Former undisputed World Boxing heavyweight champion, Evander Holyfield, on Wednesday visited Lagos State Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode, donating $3 million worth of healthcare facilities to the state.
Holyfield, who announced the donation during the courtesy, said that the gesture was part of his strategy of giving back to the society.
He noted that the giving back to the society will help the children who have interest in sports to actualise their dream as he was able to do.
While narrating how his mother aided his boxing career, Holyfield said his mother often advise him to hold on to what he knows doing best and never quit even when the tide isn’t good.
“I held on to those words and they assisted me in becoming world heavyweight champion today. I believe that the kids should be inspired just like my mother inspired me to hold on tenaciously to those things I am good at.” the four-time heavyweight champion said.
