George Foreman’s exploits in the ring are well-known to sports fans. He knocked out Joe Frazier in January 1973 to become the heavyweight champion, eventually losing to Muhammad Ali in October 1974 in “The Rumble in the Jungle.”

Freeda briefly followed in her father’s legacy. She fought six times between June 2000 and November 2001. She finished 5-1 with three knockouts as a professional.
