ATLANTA (AP) -- Former heavyweight champion Evander Holyfield has
reached agreement in a child-support case, avoiding a court hearing
that could have led to a call for jail time.

Randy Kessler, attorney for the mother of Holyfield's
10-year-old son, said Wednesday the boxer paid $9,000 in back child
support and agreed to meet his other financial obligations within a
month, including private school payments, health insurance and a
college trust fund.

Holyfield, working to resolve his financial problems, also
agreed to pay some of the attorney fees for Kessler's client, Toi
Irvin. The agreement was reached before a scheduled deposition and
two days before a court hearing, at which Kessler was planning to
ask for jail time if Holyfield didn't pay up.
