Evander Holyfield Finalizes His Divorce
Former heavyweight champion Evander Holyfield is finally getting a divorce from his wife, Candi Holyfield. The divorce has been finalized, and comes in the middle of very serious financial problems for the fighter. Evander has declared bankruptcy this year, had his mansion foreclosed upon and even sold his Olympic medal.
Candi filed for divorce in 2010 after putting out a restraining order on her husband. She claimed that he hit her in the head, neck and back during a domestic dispute.
According to Candi, the alleged abuse was part of an on-going theme inside the marriage.
“In 2008 he choked me in front of our daughter and house keeper. In 2009 he has hit me in front of the children. He has grabbed me in front of the children. A couple of weeks ago he threw a bottle of water at me,” she said.
Maybe now, Evander can get the rest of his life together and try to get out of financial trouble. If George Foreman can make a comeback, so can he.
