"Recently the film star Mickey Rourke, while on location in Argentina, met Monzon and took a crew with him to film the occasion for posterity. Rourke's reputation in the entertainment business is that of a hard man, but either he believed his own publicity, or being a tough guy in showbiz wasn't enough for him. He won some novice professional fights, and appeared to consider this a common bond with Monzon. He felt moved to swap boxing stories with the former champion - and eventually persuaded him to take part in a sparring session in the prison gym. Filmed, of course.

It was a brief, extremely nasty, and embarrassing experience for the actor. A single blow left him unconscious on his back. The film crew sold the stills."


I'd love to find some pics of this.

From what I could find the Monzon episode sounds like possable bs.
Rourke never talked **** about Toney or Duran. He said Toney beat his ass for 2 yrs. strait. Duran was in his final yrs and he worked with Duran for one yr.and he tough Rourke a lot of tricks of the trade and was much more easy going in sparring than Toney who beat the **** out of him every day.

I remember it being reported shortly after it happened in the 90's and the story being repeated via another source in my gym. I heard these stories before Monzon died... not some posthumous bs...

Wasn't very nice out of Monzon to spark out a guy who came to visit him.
