At the height of his career, Evander Holyfield not only kept busy in the ring, he was also getting busy in other parts of his life. The boxer, who has 11 children, recently filed to have his child support reduced. In the filing, Holyfield claimed that his income has been reduced substantially and that he cannot afford the child support payments for at least one of his kids. But this is not the first time he has had trouble in child support court, or in other areas of his financial life.
Holyfield also had a $10 million dollar estate that went into foreclosure in 2008, and has been sued by several companies for not making payments that were owed to them. As a result, he is engaged in the sad and humiliating task of trying to maintain his boxing career at the age of 45. When are we going to learn the lessons of Joe Louis, Mike Tyson and Muhammad Ali?
