Mike Tyson ’s former Maryland mansion is up for sale, with ex-wife Monica Turner putting it on the market for a staggering £7million.

Tyson purchased the Bethesda property with Turner in 1995, residing there until she filed for divorce seven years later over claims of adultery.

Turner later won the house in the divorce settlement that was finalised in 2003, but the Wall Street Journal claim she is now selling it as her youngest child has just graduated from college, meaning she doesn’t need so much space.

The vast mansion boasts seven bedrooms, eight bathrooms, a large gym, a game room, a swimming pool, sport courts and a piano room.

It spans 19,000 square-feet and also includes an entertainment area, a gourmet kitchen and fully-equipped butler’s pantry.

The estate has an elevator which serves all three floors, as well as a three-storey spiral staircase and a handcrafted cherry wood-aneled library with a wet bar and fireplace.

There is also a heated pool, complete with a bubbling spa, a sauna and a steam shower.

Tyson even had his own tennis court, billiards room, media room and bar in the property.

Agent Daniel Heider has listed it on The Tyson Estate website, which provides further details for any potential suitors.

The house, in which Tyson once lost his pet tiger, is located 30 minutes out of Washington DC and overlooks the Congressional Country Club golf course – which has hosted several US Open tournaments.

Turner says they once lost Tyson’s pet tiger, which the boxing legend named Kenya, before finding it in their neighbour’s garden.

“The neighbour yelled over, ‘I think you may have lost your dog,’” she recalled.

Tyson has been married three times, first tying the knot with Robin Givens from 1988-89 before wedding Turney six years later.
