Sad, if this dude had any common sense he woulda been rich, dude blew all his cash on stupid stuff and didnt invest any or prepare for his kids.
He deserves everything he got.
Last night I watched the ESPN "30 for 30" film "Broke". (Thanks to "Check Hooks" for the link.) While the documentary focused on former NFL players, they also touched on other sports stars. Holyfield was among those with the most outrageous lifestyles. His 54,000 sq. ft. (!) mansion included two bowling alleys. (Two bowling alleys? lol) He has (at least) eleven children from six different women.
Evander truly has an outsized appetite, and he's only beginning to suffer the consequences of his gluttony. But, while I agree that Holyfield has made his bed, there's no need to be quite so callous about his fate. He handled his fame and fortune stupidly, but he's far from being alone. A great preponderance of professional athletes go broke at a young age. Who's to say how many of us wouldn't do the same in their shoes?
