Like her dad, Freeda was a boxer before George reportedly paid her not to follow in his footsteps. Freeda’s boxing career only lasted for two years (2000-2001), in which she put together a 5-1 record, including three knockouts, before leaving the ring for good. She stayed in the sport that made her dad famous as a promoter, but never fought again.

Freeda Foreman was one of seven daughters and 12 children overall from George’s four marriages. In addition to her 11 siblings, Freeda is survived by her husband, their two daughters, three grandchildren, and her parents.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the Foreman family during this time.
