Freeda's body was found by a family member in her home in Texas, and the family is currently waiting for a report from the coroner's office. While she was found alone, sources reveal that there is no foul play suspected. Instead, they are waiting for autopsy results to proclaim her cause of death accurately.

Like her father, Freeda was a professional boxer, competing in the middleweight division in 2000, winning her first five fights. She then lost her sixth fight in 2001 and retired after the loss with her pro record staying at 5-1 with 3 knockouts. Since then, she focused on boxing promotion and her family.

While it seemed as if she retired because she lost, it turns out her dad was not pleased with her being in the ring. In fact, after her loss, it's reported that she was paid by her father to quit boxing.

Freeda, born and raised in Texas, is one of the five daughters of legendary boxer George Freeman. He also had five sons, whom he all named "George." Like her brothers, Freeda's middle name is also "George."

She didn't receive as much time in the spotlight as her dad, only appearing in a couple of documentaries about him, and a guest role on an episode of "King of the Hill" in 2003.

On her Twitter bio, Freeda calls herself a "good mother, wife, and friend." Aside from her love for family, she also wants to be remembered for wanting to make a positive difference in the American Criminal Justice System.

Following her death, she left behind her husband, two daughters, three grandchildren, her parents, and eleven siblings from both her mom and dad.

Rest In Peace, Freeda.
