The Olympic gold medal winner, who was the first boxer to earn more than $100 million in purses, reflects on his philanthropic efforts. “I’ve done a lot of work in conjunction with various charities, just trying to give service, lend a hand, use whatever celebrity I have to make that awareness,” he tells Bottom Line Sports Show hosts Gerald Brown and Jonathan Foy. “I just kicked off my foundation, in Santa Monica, here in California. It benefits Juvenile Diabetes research, trying to find not just a patch or a band-aid, but a cure to this disease… It’s just a great thing to give back and make a difference.”
