    Default Evander Holyfield: this is a sad end.

    Quite a sad end to such a glorious career, and by sad end, I do not mean the retirement but what comes with it:

    Boxing is seldom a sport with happy endings. Even the greatest champs lose. Teddy Atlas has a great line in which he says "You always come out a weaker man out of that ring." I tend to agree with him.

    just scanned the article but this stuck out.... "109 rooms and 17 bathrooms" FFS who needs that many rooms and bathrooms, its just madness

    I thought his worth was over 100 mill around the Tyson days and to lost that amount is just shocking tbh

    I don't shed much sympathy over a case like his honestly, though I didn't read the article. He obviously fought on way to long and has taken tonnes of punishment over the years, but he also made the choice to live like a king and and have a thousand kids with different women while pretending to be some devout religious type. He'll probably be able to declare bankruptcy and be of perfectly reasonable means from here on, whether he has his marbles(or ever did really) is another case of course.

    The guy did earn more money than Tyson, 350 millions.... What's shocking is not that much that he does lose a meta-mansion with 17 bathrooms but that he goes from... well, haing 350 millions to totally ruined in a very humble flat in Atlanta on top of the health problems he starts to experience because of boxing. Sure, getting married 3 times is perhaps not the smartest thing to do when you know that many women will hunt you down solely for money, he took bad decisions to arrive there but still... I always have a bit of a sadness when a great one experiences such fall

    I think most people forget , these guys who box are generally pretty low in the brains department , overkill , live like kings and then end up with nothing. Most people would give anything to have the chance of having $100.000.000 , he had his money he blew it , i dont think anything is sad about that at all.

    Yes a sad end that we all saw coming years ago. But I have no sympathy at all.

    I know Tyson seems much happier now from what I seen - not sure how Evander will fare mentally.

    Such a great champion will always be idolised by millions so am sure he will always be comfortable.

    Holyfield told boxingscene that he was waiting for a call from either Wlad or Vitali on Friday and if he didn't get a call he'd hang up the gloves. He said he's too old to fight his way up the rankings and just wants the biggest fight out there. Bernd Boente said the Klitschko's respect Evander far too much to fight him at this stage in his career. He also stated that either brother would be a very dangerous fight for Holyfield given his age.

    Evander should retire (should have retired looong ago) or maybe attempt to save US Amateur boxing by becoming a trainer?

    Frogs want wings so they don't bump their ass when they hope too. I have nothing but respect for Holyfield but that call, thankfully, will not come nor should it.

    Its a tough one as far as what he could do 'after' and stay affiliated with sport. I'm sure given the current state of the program he wouldn't hurt but it all needs to be stripped down and started over first. Holyfield should just make a clean and complete break from sport..take a walkabout and fall off the grid first. The guys been fighting literally his entire life. I don't know though if he leaves now feeling "incomplete or unsatisfied" that he'll be able to come into a training role without that effecting things and making it about him in a way. One things for sure, he should retire, head up and faculties intact.

    Agree and to be honest I got no sympathy at all for anyone who can spunk that kind of cash....
