See The Inside Of Mike Tyson’s Deserted Mansion

In his two decades in the ring, Iron Mike Tyson made nearly $400 million, including payouts of up to $30 million for a single fight.  His lifestyle showcased that wealth through his purchases of mansions, expensive cars, and even Bengal tigers.  In 2004, after years of spending, lawsuits, divorce settlements, and money mismanagement, Tyson filed for bankruptcy.  He was $23 million in debt, owing $17 million in taxes, $750,000 to to lawyers, and even $300,000 for limo services.

One of Tyson’s high-roller purchases had been a mansion in Southington, Ohio, where he lived during the 80’s and 90’s.  It was a 5-bedroom, 60 acre property with an indoor pool, basket ball court and on-site tiger cages.  He lost ownership of it in the late 90’s.  In 2007, urban explorers IllicitOhio.com paid a visit and took the first series of images below.  The second set was taken more recently by photographer Johnny Joo, and show the increased state of disrepair that the house has fallen under.
