Donald King is the American boxing promoter we all love to hate. He is known for his involvement in putting together some of the most historic boxing bouts. He has also been a controversial figure, partly due to a manslaughter conviction (later pardoned), and civil cases against him.
In this two-part episode, Sean & Johnston present the story of his early days in the numbers game before his ascension into the boxing world and creating the lasting legacy of infamy.
