George Foreman

Today we may equate the lovable pitchman and preacher George Foreman with his Lean Mean Fat-Reducing Grilling Machine. Or, we may wonder why he named all five of his sons George. But back on November 5, 1994, 45-year-old Foreman stepped into the boxing ring at the MGM Grand Garden Arena to square off against Michael Moorer. When the bout was over, he left with the title heavyweight champion of the world — again. Today it remains one of the most memorable moments in boxing history.
