Boxing promoter Don King looking to sell Mangonia Park property

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. - Boxing promoter Don King owns real estate in Palm Beach County that he's hoping to sell soon.

He was in West Palm Beach on Wednesday to set the record straight about rumors surrounding a plot he owns in Mangonia Park. 

There have been reports that the land could be turned into a warehouse, but King says that is untrue.

He said he wants the 45th Street property to be purchased by a developer who would use the property to benefit the community.

King said three to four developers are interested in the 50-plus acre land.

"A hotel would be great…anything that would create jobs," said King.

"It's certainly large enough to have a boutique hotel, some shops, some restaurants that would actually lift the area up," said Palm Beach County Commissioner Priscilla Taylor.

King said he hopes to sell the property by the end of this year.
