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.
Last year, JPMorgan Chase & Co., bought the 48,327 square-foot home in foreclosure for a cool $7.5 million.
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:
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.
