Evander Holyfield Moves Out Of Foreclosed Home


Evander Holyfield

Retired boxer Evander Holyfield has been forced to move out of his Georgia home after failing to reach a deal with bank bosses over the foreclosed property.

The financially-strapped former heavyweight champion lost control of the house, which is located just outside of Atlanta, after falling behind on his mortgage payments and it was sold to another bank for $7.5 million (£4.69 million) in a public auction in March (12).

Holyfield had reportedly been trying to work out an arrangement with the new owners, but the negotiations appear to have fallen through after moving trucks were seen retrieving the old sportsman's belongings from the property, according to Tmz.com.

The embattled star had racked up mortgage debts of over $14 million (£8.75 million) prior to the foreclosure, while he also owed money to U.S. tax officials.

Justin Bieber thinks he could take One Direction in a fight.

Although the 'Boyfriend' hitmaker knows he couldn't beat the boy band if they all attacked him as a group, he is confident he could hold his own individually against Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson and Liam Payne.

He is quoted as saying: ''I'd get my ass kicked (against all of them). But one-on-one I'd take them. I'd try a spin-kick. To the face.''

Mike Tyson Evander Holyfield 1997

Former boxer Mike Tyson wants to sit down with Evander Holyfield and apologise properly for biting off a piece of the fighter's ear.

The heavyweight champ was banned from the ring and vilified for chomping down on Holyfield during a 1997 grudge match, and during an interview on U.S. TV show Oprah on Monday (12Oct09), Tyson confessed he never sincerely said sorry to his former opponent for his moment of madness.

He explained, "I apologised to him... but it wasn't sincere... Everybody in my crew was getting on my nerves, so I said, 'OK, I apologise'.

"I just always wanted to have a place to sit down and talk to him and shake his hand and express myself to him. When I see him sometimes, he's a little leery of me... it's not the good energy.
