Boxer Kostya Tszyu seeks to knock out Carss Park record

The Carss Park mansion of the champion boxer Kostya Tszyu and his wife, Natasha, has been listed with just over $3 million hopes.

It is set for auction next weekend through Mark Kourouche of First National Real Estate Greenacre. Tszyu, who won his first world title in 1995, was inducted into the International Boxing Hall of Fame alongside fellow greats Mike Tyson and Julio Cesar Chavez last year.

The highest price paid in Carss Park was $2.45 million in late 2008 for a five-bedroom, seven-bathroom house on a 1,865-square-metre Gnarbo Avenue block.

The Russian-born Tsyzu has never officially retired, although he hasn't fought since 2005.

His six-bedroom, eight-bathroom residence has been renovated and extended since the couple bought it for $785,000 in 2000. He had previously lived at Sans Souci.

The 2,400-square-metre Benwerrin Avenue property has resort-style facilities including a tennis court and heated saltwater pool.
