    Evander Holyfield

    in History

    Despite growing up poor—and not meeting his dad until the age of 21—the only boxer to win the World Heavyweight title four times says he was never bitter. “I did have a mother. And my mother instilled in me that you have to forgive,” he tells Dr. Blogstein host David Brown. "When you forgive, then you can set yourself free. People who don’t forgive, they always using a part of they mind by thinkin’ about ‘this.’ They always talkin’ about, ‘Aw, this happened to me.’ I never said I didn’t make it because I came from the ghetto, I was black, I was this and that. That’s no excuse, when there’s forgiveness.”

    Evander Holyfield: A True Champion for Christ (Gospel Light Minute #77)

    in Sports

    He is an American professional boxer and a former Undisputed World Champion in both the cruiserweight and heavyweight divisions, earning him the nickname "The Real Deal." After winning the bronze medal in the Light Heavyweight division at the 1984 Summer Olympics, he debuted as a professional at the age of 21. He moved to the cruiserweight division in 1985 and won his first title the following year, when he defeated Dwight Muhammad Qawi for the WBA Cruiserweight belt. He would then go on to defeat Ricky Parkey and Carlos De Leon to win the Lineal, IBF and WBC titles, becoming the Undisputed Cruiserweight Champion.



    He moved up to heavyweight in 1988, defeating Buster Douglas for the The Ring, Lineal, WBC, WBA and IBF titles in 1990. He also had other notable victories over fighters such as: George Foreman, Larry Holmes, Riddick Bowe, Ray Mercer, Mike Tyson, Michael Moorer, John Ruiz, Michael Dokes and Hasim Rahman. He is the only 4-time World Heavyweight Champion, winning the WBA, WBC, and IBF titles in 1990, the WBA and IBF titles in 1993 and the WBA title in 1996 and 2000.



    Raised without his father, he gave his life to Christ as a young boy. Early in life, he learned the power of prayer and turned to it when going through tough situations such as divorce, business failure, and the accidental killing of his older brother. On his boxing shorts and robe, he has the words inscribed, "I can do all things through Christ who strengtheneth me." After one of his most famous fights with Mike Tyson, he said, "I prayed during training, I prayed when I got into the ring, I prayed when I was fighting him." He has often said, "Boxing is 90 percent spiritual and 10 percent physical. It's the spiritual aspect that gives the edge and an extra burst of energy to draw from. My victories are not achieved by my might, nor by my power, but by the Spirit of Christ who strengthens me." His name is Evander Holyfield.

    Special Guest Psalmist James Dowe

    in Lifestyle

     James W. Dowe, Jr. was born in the Bronx, New York on June 7, 1948.  Dowe is the second eldest child of Walter James and Lillian Dowe.  He has an elder sister, two younger sisters and a younger brother.
    The family lived in the Edenwald Houses in the northeast section of the Bronx.  Dowe and his siblings formed a gospel group called the Dowe Singers.  Later, they were joined by another gospel group, the Douglas Singers and became known as the Dowe-Douglas Singers.
    During his years at Evander High School in the Bronx, New York, singing baritone lead vocals, Dowe and some of his school mates formed an R&B singing group, performing at local gigs.  The personnel of the group continually changed; but, Dowe felt compelled to record his music and build a career in show business.
    Dowe abandoned his music to pursue a career more befitting a husband and father as a New York City Firefighter.  He and his late wife, Susan, had four children, a son, James W. Dowe, III, and three daughters, Adrienne, Joy and Monica, respectively.  Having served the NYC Firefighters with distinction, he decided to retire and relocate with his family to North Carolina where he and his wife were called to ministry.
    In 2004, Dowe lost his beloved wife to breast cancer.  He was by her side as her caregiver and as he refers to it, “servant,” throughout her five years of struggle with this devastating disease.
