George Foreman’s luxury mansion ravaged after fire breaks out in multi-million-dollar car garage

Boxing legend George Foreman has been forced to confirm that “all is well” after a fire broke out inside his property.

 

A golf cart reportedly caught ablaze inside his garage that contains a stunning multi-million pound collection of 40 luxury cars.

 

Firefighters say the fire was contained inside the garage of his Texas mansion and no damage was caused to the main property.

 

A fire crew was seen outside his house and Foreman – who made millions from selling his electric George Foreman grill – took to Twitter to confirm he and his family were unharmed.

The former two-time heavyweight world champ wrote: “Don’t worry all is well, Dogs are barking and I don’t mean my feet.

 

“Thanks to all the fire fighters.”

 

It appears that the majority of his remarkable collection of motors also survived without serious damage.

 

Rachel Moreno of the Harris County Fire Marshal’s office said: “Right now it looks like the cars are in pretty good shape.

“We do have an origin that’s towards the back of garage, but there’s a lot of smoke damage and water damage.”

 

Foreman, 70, lives in the mansion along with his fifth wife Mary Joan Martelly.

 

It is unclear how much his car collection is worth but he boasts a Ford GT that is reportedly valued over £760,000.

 

Other cars include a Ferrari F40, Ferrari 360, a Lamborghini Diablo and a Rolls-Royce.

 

Speaking to talk show host Graham Bensinger in 2017, Foreman revealed he has so many cars that he has to hide them from his wife.

 

He said: “I’ve taken to hiding them from my wife now, and some are in different places. More than 50.”

 

His family experienced tragedy last month when daughter Freeda was found dead at her home near Houston at the age of 42.

It is understood that no foul play is suspected.

 

Freeda, one of Big George’s seven daughters, started her professional boxing career as a middleweight in 2000.

 

She won her first five fights before losing her sixth fight in 2001.
