Just listened to the Don King interview and thought the guys did a great job. I was really hoping they would ask Don King about Al Sharpton. Kind of his opinion on the guy, since they are both outspoken, high profile people in the black community.


Any other questions you would have liked asked?

I'd definately ask him how he gets his hair the way he does. I always wanted to know that. I'd also ask him about his relationship with Mike Tyson. I mean, Tyson fired him as his manager, so I always wantd to find out about what happened. And, I'd ask him how he feels about Rev. Al

don king rarely pays what he signed for. he gives a ton of excuses like the ppv didnt make enough money. when they question it legally, cause of the contract, he offers them far less in cash in person.

he says if he owes a black fighter money, like 1 million, if he instead offers them 550 K cash in person instead, they'll always take the cash and not hold him to the contract.

he'll do that when he signs fighters. other promoters will offer a lucrative contract. he'll show up and offer the fighter cash in a suitcase instead and they'll go with him. hes a street hustler, and damn good at it

thats where he belongs, where the sport is fake and he can promote a fake sport. He has ruined boxing and made it faker than wrestling. He is a great promoter tho. You can hate him but when you hear him speak you can't help but like him, he sure is good at getting his message out and sticking to his subject.

Oscar De La Hoya is arguably the most powerful boxing promoter ever. and hes probably not half as powerful now as he'll be in another 10 years.

Don King promoted:

Muhammed Ali (rumble in the jungle & thrilla in manila)
all larry holmes title fights
all wilfred benitez title fights
all mike tyson fights in the 1980s
Promoted george foreman, joe frazier, roberto duran, alexis arguello
Promoted Michael Jackson 1884 Victory Tour

De la Hoya will have to promote many more decades to top King's resume.

thats pretty much just the HW division. De La Hoya has a strangle hold of not only most boxing divisions, but he has HBO in his pocket as well. now he just purchased Ring magazine, which most people were using for the most legit rankings, including espn and hbo. its ridiculous how much power oscar has over the entire sport, not just one or two divisions. and he just makes other fighters his partners, or regional partners. which is basically just as good as them working for him.

King has put on greater fights (thus far in dlh's career) and King made his whole career out of nothing. just his street hustler skills. with a formal education this guy would be a CEO.

DLH is a different situation, his boxing career and popularity, built up from a gold medal by Arum (whos an amazing promoter in his own right), his relationship with HBO, made it much easier. promotion was set up for him. but hes got an insane amount of power in boxing right now. hes coming off his last fight despite losing sold 2.3 million ppvs, he made over 50 million in his purse, let alone the fact that he promoted it, and now promotes the next fight of the guy that beat him. to have the influence over the major boxing network, dominating all the major boxing dates out of the year in the venues he wants, and the respect he commands (business wise) from other boxers, most better than him, is amazing. the guys like mayweather and wright that want to start their own promotion companies do it with golden boy, basically kicking up a percentage to oscar for all intents and purposes

whats surprising to me is that despite don kings awful reputation, much of it well earned, boxing writers old and young speak of King much more highly than one would think.

I'd like to ask Don King -

Why, when the "white devils" Cus D'Amato & Teddy Atlas were in charge of Tyson's career, he was "The Baddest Man on the Planet", but the minute you got you money grubbing, ****** mits on the guy, he turned into a tiger wrestling has been ?

And...cunt.
