SOUTHINGTON, Ohio — Ever wanted to see inside an abandoned multimillion-dollar mansion?
The retired professional boxer lived in the mansion in the 1980s and early 1990s. Tyson chose Southington to live close to his trainer.
As I wandered the halls and rooms of this large vacant space, I could only imagine the wild parties that must have taken place within these walls. There I stood, looking across a living room that was once full of life, but now remains empty of parties, tigers or celebrities. It was odd to think that I was staring down a place the famous Mike Tyson once called home.
Joo said the home had a pool bigger than some houses, crystal chandeliers and tiger-print carpet.
The mansion, once worth millions, sold in 1999 for a reported $1.3 million. The current owners told Joo they plan to turn Tyson’s mansion into a church.AlertMe
