Good news: Boxing legend Evander Holyfield recently sold his house for $7,500,000!!!
Bad news: It was at a public auction, he actually owes the bank twice that amount … and he also owes over $200,000 in back taxes.
According to docs filed in Georgia, Holyfield’s massive mansion — 54,000 sq. ft on 234 acres — outside Atlanta sold at public auction on March 6 … but part of the money will go directly to Uncle Sam to pay off his back tax bill.
As for the rest … according to the documents, Holyfield owed more than $14,000,000 on the house — plus more than $2500 in foreclosure expenses. It’s unclear whether the bank is going after him for the balance.
Calls to Holyfield’s rep were not returned.
