The boxing community has warmly welcomed Mike Tyson’s idea of coming out of retirement at the age of 53, as Mike Tyson has already been vocal about wanting to compete in a four-round exhibition fight for charity.  However, former world champion George Foreman believes that Mike Tyson should call off the idea and should not step inside the boxing ring again. This comes to a surprise to a lot of boxing fans since George Foreman himself claimed the world heavyweight title at the age of 45 to become the oldest world champion of ever.
