George Foreman, the former heavyweight Champion of the World as well as an Olympic Gold medalist is sometimes amazed that people know him for something else. In fact some people know nothing of Foreman being a boxer, but instantly recognize Foreman as the man behind the George Foreman Cooking Grill.

In a recent interview with Sports Illustrated, Foreman recalls a time when he was introduced as a Boxer only to have a 6 year old think it was a joke. Apparently the 6 year old, like many, recognized Foreman for his famous cooking Grill.

Foreman tells SI: "It's scary because I'll be talking to kids and I get introduced as the former heavyweight champion, Olympic gold medalist, whatever, and they'll know me just from the grill. One time a 6-year-old said, "That's the cooking man." He didn't even know me as a boxer. He thought it was a joke that I was being introduced as a boxer."
