Former heavyweight champ Evander Holyfield evicted from Georgia mansion
Former heavyweight champion Evander Holyfield was evicted from his suburban Atlanta mansion yesterday.
Holyfield has been staying in the palatial estate after foreclosure proceedings saw it sold to JP Morgan Chase for $7.5 million.
Chase spokesman Greg Hassell stated to the Atlanta Journal Constitution that they were working with the champ throughout the process.
“We’ve worked with Mr. Holyfield to give him several months to move; he’s in the process of relocating and we’ve brought in additional resources to move the process forward,” Hassell said.
Holyfield owed more than $14 million on the house which includes federal taxes.
Holyfield’s representative Tony Tortorici recently stated that when it comes to money Holyfield’s situation is a tangled web of issues.
“Evander Holyfield’s personal financial situation is complicated,” Tortorici said. “He and his closest friends and advisers are working together to resolve these issues as quickly as possible.”
