    Between Mike Tyson $300 million and Evander's $250 million thats over 1/2 Billion dollars fucked away. Tyson was just plain crazy between drugs, women, Don King and the scum that hung around him that bled him dry. Evander Holyfield was always known to be cheap. His money was not absconded by his managers. His problem was too many Baby Mamas. Still he always seemed intelligent and not the kind of person to piss away a 1/4 Billion dollars. It boggles the mind how that much money disappears. That was pre-tax earning so Uncle Sam got a lot of it. If Evander made conservative low risk investments no matter how much he pays in child support he would still have a ton of money left.

    Evander Holyfield was one of the great boxing stars of the 1990s and amassed more than a quarter of a billion dollars in purses during his illustrious career. Apparently, though, $250 million doesn't go as far as it used to.
    Holyfield, who filed bankruptcy in Fayette County, Ga., in 2008, reportedly owes in excess of $372,000 in child support and may wind up in jail if he does not resolve the issue, according to a TMZ report.
    [​IMG]Evander Holyfield's right ear was bitten by Mike Tyson in 1997 (AP)In both 2008 and 2009, his massive 54,000 square-foot home in Fairburn, Ga., went into foreclosure. The home, which sits on 104 acres, has 109 rooms, including 17 bathrooms, three kitchens and a bowling alley. He's had numerous financial issues in the years since.
    On Saturday, TMZ reported that the Georgia Department of Human Services has gone to court on behalf of Holyfield's 18-year-old daughter. It alleged he owes $372,097.40 in child support that has gone unpaid since April 2010. According to a 2009 report in the Atlanta Journal Constitution, Holyfield has child support payments of more than $500,000 a year. He has at least 11 children.
    Yahoo! Sports was unable to reach Holyfield Saturday. A spokesman told TMZ she was unaware of the situation, but did say there was no discord in the family.
    Mr. Holyfield has a wonderful relationship with his daughter.
    Holyfield, 49, once earned $34 million for a rematch with Mike Tyson in 1997, the so-called "Bite Fight," in which Tyson bit off the tip of one of Holyfield's ears. Holyfield has yet to announce his retirement, but hasn't fought since stopping Brian Nielsen on May 7, 2011, in Copenhagen, Denmark.

    Who needs a house that big?

    I wonder how much of his money was wasted on his "entourage"...

    I laughed out loud at the post refering to Holyfield as "intelligent". Have you heard the man speak?
