While stationed in Oregon with the Job Corps in 1965, George Foreman became infamous for his belligerent attitude, often picking fights with his fellow trainees. On the verge of expulsion, he met Job Corps supervisor Charles “Doc” Broadus, who saw promise in Foreman’s physical strength. Under the direction of Broadus, Foreman trained to be a boxer.
With a devastating punch, Foreman fought in the amateur boxing circuit, amassing a remarkable record of 16 victories in 18 fights. By the age of 19, he qualified for the U.S. Olympic boxing team. In the 1968 Olympic games in Mexico City, Foreman won the gold medal in the heavyweight class. The following year, he turned professional. During a 1973 historic bout, Foreman captured his first heavyweight championship title by knocking out Joe Frazier in the second round. The following year, Foreman signed an unprecedented $5 million contract to fight Muhammad Ali in Zaire, Africa. Famously billed as the “Rumble in the Jungle,” Ali knocked out Foreman in the eighth round, one of the greatest upsets in boxing history.
In 1977, after losing a 12-round decision to Jimmy Young, Foreman experienced a self-proclaimed religious awakening. He immediately retired from boxing, and was ordained a minister by the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ. In 1984, he started the George Foreman Youth and Community Center.
In 1987, Foreman ended a 10-year absence from the ring by winning the first of what would be 24 straight comeback fights. As a contender for the championship title against Evander Holyfield in 1991, the 40-year-old Foreman lost the bout by decision. In 1994, Foreman recaptured the title in a dramatic victory over the reigning heavyweight champion, 26-year-old Michael Moorer. To date, Foreman holds the notable distinction of being the oldest heavyweight-boxing champion in history.
Currently, Foreman is a boxing commentator for HBO, a bestselling autobiographer, an advice columnist on health issues, and a pitchman for the famous George Foreman Lean Mean Grilling Machine, which has sold nearly 50 million units worldwide. George is also the spokesman for Casual Male Clothing line (Makers of Big & Tall), and in addition to his best-selling autobiography George has released yet another critically acclaimed book called George Foreman’s Guide To Life, along with three other cookbooks.
Former heavyweight boxing champ, George Foreman, has been named the featured speaker for the upcoming 2013 Casa de Amor gala fundraiser that will be held on Oct. 10 at the American Bank Center. The announcement was made Wednesday, Sept. 4, at a press conference held by the Ronald McDonald House of Corpus Christi.
