Evander Holyfield just barely avoided going to jail today for being late on his child support. The former heavyweight champion, who has faced financial hardships recently, paid over $9,000 in back child support and signed an agreement to meet his other obligations (i.e. private school tuition, health insurance and paying for a college fund) within the month.
The agreement gets Holyfield out of legal hot water.
In the past month, Holyfield has faced a foreclosure on his 54,000 square-foot palace in Fayette County. He has also been sued for an alleged $500,000 loan that he is accused of not re-paying.
Sadder still, the 45-year-old vows he will continue boxing and become undisputed champion once again, despite the fact he hasn’t beaten a major fighter since John Ruiz in 2000. (Source)
Message to Evander…. no more boxing. Try selling real estate or sumthing. You may want to start with the mansion. Just a thought. 😕
