Some people do not care, but fortunately, more people care. Action is better than ugly words.

MANILA, Philippines - Evander Holyfield, the former undisputed heavyweight champion, is in town to help the victims of Typhoon Pablo in Mindanao.

“We have to feed the hungry,” said the 50-year-old boxer upon his arrival at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport yesterday morning.

Holyfield, a four-time heavyweight champion from 1990 up to 2000, is an ambassador of the Global Village Champion Foundation, a non-profit organization founded by Yank Barry and Muhammad Ali.

Barry, who flew in with Holyfield, is a nominee for the 2012 Nobel Peace Prize. He said the GVCF has always been in touch with the victims of Typhoon Pablo.

Holyfield will also lend an ear to the poor victims of the calamity that left over a thousand dead last December."
