George Foreman was the two-time heavyweight champion of the world, an HBO ringside commentator, the world’s most successful small-appliance salesman, a small-town preacher, and the father of 12 children, including five sons — all named George.
We connected with two of Big George’s sons, George Jr. and George IV, for a candid, revealing family portrait — the moment they realized their dad was world famous … whether the Foreman name led to schoolyard fights … watching their dad as a playground basketball player … what it was like watching their sister, Freeda, as a professional boxer … what kind of night it was for the family when Dear Ol’ Dad knocked out undefeated Michael Moorer to regain the heavyweight crown … and much more.
