George Foreman has ended his latest retirement after only 16 days - claiming he wants to fight one more time in Las Vegas at the age of 50.

The former world heavyweight champion lost a controversial decision to Shannon Briggs on 22 November in Atlantic City, but said he plans to fight at least one more time.

Foreman said yesterday: "In 13 months' time, I'll be 50. I would like to have one last boxing match in Las Vegas - a 50-year-old man enters the ring with a top contender and then calls it quits.

"But someone's really got to give me a good whoopin'. I don't want just anyone to slap me around and abuse me. I want a whoopin'."
