ATLANTA (AP) -- Former Heavyweight Champion of the World Evander Holyfield had always figured he would escape the day he would lose his 54,000 square-foot mansion.
But that day came last week when a Fayette County deputy knocked on the door and told him he had 15 minutes to leave the 235-acre compound.
Holyfield told the Atlanta Journal Constitution that the mansion meant a lot to him. He said he always figured he would somehow be able to keep the home even as his finances were falling apart.
The home has 11-bedrooms, 17 bathrooms, three kitchens, a two-lane bowling alley and a 135-seat theater.
Holyfield told the AJC that he was a boxer and not a businessman.
He said he paid over $100 million in taxes and numerous child support payments.
