"There's gonna be a day when he's not president and we're going to bump into each other and you're going to feel me… a left hook for pals."
It comes as the acting legend told Piers yesterday that "all this sh** is not right" as he struggled to put into words the hell Putin has unleashed.
He blasted: “I wish some kind of little bell would ring in his head or his heart and he’d wake up and just stop all this sh**.
"I don't understand what he wants… all that sh** is not right.
"They made me think he is doing really terrible, bad things."
Visibly emotional, Rourke said: "I saw an image of a man who was looking at a ditch… and I put myself in his position… he was looking for his brother."
But it all became too much for Mickey who told of one particular image that "bothered me the most".
He explained it was an image of a man left with only a little grey kitten after a Russian strike butchered "five family members" and flattened his home.
Rourke choked up as he recounted the horror images and put his sunglasses on to cover the tears as they streamed down his face.
Piers probed Rourke over a visit paid to Putin in 2014 which saw him sport a t-shirt with the tyrants face emblazoned on it.
But actor was quick to set the record straight, slamming: "That was 2014 ok, I just want to make that clear."
He explained how he visited Russia with a raft of other entertainers from the US, including actress Sharon Stone.
It was part of an entertainment event thrown by the Russian president.
On the trip, Rourke told how Putin took him to a children's cancer hospital in St Petersburg.

It was here he said that he saw a side to Putin that was "genuinely concerned" and "empathetic".
Pushed on how that Putin compares to the one who has launched a bloodthirsty invasion of Ukraine killing thousands of kids, the former boxer said it "blows my mind".
