If Evander Holyfield doesn’t pay up, he could lose the right to drive. Holyfield was put on a payment plan to cover over $500,000 in child support for his daughter Emani. The boxer has been missing monthly payments of $2,950 and still owes $327,858.36, according to TMZ. The Division of Child Support Services has been given approval by a Georgia judge to the start the process of taking away Holyfield’s driver’s license as incentive to pay the child support. Holyfield has a hearing in August to check on the progress of his debt. BusinessPundit.com estimated that Holyfield has earned $250 million during his boxing career. He got $34 million for his fight with Mike Tyson in 1997. Photo via Facebook/Evander Holyfield Fan Page

  • Everyone needs to pay their child support they are your children and need to be supported both monetarily and by spending quality time with them .

  • most of these see you next time trap these athletes and treat it as a lottery winfall. They now don't have to get a job and get off their lazy @#$#s and making the child support as their income. WTF. Something should be done to these w@$#$%.
  • What kind of moron writes the links for these pages? The link at MSN said "Holyfield punished for child support." When the REALITY is, "Holyfield punished for LACK of child support."

    Why do these people still have jobs? If I did MY job that poorly I'd be out on my butt within weeks!
  • The same kind of moron "journalist" who thinks this is actually news worthy of bandwidth. Anyone with a brain knows that holyfield is a brain dead moron. He's a worthless piece of garbage. Forget his drivers license. Throw his useless carcass in jail and force him to work.
  • he probably pissed most of it away like mike tyson did. he'll be paying for that kid till she's 40.
  • What a scumbag Holyfield is!!!!
  • Holyfield I thought you was a better man boxing but now i think you are a loser having millions of dollars being a father, not taking ownership as a man making a future for your children.
  • All theses Boxers a loser. Look all of the black boxer like him and Mike T., Mike S. and so many other are just gang banger they do not have the brains to be normal.
  • boy...its one thing to be a bum or a laid off dad that cant pay but when you've made millions and can't set aside child support thats blatant. Is this a culture thing....?
  • Foreman was one of the few who many a ton of money and was a smart and caring man. One like him are few and far between
  • Holyfield isn't exactly what you'd call the sharpest knife in the drawer. He's fathered so many children I doubt he can count that high. Instead of taking away his driver's license, he'll just drive without one, he should be put in jail. He is notorious for not taking care off his children via child support. The man is a worthless POS.
  • Evander Holyfield , as my father would call your Ni++er-Rich...You blew fricken $10 mill a year on WHAT ???? Ni++er and now can't pay child support ! They should throw your lame ass in the clink for ...say 10 years..Nig....
  • talk about needing to go for a little anger management...... chill out a little
  • How freaking much does it cost to raise a child?? You know damn well that money is not going to that child. Child support laws are ridiculous.
  • You people make me sick. Do you really think he pissed away all his money? I will bet a bunch of lawyers and investment crooks filled their pockets with his money. Taking away his drivers license is almost as stupid as putting someone in prison for not paying child support. How are you going to pay anyone if you are prison or can't drive to some kind of work. You can also bet that the IRS gets it's piece of the action before the see one dime. I would like to see Holyfield kick the **** out of most of you.
  • I left a post saying what a bunch of ass holes you people are but it didn't get posted.
  • Damm, I was out of work and hurt for a couple years but paid child support whenever I worked!
  • Another piece of ****, LOSER dead beat DAD..... Screw him put his ass in jail for 2 years and take the money and give it to his child.... what thinks he's above it all... L O S E R... BIG TIME L O S E R...................
  • evander holyfeild is a good dude! I feel sorry for the people that have taken advantage of him and his kindness! such as the churches he pretty much built for Atlanta pastors!no child need $2,950 dollars a month to live on! the woman needs to get off her behind and work as well.she is tryibg to live off him! I hope he wethers the storm,its no need to take man drivers licsense from him. everybody is greedy!
  • Holyfield is uneducated, has surrounded himself with people that have used him, is obviously unable to wrap it up. He has 11 children with how many baby mama's. Just ridiculous. His career is over so shame on him and all those willing participants who had babies with him, your free ride is over biotches!
