    Junior welterweight contender Amir Imam (21-2, 18 KOs) has been out of action since an early 2018 loss to Jose Ramirez, and alleges it’s because King has been ineffective as a promoter.

    Mike Coppinger links a lawsuitImam has filed against King which accuses the promoter of a multitude of improprieties, including one in particular that that says King paid him only $29,000 for his world championship fight against Ramirez while unlawfully distributing $43,000 to his former manager Stacey McKinley and keeping the remaining $225,000 of his purse for himself. Imam also accuses McKinley of acting in cahoots with King while serving as his manager, acting more as an agent for King than himself.

    King's business skills must be outstanding.
    Even when he's one of the biggest symbols of corruption in pop culture and hated by every single boxing fan, he still manages stay very relevant on the world level.
     
  4. He probably has the game of a successful pimp. Probably made imam feel like an Ancient Egyptian Pharaoh.

    Signing with Don King is like having unprotected sex with a hooker. If you're attracted to her and horny she may fool you into doing something you know you'll regret.

    I think Arum and King will outlive us all. How many great fights have their greed precluded from happening? Or caused them to happen after the ideal window closed...

    Don King's promotional company doesn't have a website. That says all you need to know about his promotional skills in 2019. Fuck Don King.

    I can’t believe this guy is still clawing for cash at 87.

    His sarcophagus is going to have a night deposit box.
