Don King Biography: Muhammad Ali to Mike Tyson

Don King Biography: Muhammad Ali to Mike Tyson Born August 20, 1931, Don King is now as recognizable for his hairstyle and sound bite-heavy manner of speaking as he is for his contributions to sport. Though he is now well-known as a big name in the boxing industry, Don King started his professional career running numbers in his hometown of Cleveland, Ohio. He eventually got into illegitimate business, but after a few encounters with the law – and a stint in jail for murder – he finally turned things around. King began following Cassius Clay – who later became Muhammad Ali – and promoting his fights, and the rest is history. In this video, WatchMojo.com learns more about the life and career of Don King.
