Boxing promoter Don King said he didn’t think he was “a massive player” when it came to the sport and the way he had made money, but he did think it was “kind of a trap” for people to think he “didn’t have a chance” to make a lot of money.
King said he was working in the sport at a time when it was viewed as a “dangerous” profession, and he would have loved to be able to do what he had done with Showtime and the promotion.
“I think it’s kind of a Catch-22,” King said.
“You get caught in that trap, which is the notion that you’re going to be playing catch-up.”
King was speaking to CBS Sports’ Marc Stein at the Sports Forum at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on Wednesday, after he was asked if he thought boxing was “dead.”
“Yes,” he said.
“The sport is not dead.
We’re just not doing as well as we would like to.”
King, who turned the fight promotion for Showtime into a billion-dollar enterprise, said he had not been thinking about the future of the sport for some time.
He said he thought he would be “at the top of the food chain” for a while, but the sport has changed so much over the past few years that it’s hard to “keep up.”
King said the way that people view boxing, particularly in the U.S., has changed over the years, but also the way people view him.
For a while he thought his sport would continue to grow, but now, he said, “we’re kind of in a different place.”
King went on to say that he is still “not the greatest boxers, but I do what I do, I make a living out of it.
I don’t know what the future holds for me, but what I’ve been able to achieve over the last decade has been tremendous.”
King is the first promoter to get an interview with CBS Sports, and was the only one to do so after he turned over the reins to Showtime’s David Wells.
King has worked in the sports industry since 1982, when he started working for ABC.
He worked for Showtime until 2005, when the company folded.
King is currently the chairman of the Professional Boxing Hall of Fame, which he helped establish in 2007.
He is also the chairman and CEO of the American Boxing Federation, the professional boxing federation that operates under the umbrella of the WBA.
King’s business model has been to sell tickets, which are sold in person or through online ticketing platforms, and then generate money from the sale of those tickets.
He said that in his case, that was about 90 percent of his revenue.
King is also a former head of Showtime, where he served as chairman from 1998 to 2006.
He was paid $2.9 million by the company in 2010 to oversee the company’s boxing operations, and to step aside as president.
King was the first of several boxing promoters to get a look at the latest results of the PBF’s statistical analysis, and his comments were a strong indication of how he felt about the sport as a whole.
King said that boxing is not the same sport as it used to be, and that he was surprised at how “slow” the sport had become in the past 10 years.
He also said that there were more and more promoters and promoters who were making a living off the sport, which in the current climate has become “dangerously” lucrative.
King also said he does not want people to “get caught up in the idea that I’m a monster.”
He said he feels like he’s doing “a lot of good.”
