Titus O’Neil loves giving back. His life has been about charity for a long time and a lot of that work has gone unnoticed, because he does it because he wants to. Now he could receive a huge honor for his ongoing efforts to make the world a better place.
O’Neil is a finalist for the Muhammad Ali Sports Humanitarian Award this year. He is currently a WWE Global Ambassador after quietly retiring from in-ring competition. That doesn’t mean he’s 100% done in the squared circle.
He was also a finalist for the Muhammad Ali Sports Humanitarian Award in 2020, and he’s coming back this year as a WWE Hall of Famer. O’Neil received the Warrior Award this year for his continued efforts toward charity.
O’Neil’s competition for this year’s award includes the Chicago Cubs’ Anthony Rizzo, Kansas City Chiefs’ Laurent Duvernay-Tardif, and the WNBA’s Layshia Clarendon of the Minnesota Lynx.
“MAJOR NEWS [smiling face with sunglasses emoji] I’m honored to be named as a finalist for the 2021 Muhammad Ali #SportsHumanitarian Award by @espn and @ESPNCitizenship!” Titus happily tweeted out.
The award will be given out on July 12th, so we’ll have to see if he wins the big honor this yea. Even if he doesn’t win the award, Titus’ contributions toward charity and advocacy will not stop at all.
