The fact that the master bath in Mike Tyson's former mansion in Southington, Ohio would include copious black marble, gold plating, floor-to-ceiling windows, and a jacuzzi underneath a mirrored ceiling should not come as a particular shock to anyone. But it's still worth looking at, as are all of the pictures that photographer Johnny Joo recently took of the abandoned 1980s manse, which Tyson had to part with in 1999. The place is currently being converted into a church, and they've already got the perfect place for baptisms.
