MIKE TYSON’S old seven-bedroom mansion where he famously ‘lost’ his pet tiger has had its sale price slashed by £2million.

The stunning Maryland home is now on the market for £4m after his ex-wife Monica Turner decided to sell up.

As well as seven bedrooms, there are 11 bathrooms, a large gym, a game room, a swimming pool, sports courts, and a piano room.

During his time in the property, former heavyweight boxing champ Tyson kept a white Bengal Tiger called Kenya.

He claimed one day it ‘went missing’ – only for his security team to find it in a neighbour’s property.

Tyson, who paid £55,000 for the animal, claims he was forced to “get rid” of the tiger after it ‘ripped somebody’s arm off’.

Tyson – who now owns and runs his own cannabis empire – bought the Bethesda mansion with Turner in 1995.

The heavyweight – who made his boxing comeback in November with an exhibition draw against Roy Jones Jr- lived there into the 2000’s until the two divorced after she claimed the boxing legend committed adultery.

Turner won the house in the divorce settlement that was finalized in 2003.

The mansion spans 19,000 square-feet with updated interior including an entertainment area, a gourmet kitchen and fully-equipped butler’s pantry.

The estate also includes an elevator that serves all three floors, an amazing three-storey spiral staircase, and a handcrafted cherry wood-paneled library with a wet bar and fireplace.

There’s also a heated pool complete with a bubbling spa, tennis court, sauna, steam shower, changing room, billiards room, media room and a bar.

Tyson, 54, started negotiations for a trilogy bout with Evander Holyfield, 58, before a deal collapsed.

The reformed Baddest Man on The Planet then claimed he would make his return in September against Brit boxing legend Lennox Lewis.

Lewis, 55, responded while commentating on Andy Ruiz Jr’s return fight on FOX Sports and admitted there is communication with Tyson’s camp.

He said: “Not yet, but soon — maybe. We’re talking.”
