George Foreman became boxing’s oldest heavyweight champion when he was 45. Now, 26 years later, Foreman said he can envision the record being snatched away by 54-year-old Mike Tyson.

“If he gets in shape like he’s in now, and then gets his timing back, and all the other things fall into place, he can have an opportunity to fight for the title," Foreman, the Hall of Famer, told USA TODAY Sports on Sunday. “If he can be managed right, a champion, the right champion, will come to him. And if the right one comes, he can knock him out."

Foreman’s comments came a day after Tyson returned to the ring 15 years after his last fight. He looked formidable, albeit against 51-year-old Roy Jones Jr.
