Ex-heavyweight champion Evander Holyfield's former home is on the auction block, and if you have a few million lying around and don't mind living in Atlanta, this might be a listing for you.

The home was built in 1994, the same year that Holyfield lost his WBA and IBF heavyweight titles to Michael Moorer. Holyfield struggled to maintain it after he fell out of the limelight and was no longer earning eight-figure paydays a fight.

He reportedly once said the home cost $1 million a year to maintain.

The home is listed on Auction.com and bidding was at $3 million late Tuesday. The asking price for the home, before it was put up for auction, was $7.89 million.

What will you get for your money? Well, the home has the following features:


  • 48,327 square feet of living space.
  • 104.7-acre lot.
  • 12 bedrooms.
  • 13 full bathrooms and 8 half bathrooms.
  • An indoor bowling alley.
  • A handball court.
  • A lighted baseball field with electric scoreboard.
  • One of the largest private swimming pools in the country, which holds 365,000 gallons of water.
  • An indoor lap pool.
  • A formal dining room with seating for more than 100.

The home is a tribute to excess in every manner conceivable.*It can be yours if you're the high bidder, though be warned: Bidding ends on Wednesday.

So get your bid in promptly and invite your 100 closest friends over for a nice holiday meal in your new home.
