After amassing a net worth of nearly $400 million, Tyson’s lavish spending spree and a divorce settlement saw him lose almost everything. At the peak of his career, Tyson would earn $30 million per fight.

But he would spend it all on cars, jewelry, and mansions. When the divorce of Mike and his ex-wife was finalized, he had to pay a settlement fee of $6.5million.

Tyson also had to give up the keys to a 61-room mansion in the divorce. In 2003, when Tyson eventually filed for bankruptcy, it was reported that he was in debt of around $23 million.

But the boxer did not give up and pieced his life back together. Tyson worked on himself both physically and mentally to make a comeback. And when he did, Arnold Schwarzenegger was there to support him and address his hard work.
