Legendary heavyweight champion George Foreman, who returned to the ring after a ten-year hiatus in the late 80s of the last century, was able to become the oldest world champion in heavyweight history as a result of his comeback. According to Foreman, it was then much more difficult for him than for Mike Tyson, who returned solely for the sake of exhibition fights.
“Tyson returns in an exhibition fight, after which there will hardly be any consequences. I wish I had the privilege of such a comeback.
I came back and participated in real battles that meant something. I hadn’t fought for ten years and then made a comeback and said, “I’m back to be the world champion again.” Tyson returns to show combat, so it won’t be that difficult for him.
I think Mike will have problems against Jones because Roy has speed. Even at his age, he will be faster than Tyson. When you haven’t been in a fight for so long, it will take you a while to get used to it and figure out what to do, “George Foreman told Yahoo Sports.
