George Foreman III Wins First Boxing Match With KO
Boxer George Foreman III--the son of legendary boxer and grill impresario George Foreman--made his professional boxing debut at the Coushatta Casino Resort in Kinder, LA this weekend.
Foreman III looked impressive in his debut, knocking out Clyde Weaver of Parsons, Tenn. Despite his boxing pedigree, George Foreman III came late to boxing. The 6'5", 236-pound Foreman had no amateur experience and waited until he was 26 years old to make his pro debut.
His famous father has taken him under his wing, and says that George Foreman III is a chip off the old block.
"You never know. This guy surprised me. A guy can train in the gym and look real good. But then they get in the ring and is a flop," the elder Foreman said. "Now I know he's a fighter."
George Foreman has five sons, all of whom are named George. Before taking up boxing, George Foreman III, who also goes by the name of Monk, has served as his father's business manager.
