    Goerge Forman III wins in pro debut

    [size=13pt]Foreman III wins pro debut, KOs Weaver in first round[/size]

    KINDER, La. -- George Foreman III won in his professional debut, stopping Clyde Weaver at 1:16 of the first round Saturday night at Coushatta Casino Resort.

    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 6-foot-5, 236-pound 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," Forman 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.

    "You never know. This guy surprised me. A guy can train in the gym and look real good. But then they get in the ring and is a flop," the elder Foreman said. "Now I know he's a fighter."

    26 is pretty old to start your career. it looks like someone forgot to tell Weaver that he was supposed to throw a punch

    The guy he is fighting looks like they grabbed him from the bar next door and threw some gloves on him.
