Mike Tyson's abandoned mansion

Having made more than $300 million throughout his career, boxing legend Mike Tyson was able to afford a lavish lifestyle, buying numerous mansions and cars. When he filed for bankruptcy in 2004 he was already deep in debt. 

Problems though had started years earlier. In the late 90s he lost ownership of his 5-bedroom, 60 acre property with an indoor pool, basket ball court and on-site tiger cages near Southington, Ohio to an entrepreneur who was arrested on drug related charges a year later. Then, the mansion fell into the hands of the authorities as its state was deteriorating due to neglect and vandalism. 

These photos were taken in 2007. Today, the property has been restored and it's privately owned again.
