George Foreman also known as ‘Big George’ and ‘The Heywood Giant’, the 6ft 3inch texan is a former two-time World Heavyweight Champion and Olympic gold medalist. Foreman also owns the reputation as being one of the hardest punchers in boxing history. Some of his most notable bouts were his thrilling knockout victory against Joe Frazier in 1973 and his KO loss to Muhammad Ali in “The Rumble in the Jungle” in 1974.

In 1994 he knocked out Michael Moorer (age 26) to reclaim the title he held and lost to Ali 20 years earlier. In doing so he became the oldest man ever to become heavyweight boxing champion of the world, at age 45.

Foreman has been acclaimed by Ring magazine as one of the 25 greatest fighters of all time. In his incredible career Foreman has compiled a professional record of 76 wins and 5 losses.
