Don King Unauthorized | Boxing’s Top Promoter? Or Biggest Crook?
Don King is known for his involvement in historic boxing matchups. He has been a controversial figure, partly due to a manslaughter conviction (and later pardon), and civil cases against him.
King’s career highlights include, among multiple other enterprises, promoting “The Rumble in the Jungle” and the “Thrilla in Manila”. King has promoted some of the most prominent names in boxing, including Muhammad Ali, Joe Frazier, George Foreman, Larry Holmes, Mike Tyson, Evander Holyfield, Julio César Chávez, Ricardo Mayorga, Andrew Golota, Bernard Hopkins, Félix Trinidad, Roy Jones, JR. and Marco Antonio Barrera. Almost all of these boxers sued him for defrauding them. Check out the full documentary here.
