Mike Tyson once owned a spectacular mansion in Ohio, but had to give up and eventually sell the property due to his financial problems. Mike Tyson’s abandoned mansion was finally sold for £ 870,000 in 1999. Mike Tyson’s house has now been turned into the home of the Living Word Sanctuary church. Living Word pastor Nicholas DeJacimo said Mike Tyson’s abandoned mansion had not been touched for 10 years and there was enough grass to sell for hay, in an interview with the Warren Tribune-Chronique.
Mike Tyson House: How the abandoned Ohio mansion became a church
Living Word Church has made multiple changes to the sprawling mansion that once served as Mike Tyson’s not-so-humble home. The battered pool has been converted into a sanctuary while the living room has been transformed to serve as a gathering place. The old fireplace has been replaced by a water fountain, while the garages are now used as nurseries and classrooms. The Mike Tyson Tiger cages, where he kept his four tigers, were demolished to make way for a pavilion. The church bears the footsteps of Mike Tyson, with his basketball court still intact. In its heyday, the Mike Tyson home had five bedrooms, a full-size pool and hot tub beside its tiger cages and basketball court, with the entire residence adorned with crystal chandeliers.
