Three faces of Don King

 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.

The perfect punch Volume 3 – the uppercut

Devastating when applied correctly, this punch is rightly the favorite of many boxing fans. 

Juan Manuel Marquez Juan-Diaz 

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.
