This crazy, eccentric promoter is quite possibly the most weell-known person in boxing. Even in his early days when Foreman and Ali were around you can see him in the background of pictures with his wild haircut which he says was amiracle from god. The man is a born sales man and will make anything sound like the best thing since sliced bread. He mainly deals in the heavyweight division which is where most of the money lies. He's made most of his money from his long relationship with Tyson in which he must have made over $100 million. He is the only promoter to be in the Boxing Halls of Fame and the flamboyant promoter has a bad reputation amongst the boxing fraternity. His many legel court cases has made him a hated figure by the FBI who would like to bring him down. Lennox Lewis and many other fighters have vowed not to join forces with King however the only way to make big money in the heavyweight division is invariably through King. A lot of fighters know that they may never get a title shot but by joining up with King they can suddenly be elevated into the Top 10 on the boxing organisations lists and win big money in a title fight. The convicted murderer is not a man to cross who took Frank Warren to court recently and won £1 million. I can remember a time when he promoted the second Eubank-Benn fight which was a huge anti climax and a very poor fight. After the boring fight King kept screaming to anyone who would listen what agreat fight it was, in the hope to get another money spinning fight between the two.
