George Foreman

boxer, actor
Born: 1/10/1949
Birthplace: Marshall, Texas

Heavyweight boxer who won the world championship as a 24-year-old, lost it a year later, and then improbably won it back 20 years later at the age of 45. As likeable in the public arena as he is big and strong, Foreman is a visible spokesman for many products and causes and briefly starred in a television series (George, 1993). Foreman's memorable fight when he lost the title to Muhammad Ali in 1974 has recently been brought to the screen in the acclaimed documentary, When We Were Kings (1997).
