Nicknamed as the “Big George”, George Foreman is a two time world heavyweight champion and an Olympic gold medalist. This former American professional boxer went on to become an ordained minister, author and entrepreneur. His boxing career can be split up into two phases - 1969-1977 and 1987-1997. In the first phase of his career, he defeated the invincible Joe Frazier and went to win his first heavyweight championship. He defended his title successfully twice before his first professional defeat to Muhammad Ali in ‘The Rumble in the Jungle’. With lack of opportunities for another shot at the title and what Foreman considered a “religious epiphany”, he retired and eventually became an ordained minister. A decade later, he made a comeback into the ring and defeated Michael Moorer and became the oldest boxer to win the heavyweight title. “Big George” was inducted into the ‘World Boxing Hall of Fame’ and the ‘International Boxing Hall of Fame’. With an unparallel record of 68 knockouts, 76 wins and 5 losses, the IBRO rated Foreman as the 8th greatest heavyweight of all time. Here are some of the famous quotes from this legendary boxer highlighting his thoughts and sayings.
