Boxing Great George Foreman Challenges Steven Seagal to a One-On-One Open Rules Fight

For some reason, all-time boxing great and electric grill salesman George Foreman took to his Twitter account yesterday to offer up a challenge to martial artist and B-movie actor Steven Seagal. The challenge? The 68-year-old Foreman wants to take on the 65-year-old Seagal in a 10-round pay-per-view fight in Las Vegas.

Attaching a picture of the Under Siege star, Foreman tweeted out that he wants to face Seagal in a fight and Seagal could use whatever discipline he wanted:

From there, Foreman began sussing out the rules of this match as well as who would promote it should Seagal accept:

As for the motivation, Foreman wouldn’t reveal but did say there wasn’t any anger towards Seagal:

One person wanted to know if Foreman would also challenge Jean-Claude Van Damme. It appears that isn’t in the books:

He also told actor Freddie Prinze Jr. that Seagal is “ready” this time for a challenge as he’ll be getting paid some major money:

Foreman, who became the oldest heavyweight champ in history when he defeated Michael Moorer in 1994, hasn’t fought a professional bout in 20 years. As for Seagal, he has gained notice lately for his pro-Putin stance, culminating in a bizarre interview from Russia on British television.
