Carl King, son of the famous boxing promoter Don King, is quick to point out that his love for the sport of boxing goes back as far as he can remember. “When I was 8, my dad bought me a pair of boxing gloves to play with,” Carl said. “When I was in the seventh grade, before my dad had ever promoted a boxing match, I wrote a paper called History of Boxing in the Heavyweight Division. I received an “A” on that paper, While still only a freshman in college, Carl formed Monarch Boxing and became the youngest boxing manager in history by signing Michael “Dynamite” Dokes. Carl guided Dokes from his first professional bout through his reign as an undefeated world heavyweight champion. Carl King learned early in life that it was important to help one’s community. Being there with his father, Carl watched his father save “Forest City Hospital”. To save the hospital, Don King launched on August 28, 1972 a fund raiser called “The Show for People Care”, an exhibition fight with Muhammad Ali. The local community hospital was saved by the King’s fund raising event.
