Freeda Foreman, the 42-year-old daughter of former professional boxer George Foreman, was sadly found dead in her home in Houston, TX on March 10.

Foreman followed her father's path, becoming a professional boxer before retiring in 2001.

"Well she brought the bacon home (degree) 2 kids 3 grands (husband)". According to TMZ, she died by an apparent suicide, though a final cause of death is yet to be confirmed by a coroner. The cause of death is not yet known. She was found unresponsive, and a report from authorities in Texas say indications are it was suicide as she was found hanged. After the loss, she retired to focus on family and other kinds of projects, including boxing promotion.

My condolences to the Foreman family and all who loved Freeda. Freeda won her first five bouts before losing a year later. In 2000, Freeda Foreman started boxing as a middleweight and like her father became a name to be feared in the ring.

There was also a foray into voice acting when she guest starred in a 2003 episode of King of the Hill.
