There is no need to introduce who Boxing Champ Evander Holyfield is! We are all familiar with his boxing skills and his numerous titles – he is after all the only heavyweight boxer to win the world heavyweight championship 5 times.
What you may not know however, is that Evander is a very religious man who put his money where his fist is. He has donated millions to the church and has also founded The Evander Holyfield Foundation which strives to strengthen the lives of youth and their families by establishing and funding programs dedicated to their athletic, academic and spiritual development.

TSP: If you could go back in time to when you were 20 years old and give yourself some advice – what would it be?
