- Mike Tyson sold his most priced home to American artiste 50 Cent
- The boxing legend was declared bankrupt in 2003 to the tune of £17million
- The property is fitted with 25 bathrooms, 21 bedrooms as well as its own nightclub
Boxing legend Mike Tyson who was declared bankrupt to the tune of £17million in 2003 had no choice but to sell his beautifully built mansion for £3.3m.
UK outlet Daily Star are reporting that the home was acquired by American rap superstar 50 Cent who could afford one of Tyson’s most priced assets.
It was the ‘In da Club’ crooner who could lavish such an amount on the property which is fitted with 25 bathrooms, 21 bedrooms as well as its own nightclub.
The sale of the house about 18 years ago remains the most expensive apartment ever sold in the area of Farmington - and it's not hard to see why.
It is a 50,000 square-foot residence which also has multiple games rooms, a green-screen room and a recording studio - a handy addition for someone like 50 Cent.
The splendour begins straight after entering through the stately front-gate where visitors are greeted by a lion statue.
Inside, the décor is typical for such an incredible property, with white walls, marble floors and stunning wood panelling throughout.
Outside, the grounds have everything you might expect from a £3.2million mansion, including a basketball court, guest house, outdoor pool complete with its own grotto and a picturesque lake.
Recall that Mike Tyson finally returned to the boxing rings for the first time in 15 years in an exhibition fight against Roy Jones Jr last year.
The 54-year-old could not outshine his opponent in the eighth round bout as they settled for a draw at the end of the match.
Though not as many fans were allowed into the arena, it was, however, a massive commercial success with 1.2 million pay-per-view buys.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that reigning WBC champion Tyson Fury has continued to reign insults on his countryman Anthony Joshua ahead of their proposed unification bout this year.
The 32-year-old took to social media to call out the two-time heavyweight champions, saying the Watford-born boxer should come out to battle him and learn who the real boss is.
Both boxers have been scheduled unofficially to face-off this year after Fury's trilogy agreement Deontay Wilder appears to have been thrown into the trash can.
