Tito Buys Oscar De La Hoya's Big Bear Property

Meant to post this story here earlier. It's a couple days old but I don't think it has been posted on sherdog or discussed here yet. Tito bought Oscar's Big Bear pad. Symbolic of MMA replacing boxing? Interesting that top MMA fighters can now afford the same things as top boxers?

(BTW, Tito was named one of the 50 most beautiful people by the Spanish version of People Magazine? That's comedy...)

Boxer exits the ring in Big Bear
By Ruth Ryon, Times Staff Writer
May 13, 2007

Oscar De La Hoya, the people's champion who lost the World Boxing Council's super-welterweight belt last weekend in his match against Floyd Mayweather Jr., has sold his Big Bear Lake property for about $2.1 million.

It was bought by mixed martial arts champ Tito Ortiz — "the Huntington Beach bad boy" of the Ultimate Fighting Championship, who recently was named one of the "50 Most Beautiful" Latino celebrities by People en Español.

Last November, De La Hoya listed his mountain retreat and training facility on an acre at $2.5 million. He wasn't using the home much because he lives and trains in Puerto Rico. He also owns a home in Pasadena.

The 34-year-old boxer designed the one-bedroom, 3,900-square-foot main house and three-bedroom, 3,200-square-foot guest quarters in Big Bear after buying the land in the 1990s. De La Hoya has long expressed a desire to become an architect but has been busy with boxing, his Golden Boy Promotions company, which promotes boxing events, and a line of clothing since he won a gold medal in the 1992 Olympic Games in Barcelona.

He converted his four-car garage in Big Bear into a gym. It has a steam room.

The gated estate also has a putting green and stream with a footbridge.

The houses have vaulted ceilings, log support beams and walls of glass. The main house has an indoor spa and waterfall.

Debra Parkinson of Parkinson Group Resort Properties, an affiliate of Christie's Great Estates, had the listing.

I don't think it's symbolic, but that's probably a cool pad

Symbolism is for liberals.

Oscar doesn't use the home anymore. He does live with his family in Puerto Rico so why not sell the joint? It doesn't say anything about boxing or mma.

Tito will need more than just a mountain training camp if he want's to get the LHW belt back. If I were him, I would definately stick with Jenna - keep that money rolling in!

WHY in every report I see about Tito Ortiz from an ''outside mma'' source... It always says ''Ultimate fighting champ Tito Ortiz '', or ''UFC Top dog Tito Ortiz '' and shit like that.


Anyway.. Tito being one of the 50 most beautiful people is fucking hilarious.
