George Foreman

The George Foreman of today, genial, gentlemanly, and widely popular, bears little resemblance to his early thuggish person. Indeed, some have called him a "Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde" in reverse, who transformed himself from the monster into the good and pleasant fellow. He captured the hearts of boxing fans when he reentered heavyweight competitions after ten years away, and managed to recapture the title at the age of 45, twenty years after losing it to Muhammad Ali. Today, a successful entrepreneur, actor, founder of his own church, and a "grand old man" of boxing, George Foreman can smile out at the world. It was not always so.
