Mickey Rourke's Opponent BANNED From Boxing in NJ After Fix Confession

Mickey Rourke's Opponent -- BANNED From Boxing in New Jersey


Elliot Seymour -- the boxer who admits throwing his fight against Mickey Rourke -- will be banned from getting in the ring again in New Jersey, and most likely in California too.

TMZ Sports broke the story ... Seymour copped to intentionally fixing the fight in their November match and got $15k for going down in the 2nd round.

Now, boxing officials in Cali and NJ tell us there's no way they would sanction another one of his fights. Commissioner Larry Hazzard  Sr. of the NJ State Athletic Control Board says, "He admitted that he took a dive. I would not issue him a license based off that admission."

Hazzard added, "I don't think he's deserving. It's a no-brainer."

An official from the CA State Athletic Commission says if Seymour ever had the gall to apply for a boxing license in his state ... "It'd be very difficult to imagine ever sanctioning" a fight for him.

As for Rourke -- Seymour claims Mickey was unaware of the fix ... therefore, neither commission could speak about his future boxing eligibility.
