Commercial Break: King of cocks flogs shoes

12 March 2009

Beware - boxing promoter and all-round piece of work Don King is on hallowed soil, promoting Marco Antonio Barrera’s fight with our own Amir Khan tomorrow night.

From my vantage point in my sick bed, I’ve just had the (dis)pleasure of listening to King in the pre-fight press conference on Sky Sports News. The hot-headed braggadocio blathered on and on for almost five minutes, laughing at jokes he’d made while everyone else in the room remained stony-faced. It was only at the point when he started plugging his forthcoming Nintendo Wii game that the Sky Sports News people cut him off and returned to the much better news that Jose Mourinho might have punched a Man U fan in the face.

But then I got to wondering. Has King ever starred in a TV ad? Surely he must have – he seems the sort of bloke who’ll do anything if there’s a dollar in it for him. Sure enough, he is, plugging pairs of bloody Crocs. The utter cock.

    Don King has to pay Chuck Norris so that he won't beat up Don's heavyweight champions. Don King will have to pay me to buy his stupid fucking game, hopefully, as Bob has pointed out, the object of the game is to extract seven shades of excrement from Kings face, i'll buy it then.
