Three very different depictions of Don King here. Perhaps the starkest contrast comes between the 2nd and 3rd – one a portrait by Spike Lee, beautifully shot and full of tension. The 3rd is from the recent bio film Tyson, and shows the man himself, humbled perhaps reflecting on his reality of Don King.
Great compilation presented by the one and only Don King

Mike Tyson shot by Terry Richardson for Details Magazine
Terry Richardson and Mike Tyson
Devastating when applied correctly, this punch is rightly the favorite of many boxing fans.
Juan Manuel Marquez used it to savage effect to close the show on Juan Diaz in their fight. Having dropped Diaz just earlier in the round, Marquez manoeuvred his man into position and used the punch that he knew would turn the lights out in his opponent – the uppercut!
Some of the greatest and most aggressive forces in boxing like Mike Tyson and Roberto Duran can be remembered for their spectacular use of the uppercut.
