    PHOENIX (AP) — Mike Tyson has sold his home in the posh town of Paradise Valley for $2.3 million.
    The former heavyweight champion bought the 7,700-sqare-foot property in the Phoenix suburb two years ago for $2.1 million.
    The boxer caused a commotion in the town shortly after buying it when he began building a pigeon coop in the backyard. He didn’t have the proper permits, but later obtained them and built the coop, which housed dozens of the birds.
    Kris LaCroix, a real estate agent with the Equitable Real Estate Co., said the coop was removed before she listed the house.
    “It’s very well built and sits on a gorgeous lot,” LaCroix said, adding that it was “a pleasure” working with Tyson on the sale.
    She said the home was initially listed at $2.45 million. It was on the market for more than three months, according to the Arizona Regional Multiple Listing Service.
    Tyson is facing an August trial in Maricopa County on felony drug possession charges and two misdemeanor counts of driving under the influence of drugs. He was arrested Dec. 29 in Scottsdale after driving away from a nightclub.

    No. You can't.
    Story says he has sold his house, not that he is selling the house.

    I thought this was about Mike Jordan, after the Juanita divorce figures came out :)

    You can still buy the house. Everyone has a price.

    How much would it cost to have you go away?

    I guess you would have to ask the the person who brought you here to answer that one. How much would it cost you to get off my (you fill in the blank).

    There's nothing funny about doctor's joke. It's actually sad that a young man with a warped mind and a computer can't stop writing stuff about someone he doesn't know. It's amazing, it really is.

    You mean kind of like you opining on every journalism job opening, every city and damned near every athlete in America like you have first-hand knowledge? Kind of like that? Or different?
