Former heavyweight boxing champ Mike Tyson, whose life and career have had more than their share of knockdowns, is apparently back on his feet again. Tyson and his wife have bought a 10,401-square-foot home in Henderson, NV, for $2.5 million, moving up from a smaller home in the same Las Vegas suburb.
Tyson, who declared bankruptcy in 2003 despite having won more than $300 million in his boxing career to that point, is currently working on a show on Adult Swim, " Mike Tyson Mysteries." He married for the third time in June 2009 at the Las Vegas Hilton. Tyson has also done some film work, making a memorable appearance in " The Hangover."
Built in 2001, the six-bedroom, 6.5-bathroom home sits on three-quarters of an acre. It features master bedrooms on both its first and second floors. The deal closed on Dec. 28, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal. The home includes two detached casitas, a media room, a wine cellar, a swimming pool, and a four-car garage.
Tyson and his wife had owned a 5,700-square-foot home nearby since 2008, and when they saw the larger home for sale, "They recognized it was a good opportunity and smartly jumped on it," agent Kenneth Lowman told the Review-Journal. "Mike Tyson was very happy with the purchase." Lowman represented the buyer and seller in the transaction.
