Former heavyweight champion George Foreman has challenged big screen tough guy Steven Seagal in a real-life fight

LAS VEGAS — Former heavyweight champion George Foreman has challenged big-screen tough guy Steven Seagal to a real-life fight.

The 68-year-old Foreman posted a picture of the 65-year-old Seagal on Twitter on Monday, writing: "I challenge you One on one, I use boxing you can use whatever. 10 rounds in Vegas."

When fans asked Foreman on Twitter why he wanted to fight Seagal, Foreman replied that the martial artist "really can fight" and is big enough to defend himself. Foreman first won the heavyweight title in 1973 and again in 1994.

Seagal made headlines last week for saying that NFL players kneeling during the national anthem were a "joke" and an "outrage."

A representative for Seagal told The Associated Press on Tuesday that the star didn't want to comment on Foreman's offer.
