Boxing legend George Foreman stopped by the set of Fox and Friends in the lead up to the Super Bowl, talking in part about his relationship over the years with Donald Trump, before he became President. President Trump helped him with three meals a day while preparing for the Holyfield fight. They talk about the importance never taking a step backwards is to winning
Brian Kilmeade asks Foreman how the world views “somebody that will not take a backwards step, and will move forward deliberately. How does that change the view of an opponent?”
Foreman replies, “You know, when you’re into something like this especially, you just gotta fight, you can’t even worry about the audience.” He says, “When I’m in those boxing matches I hear ‘Boo, boo, boo,’ after the fight, when I listen to them on the tape. But in the ring, you don’t listen to anything. You must step forward and fight.”
He’s asked why Donald Trump won, “Sometimes people win just because they’re winners. Some people lose just because they never thought they really would win, and they lose. Winning is an idea, once you get in it, you can’t lose. And then all of a sudden, you’re out of it.”
George makes a strange comment about skydiving social workers into Chicago, maybe an indication of the residual effects of that beating he says he took from Evander Holyfield.
