Evander Holyfield's wife files for protective order

Evander Holyfield is back in the news today, as his 47-year-old wife Candi Holyfield has filed for a protective order against the former world heavyweight champion. A spokeswoman for the couple says everything is peachy keen, but spokespeople say lots of things.

Mrs. Holyfield claims that Evander performed "a violent act against herself in the presence of the couple's two children."

It's the latest blow in a rough couple of years outside the ring for Holyfield, also 47. "The Real Deal" had problems in 2008 when Washington Mutual Bank attempted to foreclose on his house, and later in the year he was sued by Toi Irvin, the mother of one of his children.

Holyfield was last in the boxing news when he was said to be fighting Francois Botha in Uganda in January, which was later postponed until this month and then completely called off. Holyfield has been rumored to be ready to get back in action with some other fight. He's been out of the ring since a dreadful and controversial December 2008 loss to Nikolai Valuev.

Neither Mr. or Mrs. Holyfield had any comment at last report.
