Morales definitely was with Top Rank. And Mosley was with Gary Shaw for awhile.

Yeah Morales was wasnt he, pretty sure of that.

Cant remember Mosley being with Shaw but its a real possibility, he WAS with Kushner early on i know that

Just remembered there that Warren had Barrera for a short while too

If I'm not mistaken' Mosley being with Shaw is how he became such tight friends with Diego Corrales who was also with Shaw.

Everybody worked together back then.

Everybody but King, it took a major event to get King to work with Arum or Duva(Main Events)

King was willing to work with anyone, as long as it was on his terms. But Don understands money, so if the fight were big enough he'd get it done. If King promoted either Mayweather or Pacquiao, they'd have fought already.

Don King despite being a thief was GREAT for boxing because he always gave the fans the fights they wanted to see.

Alot of other promoters were leary of co promoting with King, hard to get a decision against a King fighter, especially in Vegas.
