Greg Foster and George Foreman Featured Guests on Crunchtime this Saturday
We have a loaded show for you on Cruchtime this Saturday May 6 with former UTEP standout and current Milwaukee Bucks assistant coach Greg Foster, and two time heavyweight champion of the world, ‘Big’ George Foreman . Foster will join the Iceman at 11:30 to talk about Milwaukee Bucks basketball, the Greek Freak, and the NBA playoffs.
Foster, who played for UTEP from 1988-1990 was a key contributor for the Miners’ squads that won two WAC titles, and had a stellar senior season averaging 15.0 points per game and 6.3 rebounds per contest along side teammates Tim Hardaway and Antonio Davis. Foster would go on to play in the NBA for 10 different teams from 1990-2003, and won an NBA championship with the 2001 Los Angeles Lakers. More recently Greg was an assistant coach under Tim Floyd at UTEP, and has been an assistant coach for the Milwaukee Bucks under Jason Kidd since 2014.
Former two time world heavyweight champion and Olympic gold medalist “Big” George Foreman will join us at 12:30 to give his thoughts on the epic bout between current heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua and Wladimir Klitschko this past weekend, and will break down one of the most anticipated fights in quite some time between Canelo Alvarez and Julio Cesar Chavez Jr.
Foreman’s legendary career spanned over the period of four decades form the 1960’s to the 1990’s, and included some of the most memorable bouts in boxing history. His fight with Muhammad Ali on October 29,1974 in Zaire, Africa, known as “The Rumble in the Jungle” was arguably the greatest sporting event of the 20th century. Foreman retired in 1977 only to come back in 1987 and become the oldest man to ever regain the heavyweight champion of the world at age 45 by defeating Michael Moorer in 1994.
