George Foreman III – the twenty-six year old son of the former heavyweight champion/ lean, mean fat grilling machine salesman – won his first professional “fight” over Parsons, Tennessee native Clyde Weaver, who will go down in boxing history as an extremely ineffective punching bag.

“Monk,” as the younger Foreman is known (remember, all of his brothers are named George), dropped his “opponent” at the 1:16 mark of the first round.

You can watch the whole “fight” here.

And in case you’re sitting there thinking to yourself “heck, I could have done better than that,” you would be correct.

“Monk” could have danced around the ring punching at air and had a tougher fight.
