evander-candi-holyfield.jpgCandi Holyfield, the wife of boxing great Evander, has filed a order of protection against her husband.

The case, filed last week in a Georgia court, involves "a family violence .. protective order."

Court documents include accusations against the 47-year-old Holyfield, including claims that he choked, hit and threw a bottle of water at her. This all allegedly took place in front of the couple's children when a discussion about the home heating situation went awry.

"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," Candi Holyfield stated in the petition.

The incident allegedly began because the heat was cut off in the couple's home, and Candi Holyfield attempted to discuss it with her husband.

"He told me that I was only thinking about myself," Candi Holyfield stated. "He started telling me that I needed to start putting God first in my life."

The Holyfields wed in 2003 and have two children together.
