Question: What former heavyweight boxing champion and entrepreneur was born in Marshall, Texas, in 1949?

Answer: George Foreman. He won the gold medal at the 1968 Olympics and knocked out Joe Frazier in 1973 to take the world heavyweight title. His first loss came the following year against Muhammad Ali during the famed “Rumble in the Jungle.” In 1994, he began promoting what would become known as the George Foreman Grill, over 100 million of which have been sold worldwide.
