Mike Tyson’s stunning former Maryland mansion is on the market for £4million after its sale price was slashed by £2million.
The luxury pad, which is where Tyson famously lost his pet tiger back in the day, was originally put on the market for £6million by his ex-wife Monica Turner back in September of last year.
It boasts seven bedrooms, 11 bathrooms, a gym, games room, swimming pool, piano room and sports courts, as well as an elevator that serves all three floors and a gourmet kitchen.
During his time in the 19,000 square-foot mansion, Tyson owned a white Bengal tiger with Turner called ‘Kenya’.
The former undisputed heavyweight champion has previously revealed that Kenya “went missing” on one occasion, only for his security team to find it in their neighbours’ back garden.
Tyson later claimed he was forced to “get rid” of the tiger after it “ripped somebody’s arm off”.
“I did have a pet tiger, her name was Kenya and she was around 550 pounds,” he said in an interview with GQ.
“I had a great affection for her; I kept her, I slept with her, I kept her in my room. She stayed with me I had her about 16 years.
“But she got too old and I had to get rid of her when her eyes and her head got bad.
“Oh and she ripped somebody’s arm off.”

Tyson bought the mansion with Turner in 1996, but it was the latter who won it in their divorce settlement that was finalised seven years later.
It has an updated interior which includes an entertainment area and a fully-equipped butler’s pantry along with the gourmet kitchen.
The property also has an incredible three-storey spiral staircase and a handcrafted cherry wood-paneled library.
It also has a heated pool complete with a bubbling spa, a tennis court, sauna, steam shower, billiards room, media room and bar.
