Plot Summary

FOREMAN is the definitive feature documentary on legendary boxer and pitchman George Foreman. Framed around his improbable comeback, it begins with his journey from "the Bloody Fifth" in Houston, one of the most violent and dangerous neighborhoods in America, to Olympic gold and the heavyweight championship. But a shocking defeat in "the Rumble in the Jungle" at the hands of Muhammad Ali will change his life forever. Just 28 years old, George Foreman lays down his gloves, retires from boxing, and becomes a preacher on the streets of Houston. For the next ten years, he doesn't so much as ball his fists, let alone step in the ring - So a decade later, when George, now a minister, pushing 40, and tipping the scales at over 300 pounds, announces that he is not only returning to boxing but will once again become heavyweight champion of the world, he is met with laughter. Thus begins the most unlikely comeback in the history of professional sports, an epic journey that results in George, at 45, becoming the oldest heavyweight champion in history. Equally unlikely and remarkable is George's personal transformation from reviled villain to national treasure -- an arc that culminates with the most successful celebrity marketing endorsement of all time. FOREMAN is the unbelievable story of the man behind the grill, an almost-Biblical tale of redemption, resurrection, and one man's impossible dream.

Quotes George Foreman: I can't understand how another man would ball up his fist, put on gloves and try and knock another man unconscious. I just can't see it. I don't understand how I did it. I couldn't do that again.
