George Foremen has the net worth of a champ but you'd be surprised to learn how little of his fortune actually comes from boxing. In fact after turning professional in 1969 and stacking up an impressive career of 76 wins out of 81 fights, by the 1980's Foreman had a relatively small net worth of $5 million. The name George Foreman means different things to different generations. You old folks will recall the young 24-year old Texan who delivered a TKO to the undefeated Smokin' Joe Frazier in 1973, and whose first defeat was to Muhammad Ali in the 1974 Rumble in the Jungle, a historic battle that took place in Zaire and became the subject of the Oscar-winning documentary When We Were Kings. If you are younger, George Foreman is that jolly guy on TV who sells Meineke mufflers and the George Foreman Lean Mean Fat Reducing Grilling Machine. And if you are still in high school, George Foreman is the old guy on the reality TV show Family Foreman. A two-time World Heavyweight Boxing Champion, Olympic Gold Medalist, multimillionaire entrepreneur and born-again Christian minister, George Foreman represents an amazing story of success and perseverance. Unfortunately by 1987 nearly all of that $5 million fortune from boxing was gone through bad investments and an overly extravagant lifestyle. George was literally on the verge of total bankruptcy, in a recent interview he was quoted as saying; "It was that scary because you hear about people being homeless and I was only fractions, fractions from being homeless." So Foreman started boxing again, staging an impressive comeback that lasted into the late 1990's after which he became a boxing commentator for HBO. That's all good, but how much is he worth? About $250 million according to CNW. Over $150 million of that total came from the tremendously successful Foreman Grill, 60 million sold and counting. His hard work pays for a 40 acre estate in Texas where he lives with his fifth wife Mary Joan and several of his ten kids. The rumors are true: all 5 of his sons are named George Edward Foreman and his daughters have George as a middle name (except for 30 year-old Georgetta). Foreman has insisted that all of his children obtain a college degree, but that hasn't stopped a few of them from hopping in the boxing ring, diploma in hand. 26 year-old and graduate of Rice University, George III is following in his father's boxing footsteps by recently winning his first professional boxing match. 31 year-old daughter Freeda had a brief career trading jabs, with a record of 4-1. Daughter Natalie has taken a different path and is an aspiring singer. While his brood is busy building careers of their own, papa George continues to find new ways to grow his empire. He's currently a partner in the Panther Racing Indy Car team. He has authored five books and he still makes the occasional appearance on TV (guest on The 700 Club, judge on the American Inventor) and film (cameo in Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian). He even got a mention in Mariah Carey's 2009 song "Obsessed" ("he's all up in my George Foreman"). At 60 years-old, Big George shows no sign of slowing down. It seems like every generation has something to learn from this champ.
George Edward Foreman (nicknamed "Big George") (born January 10, 1949) is a retired American professional boxer, former two-time World Heavyweight Champion, Olympic gold medalist, ordained Baptist minister, author and successful entrepreneur.
A gold medalist at the 1968 Olympics, Foreman won the World Heavyweight title with a second round knockout of then-undefeated Joe Frazier in Kingston, Jamaica in 1973. He made two successful title defenses before losing to Muhammad Ali in "The Rumble in the Jungle" in 1974. He fought on but was unable to secure another title shot and retired following a loss to Jimmy Young in 1977 and became an ordained Christian minister. Ten years later Foreman announced a comeback, and in November 1994, at age 45, he regained the Heavyweight Championship by knocking out Michael Moorer. He remains the oldest Heavyweight Champion in history. He retired in 1997 at the age of 48, with a final record of 76-5, including 68 knockouts.
Foreman has been inducted into the World Boxing Hall of Fame and the International Boxing Hall of Fame. The International Boxing Research Organization (IBRO) currently rates Foreman as the eighth greatest heavyweight of all-time. In 2002, he was named one of the 25 greatest fighters of the past eighty years by The Ring magazine.The Ring also ranked him as the 9th greatest puncher of all-time. He was a ringside analyst for HBO's boxing coverage for twelve years, leaving in 2004. Outside of boxing, he is a successful entrepreneur and is known for his promotion of the George Foreman Grill, which has sold over 100 million units worldwide. In 1999 he sold the naming rights to the grill for $138 million.
George Foreman was born in Marshall, Texas. He grew up in the Fifth Ward, Houston, Texas, with six siblings. Although reared by J.D. Foreman, whom his mother had married when George was a small child, his biological father was Leroy Moorehead. Foreman was interested in football and idolized Jim Brown, but gave it u
