The current wife of former world champion boxer Evander Holyfield has filed for a temporary protective order against him after he allegedly struck her in the face, RadarOnline.com can exclusively reveal.

Candi Holyfield — Holyfield’s third wife — called the police after the couple got into a fight at their home in Georgia last week.

In the court papers Candi alleges that her famous husband got into a fight with her after she complained that it was too cold in the middle of the night at their massive Georgia mansion on Feb 1 at 4:45 am.

She claimed that the heat was cut off in their mansion and that after taking their children to the bathroom in the middle of the night, she tried to talk to Holyfield about the house being too cold.

“He told me I was only thinking about myself, the children’s hearts beat faster,” she wrote in the restraining order.  

Candi claims that their fight left her with a black eye and that she is scared to be around him now.

“Evander has not spoken with the police yet and they have a court date for February 18, 2010.”
