There have been a number of stars over the years who have gone on to make an absolute fortune, before then losing everything and finding themselves back at square one. One such star, who has possibly lost more money than anybody else in the world of entertainment, is former heavyweight boxing world champion Evander Holyfield.
Over the course of his boxing career, Evander Holyfield was involved in some of the biggest and best fights in boxing, making around an estimated $230m along the way. However, Evander Holyfield lost his fortune and ended up having to sell off, not only his home, but also a whole host of memorabilia. So how exactly did Evander Holyfield lose all his money?
Well, surprisingly enough, it was not in the same way as many people and not exactly how you might expect. Evander Holyfield has never really been the flashy show off with all the bling. Unfortunately for the star, he put too much trust in others and agreed to some very poor business deals which, once they went wrong cost him a fortune.
As well as poor business dealings, Evander Holyfield also had three very expensive divorces and has 12 children that he has had to pay for over the years. Then there is the fact that he gave a huge percentage of his earnings to the church, as well as some tax issues along the way. It all adds up and, eventually, Evander Holyfield found himself in financial turmoil.
Most recently, Evander Holyfield entered the Celebrity Big Brother house, where he has already caused controversy with anti-gay remarks, which have led to calls for him to be evicted. We would love to see Evander Holyfield back to his best sometime soon but it looks like a long journey for a man who will forever be remembered as a heavyweight great.
