Evander Holyfield

Faces Jail Time for

$300k Child Support Debt

Evander Holyfield is staring down some jail time if he doesn't cough up more than $300k in unpaid child support, TMZ has learned.

The GA. Dept. of Human Services has gone to court on behalf of Evander's 18-year-old daughter Emani Holyfield ... claiming the former champ hasn't paid a dime of court ordered child support since April 2010, and his tab is now $372,097.40.

The DHS is fed up with the waiting game ...  so it's asking a judge to lock up Holyfield and garnish his wages until he antes up the back support.

Evander's rep tells TMZ she was unaware of the situation but added, "Mr. Holyfield has a wonderful relationship with his daughter."

Love don't pay the bills.

Calling him a "deadbeat dad" because he's only managed to give his kids $10,000 a month for only several years... wish my dad was that "deadbeat." I think the kids will be jusssssst fine, folks...

Holyfield has major brain damage from fighting-he still continues to fight today. His speech is all slurred and he doesn't think properly. Although, this behaviour describes mike tyson BEFORE he started fighting.

He could earn money if he set up some sort of booth where people could put on a glove and sock him for a nominal fee, let's call it a punching booth.

Im sorry but most of you are morons and have no clue how the child support system works. No way in hell it takes 300 k to support a kid for two years. Its not support its called the government sticking it to dads and killing fathers relationships with their kids. Don't speak on the issue and call him and other dads deadbeats if you don't know what your talking about. Money cant buy a fathers love, it just makes single parent women and feminist more happy
