WHEN Mike Tyson was declared bankrupt in 2003, he was forced to sell up.

With reported debts of £17million, his prized home in Connecticut was one of his first possessions to be sacrificed.

And it would’ve been a bitter pill for the 54-year-old to swallow, looking at the mega mansion.

Boasting 52 rooms, including 21 bedrooms, as well as its own nightclub the property is as lavish as Tyson has ever owned.

But it was needs must for the heavyweight boxing legend, and in came rapper 50 Cent who bought it from him for £3.3million the same year it was revealed he blew his fortune.


When the In da Club singer bought the house from Tyson, it set a record for the most expensive home ever sold in the area of Farmington – and it’s easy to see why.

Along with those 21 bedrooms we mentioned earlier, the 50,000-square-foot abode has a 25 bathrooms, an indoor pool and hot tub, an indoor court, multiple game rooms, a green-screen room, and a recording studio.

And the opulence doesn’t end there.

Entering the property through a stately front gate, you’re greeted by a lion statue.

Walking into the home on the marble floor, a duelling wood-panelled staircase leads you to another level of the property.

As can be seen, the decor is as lavish as it gets throughout the property.

The master bedroom has a scenic view of the garden landscape.

From there, you have your own steel staircase that leads to another floor that features a massive walk-in closet with glass doors, so you can see your designer wardrobe.

One of the many en-suites has a huge bathtub that overlooks the gardens, and it also features a glass door shower.


The home is fit for someone who loves having friends round.

There are outdoor and indoor basketball courts that complete the recreational feel to the property.

There’s a room with pool tables, and another games room with poker and roulette tables – meaning you’ll never have to go to Las Vegas again.

Next to the outdoor basketball court is a pond that has an elaborate water feature spouting out and a guesthouse.

However, this property does have a chequered history in sales.

Over the years, the property has dropped in value rapidly – mostly because of its running costs that 50 cent complained cost him around £50,000-per-month.

In fact, it was on the market for 12 years – starting at £14million before it was finally sold last year for just £2.3million – an 84 per cent price drop.

“It’s just oversized for the market,” estate agent Jonathan Miller told

“When you have a property that is well outside the norm, it takes a lot longer to sell.”

In the end, it was reportedly snapped up by US businessman Casey Askar, who owns several fast-food businesses.

Another of Mike Tyson’s amazing homes, complete with cages for his tigers, was left abandoned before it was converted into a church.

The 54-year-old now has everything back on track as he prepares for his comeback fight against Roy Jones Jr on September 12.
