One of the most affable boxers in history, "Big" George Foreman, is profiled this week on the Characters of Boxing (And Beyond) Podcast. Today he is one of the most marketable athletes of all-time, but he was a much different personality when he entered the ring in 1974 to face Muhammad Ali in The Rumble in the Jungle. Learn about his transition from villain to lovable character on today's podcast. We explore his extended absence from boxing, his famous grill and television show appearances. We also discuss the flawless strategy he executed against Michael Moorer to capture the heavyweight championship in 1994 at 45 years old.
