George Foreman

As heavyweight champion of the world, Foreman was the darkness to Muhammad Ali’s effervescence. But after regaining his title at the unlikely age of 45, and lending his name to the best-selling grill in history, Foreman reinvented himself as a lovable teddy bear whose business acumen for sponsorship deals was unequaled.
