George Foreman Breaks Silence on Daughter's Tragic Death at the Age of 42

Legendary boxer, George Foreman, is speaking out after losing his daughter under tragic circumstances this weekend at the relatively young age of forty-two.

Freeda Foreman, 42, was found dead by a family member at her home in Houston, Texas on Saturday with police ruling out any foul play while awaiting the coroner's report.

It has since been confirmed by the authorities that Freeda hung herself in an apparent suicide. The reasons are as yet unknown.

George Foreman, 70, world heavyweight champion and Olympic gold medalist, took to Twitter to share a touching tribute to his late daughter.

The father of 12, five boys and seven girls (two adopted), shared Freeda's graduation picture while describing what he told her about putting education first when she announced her interest in pursuing a boxing career.

The born-again Christian was adamant that Freeda put her education before any other aspirations, and proudly mentioned all her achievements before lamenting about wanting more time with her.

In her short but sweet sporting history, Freeda was undefeated in her first five bouts in the boxing ring in 2000 before suffering her first and last loss. She retired with a 5-1 record to raise a family and pursue other interests.

Freeda had made appearances in a few TV documentaries, including "Relatively Speaking: George Foreman," "Beyond the Glory," and "10 Things Every Guy Should Experience." She also voiced a "Family Guy" episode.

Freeda's account is private but her Twitter bio reads:

"Aside from my love of family, being a good mother, wife, and friend, I aspire to make a positive difference in our American Criminal Justice System."  

Freeda is survived by her husband, their two children, three grandchildren, and her parents, siblings, nieces, and nephews.
