Rourke Slams Actors' Boxing Claims
SIN CITY star MICKEY ROURKE has ridiculed claims from actors WILL SMITH and RUSSELL CROWE that they could be professional boxers.
Rourke, who used to be a professional fighter, maintains there is no way the Hollywood stars would stand a chance against serious opposition - despite training as boxers for their roles in ALI and CINDERELLA MAN.
The 49-year-old actor is particularly scathing about Smith's assertion he could last a round with retired heavyweight world champion LENNOX LEWIS.
He says, "No f**king way. Lennox Lewis is a friend of mine, he couldn't last.
"When actors say they could be professional fighters they're full of crap. With a capital K."
