Did Evander Holyfield Hit His Wife?

Evander_holyfield All domestic violence is terrible. All of it. So why am I always more offended when a boxer is charged with hitting his spouse?

Oh, right. Because they are trained fighters. They punch other large men for a living.

This is why I am mortified that Evander Holyfield's wife has filed a protective order against him.

This quote from Candi Holyfield makes me sick to my stomach.

I pulled the covers over my head and he said I was being disrespectful. He started telling me that I needed to start putting God first in my life. He asked me if I had been tithing. He wanted me to show him the check stubs of my payments to the church. I told him I was not going to show them to him. He then hit me in the face, the back of my head twice and in my back. I tried to get up and he told me not to get out of bed. He got up and turned the light on and started looking at my face and told me he was sorry that he knew he shouldn’t have done that.

That doesn't sound like something that should happen to people. That sounds like an excerpt from a novel from Oprah's Book Club.

Shame on you Mr. Holyfield. Like Uncle Ben said in Spider-Man: "Remember, with great power. comes great responsibility."

Goon Squad Sarah  cannot believe she just quoted Spider-Man to Evander Holyfield.

I always think about the wives of professional boxers and MMA fighters. I know for a fact that I could never marry one of them. I would always be worried about pissing them off.

But... he said he was sorry. And we all know when an abuser apologizes, he totally means it and almost always never does it again.

Wait, he hit his wife over a question about money to CHURCH?!?!?

And, seriously, his fists should be seen as a weapon---they probably do as much damage as a baseball bat.

Damn right, you shouldn't have done that. Idiot.

@fairlyoddmother I think there is a special place in hell for that.

This post makes me sick.

Well, not the post, but the facts in the post. You know what I mean.

I am sick to my stomach, just imagining the fear this woman felt. Like you, I believe domestic violence whether it's directed towards men or women is always wrong. But to see someone that you know can kill you with his fist coming straight at you? That poor woman must have been scared to death.

Katya

On the plus side, she should have extra legal protection because there is legal precedent for adding assault with a weapon charges to cases that involve professional fighters.

Good. Really.

Sent from my new and improved iPhone. Suckers.
