Don King returns!


Recommended Posts



While the 78-year-old still has the same electric hairstyle, he's making a return to Las Vegas after a four-year absence with bantamweights when Joseph Agbeko faces Yonnhy Perez on Saturday in an IBF title match.


The world's most recognized and bombastic boxing promoter ? who made his name by controlling what used to be the sport's most recognizable division since the 1970s by promoting all-time great heavyweights Muhammad Ali, George Foreman, Joe Frazier, Larry Holmes, Mike Tyson and Evander Holyfield and a litany of others in between ? is focused on the lower weights.


"The public has the smarts to know that this isn't a Tyson or Holyfield, but it's electric here," says King of the atmosphere at Treasure Island Hotel and Casino. "That is what makes me so phenomenal. I have taken a 118-pound bantamweight fight and it's bigger than anything in this town. I aint got to pay them that $20 million or 30 million I would for a Tyson or Holyfield, but I'm using the same magic."
