Boxing Career: 

Foreman started his boxing career out with a bang, winning a gold medal in the 1968 Mexico City Olympic Games in the boxing/heavyweight division. He defeated Jonas Cepulis, a 29 year old veteran, 10 years older than Foreman and with a 12 year career already under his belt.

Foreman walked around the ring carrying a US flag and bowing to the crowd after his victory. He has said that winnign the gold medal was the achievement he was most proud of in his entire career.

Foreman turned pro in 1969, winning 13 fights that year, 11 of them total knockouts. In 1970, Foreman won all 12 of his bouts, and the next year, he won 7 more fights by knockout. He continued his impressive winning streak until 1974, when he faced tougher opponents such as Ken Norton and Muhammad Ali.

For his fight against Ali, he traveled to Zaire, and the match was being touted as The Rumble in the Jungle. Ali defeated Foreman and became the first boxer to knock him down. Unable to secure another victory, Foreman retired in 1977 after a devastating loss to Jimmy Young.

Foreman had a decent wealth he had made from his historic matches. But by 1987 nearly all of that $5 million fortune from boxing was gone in bad investments and an overly extravagant lifestyle. George was literally on the verge of total bankruptcy. So Foreman started boxing again, staging an impressive comeback that lasted into the late 1990s after he had also become a boxing commentator for HBO.

George Foreman officially retired for good in 1997 at the age of 48. His final record was 76 wins (68 knockouts) and just five losses. Foreman was inducted into the World Boxing Hall of Fame and International Boxing Hall of Fame. He has been ranked the 8th greatest heavyweight in history.

George Foreman Grill:

Foreman stated that success in his come back from retirement in the 90s was owed to a healthier lifestyle and nutrition. In 1994, he was approached by Salton, Inc, which was looking for a spokesperson for its fat-reducing grill. Foreman obliged, and by 2009 the Grill had sold over 100 million units.

Foreman has never confirmed how much he has made from the endorsement, but there are reports that mention that Salton paid him $138 million in 1999 for the right to use his name. Before to that, he was being paid 40 percent of the profits on each grill sold, earning him roughly $4.5 million a month in payouts at its peak.

It is estimated that he has made over $200 million from the grill, substantially more than he earned as a boxer.

Other Pursuits: Foreman is a partner in the Panther Racing Indy Car team. He has authored five books and he still makes the occasional appearance on TV (guest on The 700 Club, judge on the American Inventor) and film (cameo in Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian).
