BEIJING, China (Aug. 13)–Legendary promoter Don King held a press conference in Beijing on Wednesday where he congratulated China and the Chinese people on their tremendous launch of the first Olympic Games staged in the most populous country on earth while launching a boxing promotion of his own scheduled for Nov. 7 in the largest city in the Sichuan Province, Chengdu.
“We had been in discussions with Chinese officials to bring a fight card to Chengdu prior to the devastating earthquake they experienced on May 12,” King said. “Now more than ever we need to go. We want to remember those who perished and try to help in any way we can those who survived.”
