Default Boxers as businessmen

We all know that George Foreman has made a pile of money with his grill.

Ali owns a business which licenses his name and image as much as possible. He recently sued someone for using "Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee", without paying him for it.

Holyfield introduced his Real Deal Grill in 2007. I don't think it's doing too well as he has been foreclosed on and sued for various debts since then.

Dempsey ran a very successful restaurant for over 30 years.

That's all I know of, off the top of my head.

Any others that deserve mention?

Oscar De la Hoya runs a very succesful promotion company

Apparantley Lennox Lewis owns a car hire company? and I think Evander Holtfield owns a steakhouse.

I wasn't thinking about that.
Schmeling became a multi-millionaire after the War with a Coca-Cola distributorship.

Thanks for reminding me.
