Atlanta. 170 acres, 54,000 sq feet. Cost him $20 million to build. Said he wanted a giant house so all his kids and grandkids could live in it or stay in it at times. Guess he never figured his family might not want to live there forever or that on 170 acres he could build a few guest homes that would be easier to maintain and resell than a 54,000 sq foot monster. Ended up selling it to the fake Rick Ross for $5 million.

Prizefighters have to be more famous than anyone for foolish financial decisions involving homes, women, cars, and investments.

That being said I'm sure he is sitting pretty and working stiffs like me don't need to concern ourselves with things like this. Him losing $15 mil is like me losing 5k.

Utilities would probably be more than I could afford

Damn I didn't know about Holyfield losing it all. He has 11 kids with 6 baby mommas, three became wives. IRS came after him with tax liens. I'm sure those women went after him hard for everything they could get as well. They say he managed to lose $230 million but that number is thrown around because that was what he made in fight purse over his career.

Seems to think God has his back on this.

"Losing everything was hard," says Holyfield. "The only way I got through it was to think 'God allowed me to have that house, he'll allow me to have another one. The Bible says 'the second half of your life is going to be better than the first half'. I made $230m in the first half, so I've still got reasons to live."

According to this website: https://smartasset.com/taxes/georgia-property-tax-calculator#gbS0eyrUgg

and the zip code it defaulted to, a $5mil house in Georgia would have about $59,000/yr in property taxes. So about $4,900 per month just for taxes.

Also, the amount of women who left that house having a difficult time sitting must be in the thousands.

I doubt it. I bet his wife/girlfriend of the moment was always living there with some of his kids so he would have to bang his sidepieces at other homes he owned as well as hotels while he was on the road for this or that.

That is an absurd sized pool! How much do you think it cost to fill that thing up?

A regular sized pool would look even more ridiculous no?

That’s a reality show I would watch.

Damn, his own 18 year old daughter was suing him for child support at one point and his first wife divorced him after two years because he had to kids outside the marriage in that time. Ended up having to auction everything including his Olympic medal.

Dude was addicted to new pussy.
