Mickey Rourke Knocks Seymour Out: Chakhkiev Wins

By Alexey Sukachev

Moscow, Russia - In a non-sanctioned bout with rounds that were less than three minutes long, 62-year-old Actor Mickey Rourke (7-0-2, 5KOs) returned to the ring for the first time since a 1994 draw with matchmaker Sean Gibbons, and he looked every bit his age in knocking out 29-year-old Elliot Seymour (0-10, 1KO). Rourke was old and slow in the fight and barely threw anything, but Seymour did almost nothing in the entire contest but walk around. In the second Seymour went down from a bodyshot and went down a second time from a bodyshot for the count.


European cruiserweight champion Rakhim Chakhkiev (21-1, 16 KOs) survived some
scares in the first round of his fight versus Brazilian import Jackson Junior (15-2, 13 KOs), before stopping his opponent at 2:26 of the fourth round. Junior was down after a solid right hand by the WBC #1, IBF #5 and WBC/WBA #11 rates Russian but the stoppage come a bit too early.


In his grand arrival, it took WBC/IBF #13 Russian knockout artist Dmitry Kudryashov (16-0, 16 KOs) just 19 seconds to destroy ex-WBC cruiserweight king Juan Carlos Gomez (55-4, 40 KOs). WBA/WBC #8 Gomez was knocked out with a left-right combo losing his WBA International cruiserweight title.


Moving up one weight division, WBA #4 lightweight Eduard Troyanovskiy (20-0, 17 KOs) completely annihilated Columbian import Jose Augustin Feria in the very first round.

Troyanovskiy dropped Feria with his solid punch - a major right hand to the whiskers. Feria was rocked down several times after that before being dropped down face-first after another monstrous right hand of the Russian kayo artist.

Eduard is the new WBA I/C light welterweight champion. Feria is now 16-2-1, 12 KOs. Time of stoppage was 2:52.


2012 London light heavyweight gold medalist Egor Mekhontsev (7-0, 6 KOs) went the distance for the first time in his professional career, overcoming rugged Ugandan Joey Vegas (17-10-1, 10 KOs) with a workmanlike unanimous decision in an unspectacular contest. Scores were: 80-72 (twice) and 80-73.


WBO #2 super featherweight Andrey Klimov (19-1, 9 KOs) continued his road to an occasional title shot with a dominating unanimous decision over Mexican champion Gabino Cota (16-3-1, 14 KOs).

Cota was no match to sharp but light-punching Klimov, who almost stopped the rugged Mexican in rounds six and eight. However, the Russian still lacks one finishing touch to get the job done.

Scores were: 100-89, 100-91, and 99-92 - for Klimov, who retained his WBO I/C title.


Continuing his road of terror, ex-kick boxer Sergey "Samurai" Lipinets (5-0, 4 KOs) effectively stopped previously unbreakable Filipino Ernie Sanchez (14-6-1, 5 KOs) in round eight.

Lipinets was very effective with sudden uppercuts and left hooks, very preserved in his defense and looked solid offensively. Sanchez was being repeatedly hurt in rounds six and seven before succumbing to a pair of left hooks by Lipinets in the eighth.

Lipinets is now the WBC Silver International welterweight titlist. Time was 0:40.


Former amateur star Dmitry Bivol looked spectacular in the sixth-round stoppage of Uruguayan veteran Jorge Rodriguez Olivera (25-11, 10 KOs). Pro debutant Bivol dominated every minute of every round, continuously rocking Olivera with left hooks to the chin and to the body, before putting him down in the final round. Olivera hurt his right leg and was unable to continue. Time was 1:44.


Making his pro debut, former European amateur champion Sergey Kuzmin made a short work of previously undefeated Ugandan Nicolas Buule (3-1, 3 KOs). Time was 1:47 of round one.

Worst staged fight I have ever seen. some 0-10 fat slob vs. a 62 year old gassed Rourke who could barely stand. That quit on his knee had even the referee laughing... Atleast Rourke didn't have his plastic face busted…

Rourke should take the Freddie flintoff fight next, would be a good stylistic match-up.
