FREAK Shots: The George Foremans
George Foreman named all five of his boys after himself, but only one has taken up pro boxing. I met the retired boxer and “grillionaire” at his son’s pro debut last Saturday. George III won, but in a bout that some say looked rather unevenly matched.
I didn’t get the chance to ask him why, but in this Sports Illustrated interview, Foreman Sr. says he named his boys after himself not so they’d become boxers, but so they’d have something in common “in case they got separated or divided.”
