Resolved Question: How highly do you rate
And just how successful do you think he could have been if he had concentrated solely on his boxing career instead of acting?
Do you think his boxing career was entirely legit?
Who do you think would have been a great opponent for him?
Finally, what is your favourite Mickey Rourke film?
Mine would have to be Angel Heart. I agree with each of your analysis in regards to the monumentous potential Mickey Rourke had as a fighter. When I ask of how successful he could've been, what my question is actually referring to is how successful a boxer he could have become had he never went into the acting business,instead choosing to only focus on his boxing career from the very beginnig. You've all greatly answered this anyway by speaking of the potential he had and the quality of character he was.
As you all know, he was always a boxer before he ever became an actor (one of the best actors of all time, in my opinion. Angel Heart proved his talent could contend with legends such as De Niro)
He had a relatively short but, nevertheless, impressive amateur career, racking up 20 wins, 17 by knockout and 6 defeats.Having been stopped only once, disqualified 3 times, and losing 2 decisions. His amateur boxing career has garnered a sort of mythical status. He had a reputation for being a tough, hard-hitting, very durable slugger with an animalistic approach to his attack. It is also reported that during his amateur career he scored 12 consecutive first round knockouts. This all sounds very promising.
When he turned professional I certainly agree that he was past his prime. I've watched a few of his fights (there is not much footage available). He displayed a very scrappy, rough n' tough style, highly entertaining. However, his striking was rarely ever crisp and his movement at times was awkward. But like you said, Knight,"the way it happened we all know he did not have much chances really!"
When I speak of the legitimacy of his boxing career I'm really refering to one fight in particular. I do not doubt the legitimacy of his boxing career as a whole. There is no question about that.
I've seen him go to war in the ring, and he's got the battlescars to prove it, with the facial reconstruction and what not.
The fight I question the legitimacy of is his victory over Darrell Miller. Watch the fight and then tell me you don't also question just how legit Mickey Rourke's victory really is: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bj3rpr_Vk2U
By the way, those are some great movies you've all mentioned. I'm surprised, since this being a boxing forum, not one of you has spoke of Homeboy. It's definitely a very underrated movie. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ySKgtxWv0fE
