However, managing significant quantities of money is quite challenging. People who are affluent typically inherit it from their parents, who taught them how to properly handle their wealth. But many legendary boxers failed at it. Notably, Iron Mike, who declared bankruptcy in 2003, is one of the most well-known figures in this case.

Additionally, he earned millions of dollars during his career, much like his opponent Tyson who paid $34 million for the Bite Fight, increasing his net worth to approximately $560 million over the course of his lengthy boxing career.

Interestingly, Holyfield’s legendary reputation is not just similar to Tyson’s in that, in 2008, he was compelled to sell his 109-room house because of financial issues. Holyfield has also had three divorces and a few unsuccessful business enterprises, not to mention having to pay child support.
