It appears Rick Ross is taking a page from his rival 50 Cent’s book, and purchasing real estate from former boxing champions.

According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the Maybach Music Group general is reportedly expecting to buy four-time heavyweight champion Evander Holyfield’s former 235-acre estate located in Fayette County, Georgia for an undisclosed amount.

The lavish compound, which features 109 rooms, an olympic-size pool, and a 135-seat movie theater among other things, went onto the auction block in November with an asking price of $7.89 million.

“I rode by that property for years and I used to just look at it,” Ross recalled during an exclusive interview with Revolt TV. “If you’re a person like me that’s inspired by certain things, I felt like me acquiring that property is me speaking to some kids and giving that same passion. And them looking in my eyes, and me telling them ‘Yo, this is real.’”

The sale of Rozay’s new property is scheduled to close on Jan. 28. For more on the rapper’s reaction to his new mansion check out the clip above.
