Travis "the freight train" Walker stopped in at the Mothers in Crisis House to share his story. Walker won a prizefight last Friday and now holds both the IBA Heavyweight & North American Boxing Federation championship belts. The Champ says outside of boxing, his mission is to show young people how to make positive choices to better their lives.

When walker was asked what he told the children he said, "Positive things, you know, keep yourself around positive people. This street life ain't for nobody and if you think it's for you, you're going to find yourself in jail or somewhere, dead."

Walker's next step is to defend his new Heavyweight belts against some of the world's best. He hopes to score matches against heavyweights like Chris Arreola and Hasim Rahman.
