LAS VEGAS, Nevada – It has been three decades since veteran boxing promoter Don King started his career in boxing promotions.
He promoted the legendary Muhammad Ali vs Joe Frazier match called the “Thrilla in Manila” in 1975.
Now, the 76-year-old King is visible again in the boxing arena.
“I love the Philippines and Imelda Marcos is still alive. God bless you Imelda, I love you Imelda. I am looking forward to dancing with you again, love to all the people in the Philippines, the Thrilla in Manila is immortalized,” he said.
King was one of the promoters of the Cotto-Mayorga “Relentless” fight held at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada. King partnered with Top Rank CEO Bob Arum.
When asked if the Mayweather-Pacquiao bout will ever take place, King said: “I’m working on Floyd Mayweather too. We are gonna start the pandemonium… it’s gonna be a super sensation.”
“I talked to him (Mayweather) last night and we are now discussing to see what he wants to do and how he wants to do it,” he added.
Arum didn’t deny that he, too, wants to see a Mayweather-Pacquiao bout. Both King and Arum are waiting for Mayweather Jr.
Arum said, “When Floyd is ready, then we get the fight on. I don’t know if it’s gonna happen this year, I only have one part of the equation and that’s Manny Pacquiao. I know Manny would like it to happen this year. It takes two to fight.”
King said the fight of the century could happen since he is convincing Floyd Mayweather Jr. to make it happen. Most boxers in the welterweight division would want to fight the Pacman for the money and the fame.
