George Foreman – a boxer, was born on January 10, 1949 in the city of Marshall, Texas. Best known as the 46-year-old champion in the heavyweight category.
When George Foreman defeated Joe Frazer, the boxer was young, thin and very aggressive. In this battle in 1973, Foreman won the title of heavyweight champion. The following year, he lost the title of Muhammad Ali to Zaire. This duel was called “roar in the jungle.”
For a few years, Foreman disappeared from the public eye, devoting himself to the shepherding. But in the 1990’s he returned to the ring, becoming a great fighter. In 1994, he defeated Michael Moorer, regaining the heavyweight title at the age of 45. Subsequent mockery of his commerce made Foreman even more famous.
After losing the fight to Shannon Briggs, Foreman again left the sport. But his glory has not diminished. He earned millions on advertising a kitchen accessory that consumes little fat, called George Foreman Grill. In February 2004, it was stated that the athlete intends to return for another fight. At this time, he was already a 55-year-old grandfather, famous for his fight of 30 years ago with Ali.
Additional information: Foreman became the Olympic champion in boxing in 1968. The boxer has five daughters and five sons, whom he named George: George Jr., George III, George IV, George V, George VI.
