Former boxer George Foreman launches film about his life

STORY: Foreman was joined by director George Tillman Jr and cast members, including Khris Davis, Sullivan Jones and Sonja Sohn.

The film is based on the remarkable true story of one of the greatest comebacks of all time and the transformational power of second chances.

Foreman channeled his anger over childhood poverty into becoming an Olympic Gold medalist and World Heavyweight Champion, followed by a near-death experience that took him from the boxing ring to the pulpit.

But when he sees his community struggling spiritually and financially, Foreman returns to the ring and makes history by reclaiming his title.

'Big George Foreman' releases in cinemas April 28.
