The Champ Loses His House

In a sad coda to a brilliant career and the already-tragic squandering of a $250 million fortune, former heavyweight boxing champ Evander Holyfield is finally being forced to leave his mansion (pictured) in Fairburn following its sale at foreclosure auction for $7.5 million in March. The house was absurdly-sized (109 rooms) and a cash drain (Holyfield said it cost $1 million a year to maintain), so perhaps it's for the best. But the Champ's got bigger problems...he's also hundreds thousands of dollars behind on child support payments (he has 11 kids) and is now facing the prospect of jail time for lack of payment. [AJC]
