Step Inside Mike Tyson’s Abandoned Mansion In Ohio

It is very hard for me to imagine how a once beautiful mansion can be left abandoned with no real interest in the property. I mean, it has an indoor pool, basketball court, tennis court and a huge, open layout. Oh, and did I mention it once belonged to boxing champion Mike Tyson’s mansion too!

Things were not always so good for Iron Mike, who was jailed in 1992 for rape and went to jail again in 1999 on assault charges, after which he was broke and struggling. Because of his financial problems, Tyson was forced to sell his 19,500-square-foot mansion on 58 acres in Southington, Ohio, where he’d lived since the 1980s.

Let’s take a tour of this immense property and the weird things that were found inside.

Here is the general layout of the property.

The famous mansion is now being turned into a church.
