Summary: From the mean streets of Houston to the pinnacle of corporate America, the life story of boxer George Foreman has the aura of a Hollywood concoction. But it's all true. Regaining his World Heavyweight title at the unlikely age of 45 and lending his name to a best-selling indoor grill, Foreman reinvented himself as a lovable teddy bear whose business acumen for sponsorship deals appears unequaled. CNBC examines Foreman's wide-ranging career as well as his work philosophy, which embraces both a strong business sense and a determination to make a difference in the lives of young people. Viewers learn about his accomplishments as a pitchman for Doritos, Nike, and several other companies-and the project that drives these business triumphs: the George Foreman Youth & Community Center in Houston, Texas.
