9. Don King
For better or worse, Don King was the man behind the scenes who produced some of the greatest boxing matches of all time. He was the mouthy promoter who, at times, outshined his clients in flash and airtime. In a sport known for its flamboyant attitudes, Don King out-talked and out-dressed them all.
Even though he was infamous for screwing over numerous boxers, young dudes kept flocking to him to organize and promote their come-ups. A big reason for this was certainly the extravagant wardrobe of King's that screamed affluence and mounds of scrilla. In a democratic nation, Don King was a man who converted followers by dressing like the American Dream that he claimed to offer.
