MOSCOW, April 11. /TASS/. Famous Hollywood star Mickey Rourke might again return to boxing as he ponders of holding a bout in Russia’s Urals city of Yekaterinburg, his agent told TASS on Monday.

The agent, however, did not say when the bout of Rourke was likely to take place and who would be his possible opponent.

The 63-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, the United States.

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.

During Rourke’s bout in the Russian capital in 2014, Seymour was down on the floor twice in the second round before the fight was stopped by one of the referees.

Born in the state of New York in 1952, Rourke, a 2008 Golden Globe award winner for his role in motion picture Wrestler, took to boxing at the age of 12, when he won his first bout in flyweight (112-pound or 51 kg) weight division.
