Evander Holyfield took a family visit to the Georgia Aquarium the other day.
Here’s a nice photo of the champ and two of his kids near the Ocean Voyager area, home to the whale sharks, during a behind-the-scenes tour.
“Thank you to the Georgia Aquarium staff!” Holyfield tweeted afterward. “My kids had a great time, we will be back again.”
It’s been an up and down year for Holyfield. Not long after he was evicted from his 109-room mansion in Fayette County due to financial problems, he announced a huge auction of boxing memorabilia and other stuff. Then NBC interviewed him during the 2012 London Olympics as just another man-on-the-street, having failed to recognize him.
But his Twitter feed is always full of uplifting, positive messages like, “I had a lot of setbacks in my career but I always had a good attitude which gave me another chance to try,” and “A good attitude is better than talent.”
He likes to post photos, too, including this one of him with the Rev. Jesse Jackson and former President George W. Bush.
“We are all on journeys, learning and growing,” Holyfield posted. “So take the good with the bad because life is good.”
