When: February 2012
While promoting a recent fight in Texas, Don King provided a bizarre and jaw-dropping take on history when he said to an auditorium full of people, "We even brought in a Mexican-American to give him a chance to get out and be at the front of the forefront. No more wetbacks running up and down picking the fruits and things. Now, we're rolling, you know what I mean."
The Mexican-American boxer King was referring to is Chris Arreola who later rolled King's fighter, Eric Molina. After the fight Arreola said he used to look up to King but now thinks he's, "a fucking asshole."
