ESPN announced the finalists among the nominees for their Muhammad Ali Sports Humanitarian Award earlier today, one of several 2020 Sports Humanitarian Awards to be handed out alongside this year’s ESPYs next month. The award is given to athletes “whose continuous, demonstrated leadership has created a measured positive impact on their community through sports.” Among the honored nominees is WWE’s own Titus O’Neil, who certainly fits the above description.
Very HONORED to be named a Finalist.
