George Foreman offered the shock of Steven Seagal in Las Vegas by pushing 70
A new social media post emerged this week when former heavyweight champion George Foreman gave action hero Steven Seagal a fight in Las Vegas.
Foreman, the oldest heavyweight champion of all time, wanted to pit his wits against the “Under Siege” star in a cross-code battle.
Seagal, three years younger than the retired boxer and known for his love of martial arts, could have deployed strikes of any kind had the fight come to fruition against a 69-year-old foreman.
Going public, Foreman said, “Steven Seagal, I challenge you one-on-one. I use boxing. You can use anything. Ten rounds in Las Vegas.

“Big George” made this statement at a time when this kind of fighting was in its infancy. Putting the feelers on a fight like this now, you’d likely have a streaming service somewhere clamoring to stream it.
GEORGE CONTREMAN INNOVATIVE
In 2017, there was an age of innocence surrounding the whole concept. That was until Floyd Mayweather blew up the roof of the exhibitions with Conor McGregor.
Since then, there have been all kinds of unfathomable clashes on the ropes, nothing more than Mayweather versus taking on a YouTuber lacking even basic boxing skills.
