Holyfield's Demand of 250K For Zimnoch is Rejected

By Luke Furman

Boxing legend Evander Holyfield (44-10-2, 29 KOs) is facing a lot of financial problems in the United States and requested a high purse of $250,000 dollars to face Polish prospect Krzysztof Zimnoch (15-0-1, 11 KOs) on an October card in Poland. Zimnoch's promoter rejected Holyfield's financial demand and sent him a counter-offer. Zimnoch's team is waiting to receive a response from Holyfield. It was reported last week that Holyfield was being legally pursued over a child support of over $300,000 dollars.

As far as planned parenthood and business planning, Holyfield would not do so well. He was very slow in the head when I met him in 1988 and he hasn't picked up any speed since, thats for sure.

over 300 million earned...broke? whatever...maybe he should have worn a condom while he was on top of the food chain. it's not like he couldn't afford a box. he is one of the dumbest athletes ever & has no one…
