George Edward Foreman, ameriški boksar, * 10. januar 1949, Marshall, Texas, ZDA.

Foreman je dvakratni svetovni boksarski prvak v težki kategoriji in splošno velja za enega najboljših boksarjev v težki kategoriji vseh časov. Kot amaterski boksar je osvojil zlato olimpijsko medaljo v težki kategoriji na Poletnih olimpijskih igrah 1968 v Mexico Cityju. Njegov udarec velja za enega najmočnejših v zgodovini boksa. Njegova najbolj znana dvoboja sta zmaga s prekinitvijo proti Joeju Frazierju 22. januarja 1973 na Jamajki za osvojitev naslova svetovnega boksarskega prvak v težki kategoriji in poraz proti Muhammadu Aliju v Zairu 30. oktobra 1974, v dvoboju znanem kot »The Rumble in the Jungle«, v katerem je naslov izgubil. Leta 1994 je v starosti petinštiridesetih let z zmago proti Michaelu Moorerju po dvajsetih letih ponovno osvojil naslov svetovnega boksarskega prvak v težki kategoriji in je najstarejši svetovni boksarski prvak v težki kategoriji vseh časov. Revija Ring ga je imenovala med petindvajset najboljših boksarjev vseh časov.[2]
