Mike Tyson’s incredible homes through his career, from 21-bed Connecticut mansion to an Ohio home that’s now a church

THROUGHOUT the years, as Mike Tyson rose through the ranks to become heavyweight champion of the world, the boxing legend bought and sold some incredible homes.

‘Iron Mike’ came a long way from the humble beginnings of his childhood home in Brooklyn to mansions filled with tiger cages as millions of dollars poured in.

After losing it all, Tyson, now 54, is once again worth millions after launching his company Tyson Holistic and flogging medical marijuana.

And he’s even in line for a comeback – the knockout king is set to face Roy Jones Jr in an exhibition fight on November 28.

But it’s his former homes that really amaze and show how the king of the ring loved living.

NEW YORK

Tyson spent most of his childhood years in a modest apartment in Brooklyn in Brownsville in the mid 1970s.

It was a neighbourhood, at the time, that was a breeding ground for crime and most residents lived poorly.

In the past, Tyson has admitted mixing with criminals as he looked for acceptance and joined a gang of petty thieves.

But in his spare-time in the Brownsville abode, he became fascinated by pigeons.

He kept coops on the rooftop of the building and cared for the birds religiously.

Today, apartments in the area can fetch up to £500,000.

OHIO

Tyson’s fall from grace began in 1992, when he was convicted of rape and was sentenced to six years in prison, of which he served three.

Financially drained, he was forced to sell this incredible home in 1999 for around £855,000.

Today, remarkably, it’s been converted into a church.

But in Tyson’s day it boasted five bedrooms and a full-size pool and Jacuzzi alongside its tiger cages and basketball court, with the entire pad decked out with crystal chandeliers.

The delipidated pool has since been turned into a sanctuary while the living room is now a gathering place.

Remnants of the 53-year-old’s time still remain with the basketball court still intact, as well as Mike Tyson’s name etched onto the front gate.

And the tall steel cages where Tyson kept his famous four tigers have been dismantled for a pavilion.

CONNECTICUT

In 2003, Tyson was declared bankrupt.

That meant he had to sell up again – and a 52-room mansion in Connecticut he used to live in was eventually bought by rapper 50 Cent for £3.3million.

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

The 50,000-square-foot property also has 25 bathrooms, an indoor pool and hot tub, an indoor basketball 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.

However, the running costs – believed to be around £50,000-per-month – forced 50 Cent to sell the house in 2019.

MARYLAND

Tyson’s Maryland residence was bought with ex-wife Monica Turner in 1995.

The pair lived there through the early 2000s, until the pair divorced after she claimed he committed adultery.

Turner won the house in the divorce settlement, which is just 30 minutes from Washington DC.

It features seven bedrooms, a large gym, game room, swimming pool, sports court and a piano room.

It also overlooks the Congressional Country Club golf course, which has hosted several US Open tournaments.

Back in May, the home was listed for sale at £7million.

Mike Tyson’s former Maryland home is up for sale for $8.5m (£6.4m)

THE HANGOVER PAD

In 2008, Tyson let Hollywood film director Todd Phillips into his £1.5million Las Vegas pad to film legendary scenes from the hit comedy movie.

And what a lavish setting it is too.

Found in the beautiful gated community called Seven Hills in the suburb of Henderson, it boasts six bedrooms, six-and-a-half bathrooms and its own private balcony.

There’s also the incredible 18-hole Rio Secco Golf Club to enjoy, as well as four large private parks filled with basketball courts, tennis courts and football pitches.

Like many new builds in Las Vegas within gated communities, the 5,740-square-feet mansion was built in an Italian style in 2001.

Two-storeys in size, the entrance opens to a grand reception room with a 25-foot-high lit waterfall, which connects to the great room that has a wet bar and fireplace.

Tyson lived in the property with third wife Lakiha, eventually selling it in 2016.

HIS CURRENT HOME

Today, back at the top, Tyson lives a life of luxury once more. And he loves living in Henderson, Las Vegas.

Shortly after he sold ‘The Hangover’ home, he bought this nearby mansion for £2.5million.

The 8,149 square-foot mansion in Henderson, Nevada, built in 2001, has plenty of indoor and outside space.

There are six spacious bedrooms and six bathrooms in his mediterranean-style villa.

Again, it’s found in the gated community of Seven Hills – so it’s surrounded by parks and tennis and basketball courts.

No wonder Mike is never leaving Las Vegas.
