Atlanta, Georgia (CNN) -- Candi Holyfield, the wife of former heavyweight boxing champ Evander Holyfield, has filed for a temporary protective order against her husband, court records show.
The case was filed last week in Fayette County, Georgia, Superior court, according to the Web site for the county clerk's office.
The listing said the case involves a "family violence ... protective order," but provided no additional details.
The court documents also alleged other acts of violence, including choking, hitting and throwing a bottle of water at her.
Holyfield, 47, is a four-time heavyweight boxing champion with estimated winnings of more than $200 million.
Over the summer, his $10 million home in Fayette County went into foreclosure, but was pulled from the auction block at the last minute.
