In the 1980′s it was looking like Mike Tyson would go down as the greatest boxer of all time. (See: Mike Tyson Savage Knockouts) He was on top of the world making money hand over fist and built this 5-bedroom, 10,000 square foot house on a 60-acre property in Southington, Ohio. Why in Southington, Ohio we may never know but Tyson spared no expense. The house features an indoor pool, full outdoor basketball court, and tiger cages on-site. The all-night dance parties were probably unbelievable.

Mike Tyson used to do more than just be a bad actor and all around crazy person. He used to be a very good boxer, so good infact, that they created a video game for him on the now ancient NES system. As basic as the game was, it actually depicted Mike in a true light. He was just as impossible to beat in the game as he was in real life. A champion of champions that would eat your heart as well as your children. This gent created this very impressive layout of the 8 bit legendary game.
We all know “Iron” Mike Tyson for his immense punching power, his first 19 professional bouts were won by knockout, with 12 of them occurring in the first round. But what people forget is that Tyson was one of, if not the greatest, defenders in boxing history with a bob & weave Peek-a-Boo that made him nearly impossible to touch. This is how you win boxing championships. Tyson’s vicious punching ability certainly carried him a long way but he was arguably the best ever because no one could lay a finger on him.
