Take a look inside Mike Tyson’s abandoned mansion (PICTURES)

The spacious home in Southington, Ohio, was owned by heavyweight champion boxer Mike Tyson who lived there during the late 1980s and 1990s until his dramatic fall from grace following a conviction for rape and financial problems. Featuring gold-plated furnishings, a mirrored ceiling jacuzzi and a swimming pool twice the size of the average family home, Tyson, now 48, used the property as a base while training for fights at Don King’s facility 20 miles away in nearby Orwell.

It features five bedrooms, several living spaces, seven and a half bathrooms, a full kitchen, a mini-kitchen/washroom, two attached garages, one external garage, full size pool and Jacuzzi, tiger cages and a basketball court. Tyson decked out the mansion with crystal chandeliers, a pool larger than most homes, tiger print carpet and everything else necessary to make it his private party pad. But now the property lies eerily quiet with just the shell of what was once home to the youngest boxer to win the WBC, WBA and IBF heavyweight titles at age 20.
