    Default Don King files suit against ESPN

    King files lawsuit against ESPN


    Don King yesterday filed a defamation suit against ESPN, and his attorney said the boxing promoter is entitled to damages of more than $2.5 billion.

    The lawsuit says a "SportsCentury" segment aired last May accused King of being "a snakeoil salesman, a shameless huckster and worse," claimed the flamboyant promoter underpaid Muhammad Ali by $1.2 million and claimed King - convicted in a 1967 beating death and acquitted in a 1954 killing - "killed not once, but twice."

    Most of the material in the program had been printed or broadcast earlier about King, who has spent much of his career in court, but the wild-haired promoter said he had just had enough.

    "I just felt that this was the straw that broke the camel's back and I can't take it anymore, and I'm going to fight back," King said at a news conference. "I seek justice."

    The suit, filed in state court in Broward County, Fla., names ESPN and its parent company, Walt Disney Co., among the defendants. Also named are Disney-owned ABC Cable Networks and Advocate Communications, a Florida-based cable and satellite system.

    "We have not seen a copy of the lawsuit, so we are not in a position to comment on it," said Mike Soltys, ESPN's vice president of communications. "However, 'SportsCentury' is a Peabody- and Emmy-award winning series of more than 250 biographies that is widely respected for its journalistic quality and integrity."
    "It's always a Catch-22 situation. They hate you if you're the same, and they hate you if you're different."
    ~Eddie Van Halen~

    "The perfect woman has an IQ of 150, wants to make love until 4 in the morning, and then turns into a pizza."

    My eyes hurt after seeing his hair, I'm going to file a lawsuit asking for 2.5 billion too.

    This is incredible.
    No president puts joy in my life, but Van Halen puts joy in my ears.

    "I want the truth!"

    "You can't handle the truth!!!!"

    The word for the day is "frivolous". And it's probably misspelled, too.

    Don King is the biggest, cheapest fucking joke of a promoter and perhaps some people could call him an owner of boxers. I went to high school with Gerald Mclellan, a boxer that was "promoted (owned) by King". I watched Gerald train at the YMCA in Freeport Illinois and after he graduated high school he went on to a boxing career. I was watching a fight between him and Nigel Ben and Ben kicked his ass to a pulp! Gerald was left almost dead, he had brain damage and was blind...I still do not know if he can see. His sister and some other family members from Freeport wanted King to help out his "prodigy" and give a little to help with the bills...GET THIS...right after the fight that Gerald the G-man was almost killed, King signed Ben to be his new guy!!! That is low, but business....Gerald's family only recieved $5,000 and a big fuck you from King....just another story he can sue over...I just hope other stories come out about him such as this one and maybe he will get a haircut by BUBBA in jail.
    Don King sucks balls.
    Just go for it!
