Arum Apologizes To King For Post-Presidential Debate Vegas Spat

By Keith Idec

If you were eating dinner Wednesday night at Piero’s in Las Vegas, you also might’ve witnessed one heck of a show for free.

Boxing promoter Bob Arum was eating dinner at the Italian restaurant with his wife, Lovee, and friends after attending the third and final presidential debate between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump at UNLV’s Thomas & Mack Center. In walked fellow Hall-of-Famer Don King, a staunch Trump supporter who also attended the debate.

Arum, who has repaired his often-contentious relationship with his longtime rival in recent years, wasted little time lambasting King for supporting Trump.

“After the debate, which was great, we went to Piero’s, which is a local place,” Arum told BoxingScene.com. “We had dinner and we had friends at a different table, and 20 minutes after we’re there, Freddie Glusman, the owner, says I just got a phone call from King. He’s coming over.

“So King comes in and he comes over to say hello to me. And I don’t know, I just lost it. ‘You mother***ing traitor. You call yourself a proud black guy. How could you do this to your people?’ I yelled and screamed. He turned around and walked away. So I felt bad after I finished dinner, because I was there before him. I walked over to him and said, ‘Don, I was out of order talking to you.’ He says, ‘Look, Bob, we want change in this country.’ So I said, ‘Don, it’s better off if I talk to you after the election.’ And that was it.”
