The 42-year-old daughter of one of Professional Boxing’s greatest stars has been found dead in her Texas home.
Freeda Foreman, one of heavyweight boxing champ George Foreman's five daughters, has died under mysterious circumstances. She was found Saturday in her Atascocita, Texas home.
According to TMZ, a member of her family discovered the body but no cause of death has been issued. Although there was no sign of foul play, the young woman was not thought to have any serious medical conditions.
An investigation is underway to determine the exact cause of her death.
Freda, like her dad, was a champion boxer until her parents decided it was too dangerous for her. They paid her to quit the sport in 2001. While competing, she had an impressive 5-1 record.
“Freeda began boxing professionally as a middleweight in 2000 and won her first 5 fights before losing her sixth bout in 2001. She retired after the loss with a pro record of 5-1 with 3 KOs to focus on being a mother and other projects, including boxing promotion."
Freeda’s father, 70-year-old George Foreman, was an Olympic gold-medal-winner in boxing “who went on to a successful professional career that included bouts against Muhammad Ali, Joe Frazier and Ken Norton.”
Freeda wrote on her Twitter bio ... "Aside from my love of family, being a good mother, wife, and friend, I aspire to make a positive difference in our American Criminal Justice System."
Freda leaves behind her husband, two children, three grandchildren, her parents, and eleven siblings
Rest in peace, Freda. You left this world much too soon. Please pray for her family in their time of grief.
