Tyson, who retired from the sport in 2005, returned to the ring at Staples Center in Los Angeles to battle 51-year-old former four division world champion Roy Jones Jr. to an eight round draw. The rounds were slimmed down to two-minutes and the boxers used 12-ounce gloves.
The 54-year-old Tyson performed much better than many experts had anticipated.
And the fight generated a mountain of interest - as the event reportedly generated around 1.2 million pay-per-view purchases - one of the biggest boxing PPV figures in years.
Tyson intends to push forward with his in-ring comeback, by staging more exhibition bouts.
Foreman, a two-time heavyweight champion, believes Tyson - with a few more fights - is capable to taking on just about anyone at the weight.
"If he gets three more exhibitions like that, at that level, I would even back him in challenging any title contender, even a champion," Foreman told TMZ Sports.
"If the right situation arrived, Mike Tyson could be in for a good title shot ... and [with three more] of these exhibitions, he can beat some of these guys who can be champion out there.
"I was on the edge of my seat [watching that fight between Tyson and Jones]... I did exhibitions with Sonny Liston, I've seen [Muhammad Ali] do exhibitions, but I've never seen one that exciting, never."
Under the right set of rules, Foreman would back Tyson against the best of the best - especially if the contest is fought under two-minute rounds.
"If you go 8 two-minute rounds, I'd back Tyson," Foreman said ... "10 two-minute rounds, I'd back Tyson!"
