Holyfield’s ex presses for child support

Toi Irvin in danger of losing home, lawyer writes

The lawyer for the mother of one of Evander Holyfield’s children claimed his client could lose her house to foreclosure if the former heavyweight boxing champion does not make good on $9,000 in missed child support payments.

In a letter, Randall Kessler wrote that Toi Irvin needs $5,800 to prevent losing her home in Clayton County — a home she shares with her and Holyfield’s 10-year-old son. Irvin claims Holyfield has missed three consecutive child support payments.

Additionally, the letter said, “Recently she learned that Mr. Holyfield refused to continue to pay for the private school her son attended as he had agreed to do. Last week after a visit to the doctor for her child, the doctor told her that Mr. Holyfield’s insurance was no longer in effect for the child.”

Holyfield and his attorney, Frederick Gardner, could not be reached for comment Thursday afternoon.

A July 11 court hearing has been scheduled on the matter.
