It was great to speak with Evander Holyfield at the CNN Center in Atlanta and hear his sincere, authentic principles from his humble beginnings. His beliefs center around discipline, spirit and soul, striving to be your best by working hard.

His Mom taught him to “Be thankful for who he is and whatever he had” . He gives his Mom credit for all his success. “I always listen to my Mamma; I do what my Mamma tells me to do”. She’s gone now but instilled a solid foundation for Evander.

His fans and friends consider him “The Real Deal” and I must admit, I do too!
