Boxing legend George Foreman mourns daughter Freeda, 42, in emotional message

Boxing legend George Foreman mourns daughter Freeda, 42, in emotional message

The bout drew attention because she was fighting at a time when the daughters of her father's rivals, Muhammad Ali and Joe Frazier, were also pursuing careers in the ring, ESPN reported.

Beyond a shadow of a doubt, Freeda George Foreman was a precocious child who could easily be called a tomboy, having grown up with five brothers and four sisters. Police, who are waiting on a report from the coroner's office to confirm a cause of death, say foul play is not suspected.

It is sad news as Freeda is survived by a husband, two daughters, three grandchildren, and 11 siblings.

According to TMZ, Foreman's body was discovered by a family member at her home near Houston, Texas. "She's With her maker now", he added. "Just 1 more day I wanted okay 1 more year [1] more decade". She stayed in the sport that made her dad famous as a promoter, but never fought again.

He continued: "Rather than express the usual ritual contrition, how about this: I'm on television every weeknight for an hour". UltraViolet argued that Carlson's comments showed extreme sexism and that he defended domestic abusers and child rapists.

George, who was two-time heavyweight champ, was not happy about his daughter's decision at the time - he even reportedly offered her $15,000 not to box professionally. Per her LinkedIn page, Freeda was studying studied criminal justice at Sam Houston State.

George Foreman was a heavyweight boxing champion in the 1970s and 1990s and later gained fame as the spokesman for the George Foreman Grill.

According to iMDb, Freeda had appeared in a number of TV documentaries, including 2002's Relatively Speaking: George Foreman, and in 2004, Beyond the Glory and 10 Things Every Guy Should Experience.

All of his sons are named George "so they would always have something in common", as he once said.
