The boxer who lost a fight to Hollywood star Mickey Rourke in Russia last weekend (30Nov14) has accused the actor's representatives of failing to pay him his full fee of $15,000 (£9,375).

Elliott Seymour claims he agreed to step into the ring with The Wrestler star for the big sum, but only received $10,000 (£6,250) after he was knocked down twice in the second round of the fight in Moscow, prompting the referee to stop the match before the bell.

The fighter, who, at 29, is more than half Rourke's age, is now seeking full payment, but he insists the fee had nothing to do with reports suggesting he was promised the money to throw the match.

He previously blamed his loss on a lack of training, and he now tells Tmz.com, "People can say whatever they want... If you've never been in a fight before in your life, you have no idea what it feels like to get hit."

Despite the financial issue, Seymour reveals he would be willing to challenge Rourke again, if the actor wants a rematch.

Rourke's representatives have yet to comment on the alleged payment problem.
