At age 62, undefeated high-profile actor Mickey Rourke (7-0-2, 5 KOs) returned to the ring for the first time since 1994.

... And he didn't disappoint.

The finish came in Round 2.

After flooring his foe moments earlier, Rourke dropped 29-year-old Elliot Seymour again after planting his feet and unleashing a wicked right hook to the body.

The young man crumbled to the canvas and did not beat the count.

Although Seymour entered the bout with a modest 1-9 record, he'd been stopped inside the distance only once.

Can the 62 year old Rourke orchestrate more knockouts?

How far can he go, especially against the 20 and 30-somethings of professional boxing?
