King paid daddy in cash with the predictable abandonment of family and King became his daddy.

And we know how that goes. The only King fighters able to retire with intact finances were Holmes who was helped by a loving wife and Tex Cobb.

Tony an A+ talent with a mental fragility that a King could easily exploit much as he did Tyson and others.
True, but if he doesn't get injured for 15 months in the 1982/1983 time period, may have won a belt a couple of years earlier.
