George Foreman's Daughter, Freeda, Dead At 42
Law enforcement sources say Freeda's body was found in her home near Houston, Texas by a family member.
Cops are awaiting a report from the coroner's office on the cause of death, but it’s said no foul play is suspected.
Freeda began boxing professionally as a middleweight in 2000 and won her first 5 fights before losing her sixth bout in 2001. She retired after the loss with a pro record of 5-1 with 3 KOs to focus on being a mother and other projects, including boxing promotion.
Her parents also didn't enjoy her being in the ring ... so George reportedly paid her to quit.
Freeda was born in Texas and is one of George's 5 daughters. He also has 5 sons, all named George, and Freeda's middle name is George as well.
She appeared in a couple documentaries about her dad, and had a guest role on a 2003 episode of "King of the Hill."
Freeda wrote on her Twitter bio ... "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."
She's survived by her husband, 2 daughters, 3 grandchildren, her parents and 11 siblings. Freeda was 42. RIP
