Twitter Reacts to George Foreman Challenging Steven Seagal to a Fight

The 68-year-old who was once heavyweight champion of the world in boxing has challenged 65-year-old Seagal to a 10-round match in Las Vegas.

Foreman - the former two-time heavyweight championship boxer and guy responsible for the grill that burned Michael Scott's foot - took to Twitter on Monday to challenge Seagal, the martial arts movie star, to a fight. "10 rounds in Vegas".

The 1968 Olympic gold medallist's tweet led to some Twitter users speculating that Seagal would be able to use weapons as he does in numerous action movies he has starred in, but Foreman was quick to put those rumours to bed.

"No weapons, Hand to hand only".

Foreman had great banter with fans on Twitter, insisting he was serious and believing he could get his famous jab working again to win the fight.

This fighter who at the age of 45 became boxing's oldest ever world heavyweight champion, finally retired from the ring in 1997 after his defeat to Shannon Briggs. He believed Floyd Mayweather might like to promote it and that it could be a pay-per-view bout.

Foreman's sudden urge to fight Seagal may stem from his recent comments about NFL players kneeling during the national anthem last week, calling the pregame protests "outrageous", "a joke", and "disgusting".

Seagal became a Russian citizen past year and is know for being besties with Putin. Foreman said he'll just box while Seagal can apparently do whatever he wants.
