Vast mansion in Southington, Ohio — once the home to Mike Tyson during the late 1980s and early 1990s — is now being turned into a church.
The mega-mansion with gold-plated furnishings, a mirrored ceiling jacuzzi and a swimming pool twice the size of the average family home — was used as a home for Tyson while training for fights at Don King’s facility 20 miles away in nearby Orwell.
The property 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.
‘The group would like for Mike to attend the first gathering inside the churches sanctuary.
‘I hope to help by sharing this story far and wide, maybe bringing his attention to this matter. It could be quite an experience for him walking through his former home, seeing it brought to a completely different light.’
