Vinny Paz may lose home in foreclosure

News

WARWICK, R.I. (AP/WPRI) — The Rhode Island home of five-time world boxing champion Vinny Paz is set to go up for auction following a foreclosure.

According to a legal notice, Paz’s Warwick home is scheduled for auction on May 30. There are federal and state tax liens on the property.

A check of the Division of Taxation’s website shows Paz is on the state’s list of Top 100 Income Tax Deliquents, owing $375,483 in back state taxes.

According to the auction listing, anyone wanting to bid on the Tivoli Court home will need $5,000 in cash, certified check, or bank check.

The 55-year-old retired boxer was arrested twice earlier this year. He was charged with assaulting a friend in January. He pleaded no contest in March to assaulting his girlfriend.

Paz is known for his comeback after he broke his neck in a car crash. His story was dramatized in the 2016 film “Bleed for This,” starring Miles Teller.
