August 17 – Chris Byrd
6:00 p.m. EST
Join us this week on Christian Devotions SPEAK UP! when host Scott McCausey interviews the former Heavyweight Champion of the World, Chris Byrd.

After winning the silver medal at the 1992 Summer Olympic Games in Barcelona, the Lord slowed Chris’s pace, allowing him to take an inventory of his life. He was married to his beautiful wife and best friend, Tracy, had an adorable baby girl, Jordan, and a future that appeared bright. Everything seemed right on track, yet something was missing.
It was at this time that Tracy felt the calling of Christ. Her church attendance was infectious, and one day Chris found himself following his family into God’s house. Chris filled the empty void with Christ and bounced back professionally, hungry to achieve his boxing dreams. He added weight to enter the heavyweight division and accumulated 36 professional victories. Byrd was one of the world's best heavyweights from the late 1990s into the mid 2000s.
Chris’s greatest boxing triumph was a win over Evander Holyfield on December 14, 2002. His lopsided, unanimous decision brought him the IBF Title in an impressive performance against one of the biggest names in boxing history.
