Tyson Quotes

"Mike Tyson is so fast and so powerful that it is almost impossible to resist the guy's punching power. Wherever he hits you, you're going to feel it. He reminds me maybe of George Foreman, but Tyson's much faster than Foreman. He reminds me in style of Rocky Marciano, but he's much faster than Marciano, and he's much bigger, 217 pounds. And he's faster and much more powerful than Joe Frazier, with a better hook. I really have no one to compare him with in terms of punching power."

Mike Tyson News: Ali buys Paradise Valley home, could see Tyson

Paradise Valley is becoming a retirement community for former heavyweight boxing champions.

Muhammad Ali, 63, and his wife, Yolanda, have purchased a $1.64 million, six-bedroom home in a gated community south of Camelback Golf Club.

Earlier this year, former heavyweight champ Mike Tyson came to roost near Mummy Mountain in Paradise Valley and ruffled feathers with the pigeon coop outside his home.

Ali's home is about two miles from Tyson's, creating the possibility that the two could cross paths in the aisle of AJ's Fine Foods on Lincoln Drive, one of the town's only grocery stores.

Ali's attorney, Ron DiNicola, said he did not know when the former champ is moving to the Valley. The home sold late last month.

The Barrow Neurological Center in Phoenix named the research center for Ali in 1997.

He has been treated for Parkinson's syndrome since 1982. It has severely affected his motor skills and speech but Ali travels often for pubic appearances.

Earlier this month, Ali settled a lawsuit against several sports collectible dealers who were selling forged lithographs.

Ali has a home in Berrien Springs, Mich., just north of South Bend, Ind.

Ali's home in Paradise Valley is relatively modest by the town's standards. It is about 6,000 square feet and features three fireplaces and marble floors.

The median sales price in Paradise Valley last month was $1.4 million and sprawling mansions are replacing older ranch homes.
