Foreman's son wins pro debut

GEORGE Foreman III won his professional debut in Louisiana on Saturday, stopping Clyde Weaver at 1:16 in the first round.

Foreman, the 26-year-old son of two-time world heavyweight champion George Foreman, floored Weaver with a left hook to the chin. Earlier, the 192-centimer, 107-kilogram Foreman knocked Weaver (0-2) down with a left hook to the body. "It feels good to know all the torture my father put me through paid off," Foreman said. The elder Foreman, who is his son's manager and trainer, didn't watch the fight, choosing to let his hand-picked corner team guide his son. After the fight was stopped, the father went into the arena to see his son.
