On Tuesday Evander Holyfield Loses Millions On Mansion Auction was a top story. Here is the recap: (TMZ) Good news: Boxing legend Evander Holyfield recently sold his house for $7,500,000!!!
Bad news: It was at a public auction, he actually owes the bank twice that amount ... and he also owes over $200,000 in back taxes.
According to docs filed in Georgia, Holyfield's massive mansion -- 54,000 sq. ft on 234 acres -- outside Atlanta sold at public auction on March 6 ... but part of the money will go directly to Uncle Sam to pay off his back tax bill.
