George Forman has a tentative deal of 20 million to fight one more time providing he could reach his desired weight of 225lbs. The fight will mark the 30th anniversary of his 'Rumble in the Gungle' fight with Ali. No details on the exact date, place, or opponent. He would like it to be in his home town, Houston.

Also in boxing news, Tyson has managed to squander over 200 million dollars in 15 years. He is down to his last $6,000 plus assets according to a bankruptcy report.

Tyson vs. Forman? Who will be the first to take a chunk out of the other guy. My money is on George.

Always a great sign of a pure athlete when they struggle to reach their desired weight of 225! :lol:

Yep, you can just be guaranteed A Class competition in that fight.

George...it'd be a battle though, as long as Tyson kept his mouth shut. :D

Well I think it's safe to say he won't be fighting Ali, unless it were shadow-boxing.

Boxing is a joke, particularly the heavyweight division. If I wanted to see an overweight 60-year old fight a mentally unstable bankrupt criminal, I’d go to the local cowboy saloon on a Saturday night.

The middleweights are a lot of fun to watch; Shane Mosley, Arturro Gatti, Whitaker, etc.
And Roy Jones is incredible. It's a shame he wants to fight heavyweights because none of the light heavies can compete with him.
That fight with Ruiz was tedious to watch.

But I agree, the heavyweights are crap.

If he is, he'd better bring his grill, cuz he'll need to hit the other guy with something harder than his fist... :roll:

I wish George would reconsider this. He was a great champion once, hate to see him make a fool of himself - he surely doesn't need the money, like he did when he came out of retirement and fought Holyfield in '91.

I am kind of hoping for a Tyson vs Gary Payton match up. Foreman gets to grill the winner. :D
