Freeda is survived by a large family that includes her husband, two daughters, three grandchildren, her parents and 11 siblings. She retired in 2001 after losing her sixth bout.

Like her five brothers, Freeda's middle name is also George in the unique take her dad had on naming his children.

Freeda Foreman is known for following in her father's footsteps and becoming a professional boxer.

"Daddy I want to Box, "Get an Education first" I said, well she Brought The bacon home ( degree)", Foreman wrote.

Late Sunday, George Foreman hit up his Twitter account to note how this would be his "first Sunday in 42 years without my Freeda". "She's with her maker now".

Legendary boxer George Foreman is speaking out for the first time since his daughter, Freeda, died Saturday at the age of 42. "Okay, one more year - aww one more decade". Investigators said there was no suspicion of foul play. In her short career, she had three knockouts. "It's something I always really loved".

As TMZ reports, her father George reportedly paid her to quit boxing. She was an advocate for criminal justice reform.

George Foreman, 70, became famous as an Olympic gold medal victor and two-time world heavyweight champion. A family member, who has not been identified, was reportedly the first to discover Freeda's body.

Since retiring from boxing, Foreman has made an extremely successful transition into the entertainment industry and became even more famous for the marketing of products such as the George Foreman grill.
