Remember last year when former Heavyweight Champ George Formean was "grilling" (oh, hahaha) Michael Andretti about team ownership?

George Foreman Jr. and brother George III serve as vice presidents of George Foreman Enterprises, the marketing company founded by their father. They also founded their own investment company, JR3, which has strategic investments in a diverse portfolio of industries including real estate, apparel, exercise equipment, sporting goods, financial services, entertainment, and music.
