The 42-year-old daughter of former heavyweight champion George Foreman committed suicide by hanging herself, a medical examiner in Texas said.

Freeda Foreman, who also spent time as a boxer, was found dead in her Houston-area home on Friday. Officials did not suspect foul play, and the Harris County Institute of Forensic Sciences revealed on its website on Tuesday that “asphyxia by hanging” was the cause of death.

She was 5-1 as a professional boxer, but retired to spend more time with her family.

George Foreman, a two-time heavyweight champion, paid tribute to his daughter with a Twitter post on Sunday.

“Daddy I want to Box, ‘Get an Education first’ I said, well she Brought The bacon home ( degree) 2 Kids 3 Grands (Husband) First Sunday in 42 years without my Freeda,” he wrote. “She’s With her maker now. 10 kids forever. Just 1 more day I wanted okay 1 more year aw I more decade.”

Freeda, one of seven daughters, appeared in several documentaries about her father and voiced a guest role on the popular animated TV series “King of the Hill.” She said his father did not want her to become a boxer.

“Dad never wanted any of his kids to see him fight,” she told the London Mirror in 2000. “He always protected us from that world.”
