George, 70, is father to 12 kids, with seven daughters and five sons, the latter of whom are all named George.

Freeda won her first five bouts in the ring in 2000, before her first loss a year later, and retired with a 5-1 record to focus her attention on caring for her family and various personal passions. She also appeared in some documentaries about George and his career. She voiced a role on a 2003 episode of King of the Hill. "It's something I always really loved", Freeda once told The Greenville News, admitting her dad wasn't thrilled by her decision at the time.

Our healing thoughts go out to all those affected by Freeda's death during this hard time.

Freeda's mother, Andre Skeete, said she last spoke with her daughter on Thursday.
