Mike Tyson's Abandoned Mansion Is All Set To Be Transformed Into A Church.

There was a time when Mike Tyson was the most badass man on earth. His super huge mansion in Southington, Ohio with gold plated furnishings, mirrored ceiling jacuzzi and a vast indoor swimming pool is like a dream place to live.

Due to financial constraints, Mike had to sell the mansion in 1991 following the judgement of the rape case he was involved in. The current owners have donated the property to Living Word Sanctuary. As reported by Tribune Chronicle, Living Word plans to use the property for a number of church related activities.
