FOREMAN Georges (1948) United States / Boxing
Heavyweight Olympic champion in '68, Georges Foreman grabbed fame by brandishing the American flag at arms length in order to distance himself from the "Black Power" movement. He went on to become a professional winning the world title in '73, a title that he kept until '77, when he retired from boxing.He would remain unbeaten in 38 fights before falling to Mohammed Ali in a bout dubbed "the rumble in the jungle" in Zaire in 1974.Ten years later, he climbed back into the ring with the aim of becoming world champion again. He clung on to this dream until 1994 when lifted the champion's belt at nearly 46 years old; an almost unbelievable outcome.
