29. That's right - thirty-three years younger than the guy from 9 1/2 Weeks.

Rourke, who fought in the Super-Middleweight division during the 90's, looked lean and ready when he stepped into the ring with a cowboy hat and gold gloves. Of course he did.

The match-up, however, was over almost as soon as it began. Seymour moved slowly and Rourke seemed to be almost taunting him.

We don't want to call this a fix, but it clearly was. Rourke landed a fairly decent kidney shot in the second round that dropped Seymour pretty quickly.

Take a look.

Even the Russian commentators sounded like they're chuckling at the brazen staging of it all.

Here's a match-up - Rourke versus Stallone. The winner takes on Hulk Hogan. Or better yet, a tag-team match with Hogan, Stallone, Rourke and Rowdy Roddy Piper. With the whole thing soundtracked by Whitesnake.
