Miami:

George Foreman has agreed to a tentative $20 million deal to return for a fight celebrating the 30th anniversary of his epic bout with Muhammad Ali.Promoter Don King said he talked with Foreman, 55, last week about the prospects of a fight. "We've got a verbal deal," King said yesterday. "He said he's willing to fight one more time." Foreman hasn't fought since 1997, when he lost his heavyweight title to Shannon Briggs. He has spent his time since as a TV pitchman and boxing commentator. "George said he wants to come back to fight again, so what I'm doing is calling him out," King said. "He has the power, boy, he's rewriting history books." (AP)
