Former Heavyweight Champion of the World George Foreman has taken to Twitter to challenge actor/martial arts expert Steven Seagal to a fight!

Yes, really!

The 68-year-old former boxer took to social media where he challenged Seagal (65) to a ten round fight in Las Vegas.

According to the rules of Foreman’s challenge, Seagal, a 7th-dan black belt in Aikido, would be able to use any fighting style he liked, as long as no weapons were involved.

Quite why the challenge has been made, I don’t know, but after the recent ‘super fight’ between Floyd Mayweather Jr and Conor McGregor, I guess anything is possible.

A fight between two pensioners on PPV though, would anyone buy it? Probably!

Time will tell if Seagal accepts but if he does, we could be in store for one of the strangest events of all time!
