George posted a tweet on Sunday night, which has since been removed, saying: "First Sunday in 42 years without my Freeda. She's With her maker now".

Following her father's footsteps in the ring, Freeda started her professional middleweight boxing career in 2000 winning her first five professional fights.

She then retired in 2001 to focus on work as a boxing promoter and being a mother.

Freeda appeared in documentaries about her legend father, who is a two-time world heavyweight champion and an Olympic gold medallist.

She also featured in a guest role on a 2003 episode of King of the Hill.
