Real Deal That Holyfield Is Broke?

There has been recent articles on the Internet stating that former heavyweight boxing champion Evander "Real Deal" Holyfield was in financial troubles. This was mainly do to his $10 million estate in suburban Atlanta being under foreclosure, and Toi Irvin, mother of one of his children, stating that Holyfield has missed 2 of his child support payments.

But, recently Holyfield has stated, "I'm not broke. I'm just not liquid." Holyfield's attorney has also confirmed that his house is no longer up for auction as of Thursday (6/5/08) morning.

Even if he isn't completely broke, did his desire to continue fighting at his age have more to do with his financial issues than anything else? Possibly, but even though he did not defeat Sultan Ibragimov last year, I do think he did a very good job against him compared to what I thought would occur. As long as he's in good health he should be allowed to fight on even if it is for more economic reasons. I just don't think he's going to be quite at that level at his age to become a world champion again.
