Don King: Legendary boxing promoter on BLM, being friends with Trump and legacy

Channel 4 News published this video item, entitled “Don King: Legendary boxing promoter on BLM, being friends with Trump and legacy” – below is their description.

He might be 90 years old, but the notorious American boxing promoter Don King is putting on a championship fight night in Ohio next week, declaring: “I will slow down when I go to heaven.”

King, who persuaded Muhammad Ali to take part in the 1974 Rumble in the Jungle clash, also promoted countless heavyweight champions like Mike Tyson, and served four years in jail for murder.

He is still active in the world of boxing and we had some quality Zoom time with him and started by asking him about his comeback.
