On Saturday, March 9, 2019, two unexpected boxing tragedies suddenly rocked the professional boxing world into an unanticipated state of mourning.



Former world heavyweight champion George Foreman’s boxing daughter Freeda George Foreman, age 42, who had a 5-1 record as a pro boxer, was found dead in her home in Atosocita, Texas, at age 42. Foul play is not suspected. Cops called to the scene were investigating a possible suicide according to click2houston.com. These reports are still officially unconfirmed. She is survived by parents, husband, two children, three grandchildren, and her 11 brothers and sisters. Funeral arrangements in Texas are incomplete.

Elsewhere, Beth Plant, age 51, the mother of International Boxing Federation World Middleweight Caleb Plant, was shot dead by a sheriff’s deputy after pulling a knife from a backpack while being transported by paramedics to the hospital in a moving ambulance in Cheatham County, Tennessee, according to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation. The driver of the ambulance managed to pulled over without getting hurt and called for help. The woman turned the knife on sheriff’s deputies who subsequently arrived on the scene.
