Throughout his life and career, world heavyweight champion and Olympic gold medalist George Foreman was built to be tough. But this is not the time for the boxer to be tough.
Instead, this is the time for the boxer to mourn.
“Daddy I want to Box, “Get an Education first” I said,” Foreman wrote on his Twitter page Sunday (March 10) in regards to the death of his dear daughter Freeda. “Well she Brought The bacon home (degree) 2 Kids 3 Grands (Husband) First Sunday in 42 years without my Freeda. She’s with her maker now. 10 kids forever. Just 1 more day I wanted okay 1 more year aw I more decade.”

According to sources, Freeda was found unresponsive at her home in Texas on Friday night (March 8.) She was just 42 at the time of her death.
“Atascocita EMS were at the home and determined the woman, Freeda George Foreman, was deceased,” police told People magazine. “Harris County Sheriff’s Office Homicide investigators also responded to the scene. Preliminary indications are that the cause of death is an apparent suicide. A final determination on the cause of death will be made by the Harris County Institute of Forensic Sciences.”
Fans may recall that Freeda briefly walked in her daddy’s footsteps back in 200, when she began boxing professionally. She would retire the next year and go on to become a wife, mother and grandmother.
We send our condolences to all who mourn the loss of Freeda.
