Synonymous with boxing promotions, Don King failed to act in accordance with the law in 1966 when he stomped Sam Garrett to death. The heinous crime only landed him 3-and-a-half years in prison after his charges were reduced to manslaughter; he was originally on trial for second-degree murder. The boxing promoter’s biggest career highlight to this day remains spearheading the promotions of “The Rumble in the Jungle,” and the “Thrilla in Manila.” He also went on to promote some of the biggest names in boxing such as Muhammad Ali, Mike Tyson, Evander Holyfield, Joe Frazier, and George Foreman etc.
