Actor Mickey Rourke is tough

I want to congratulate 62-year old Mickey Rourke on his knockout victory over Elliot Seymour, 29, in Russia in his recent return to boxing after a 20-year layoff.

Rourke, a Miami Beach Senior High School alumni, proved that age is not a barrier to accomplishing one’s goals.

I lost to him in an amateur boxing match in Miami in the early 1970s. He was tough as nails then, seems he still is.
