Considered one of the most feared defensive fighters of all time, professional boxing legend Chris Byrd’s career is the pinnacle of athletic mastery. A two-time Heavyweight Champion of the world, three-time National Amateur Champion and U.S. Olympic Silver Medalist, he’s gone fist to fist with some of boxing’s hardest hitters beating the likes of Evander Holyfield and Vitali Klitschko. It wouldn’t be until he retired in 2008 that the collateral damage of years in the ring would come back in full force and put him in a literal fight for his life with a nearly 10 year battle with severe, debilitating chronic pain including neuropathy.

Byrd’s will to win and a friend’s recommendation to try CBD turned his life completely around.

From becoming suicidal on prescription pain medications to putting his family through what he calls “a living hell” for years, he says it was CBD that not only gave him relief from the intense pain, but his quality of life back in every way.

Byrd’ has seen first-hand the power of high-quality CBD products like NEWYOU and is ready to share what he believes is a miracle plant with the same passion and drive that propelled him to the top of the boxing world. With the sports community he loves in his sights, he feels that God has put him where he is today to be a bright light to those who are suffering in pain.

“This is not a sales pitch, this is reality. People hear my incredible results, they hear what I went through, and they say, ‘WOW’ can CBD help me?” And, the answer is YES.

NEWYOU has created a new blog called CHRIS’ CORNER for Byrd to share his CBD insights, inspirations and stories. If you’re a boxing fan you can also check out and follow Chris Byrd’s Social Media and YOUTUBE Channel on Boxing called Byrd’s Eye View.
