FAYETTEVILLE, Ga. – Former heavyweight champion Evander Holyfield appears to be having financial problems.
A legal notice that appeared in a local newspaper shows his Fayette County estate is under foreclosure. The home worth an estimated $10 million is set to be auctioned by a bank on July 1.
The mother of one of Holyfield's nine children says he has missed two child-support payments. Toi Irvin, who lives in Clayton County, filed a petition for contempt in Fayette County Superior Court on behalf of her 10-year-old son.
Irvin says she was told by Holyfield's representatives not to expect the payment for May and June totaling $6,000.
The 45-year-old Holyfield has declined comment on the child-support allegations and the foreclosure.
