London, Feb. 14 (ANI): Boxing great Evander Holyfield has agreed to undergo marriage counselling after his wife accused him of hitting her when an argument broke between them over her payments to their church.

Candi Holyfield has agreed to put talk of a divorce on hold and try to lift the restraining order she has against him, the New York Post reports.

Candi, who is Holyfield's third wife, obtained an order barring him from coming within 500 yards of her after she said he hit her in the face, back of the head and back on the night of Feb. 1.

She said he attacked her in their 10 million dollars mansion in Fayetteville, Ga., after they argued about the size of donations she made to their church.

Candi, who has two children with Holyfield, said in court papers that he had choked and hit her on previous occasions last year. (ANI)
