    Don King won the Purse bid for this Eliminator.

    Good to see Liam William's getting closer to a title shot.

    Is this the same Garcia that Martin Murray fought a year or two ago?

    Isn’t Don King planning a show in Africa? Rumble in the Jungle 2. Be great if this is on the undercard.

    They said he has 7 days to announce the date/venue.

    If he did wouldn't it make sense for Warren to put Tete on the card as it will be on BT anyway?

    If it was a rumble in the jungle 2 it would have to have someone with name value. Don KIng has no big name fighters left and no TV deals. This fight will end up on a Warren show in the UK

    I can’t see King winning the bids just to throw it on a Warren show. See my next post.

    Don King is working on the finer details of a sequel to Muhammad Ali vs George Foreman, 45 years after the Rumble in the Jungle.

    The world’s greatest boxing promoter may soon be returning to the Democratic Republic of the Congo, formerly known as Zaire.

    King signed the Congo’s Ilunga Makabu (26-2), who is the WBC’s number one contender for the vacant cruiserweight championship.

    “I have traveled from France, and Makabu from the Congo, to meet here in Florida with Don King,” said co-manager Tarik Saadi.

    “I have matched the greatest fighter in the world with the greatest promoter in the world and today, together, we sign for the future of Junior Makabu.”

    “I am thrilled at the opportunity to help Ilunga Makabu become a world champion,” said King.

    “He’s a very talented fighter, who is most deserving of a shot at the WBC belt and we will do everything to make his championship dream come true.

    Kazakhstan’s Beibut Shumenov, WBA Cruiserweight Champion will defend his title on the same show which would create great anticipation and excitement for the two winners of the WBA and WBC meeting each other for a unification down the road?

    “I would love to bring Makabu’s title fight to his home country and promote 5 championship bouts, a boxing extravaganza featuring a WBA Heavyweight championship bout and 2 cruiserweight championship bouts; Makabu fighting for the WBC world cruiserweight championship and a female championship bout, Nigeria’s own Helen Joseph, the Iron Lady and another championship bout to be named.”

    “I’d like to thank one of the most respected fight managers, Lee Holliday, for bringing Makabu and his manager, Tarik Saadi together with us. We look forward to working with Ferdinand Luyoyo, the President of the Boxing Federation of the Democratic Republic of the Congo.”

    “We are very happy to sign with Don King and learn from the best,” said Saadi. “I am very happy to be in Miami to work together to put Africa and Congo boxing on the world map.”

    Makabu has won seven consecutive fights, the last coming Aug. 24, when he earned a majority decision against Aleksei Papin to retain his WBC Silver Cruiserweight title. He’s scored 24 knockouts in his 26 victories against two losses. One of his two losses came in a WBC cruiserweight championship bout to Tony Bellew in Liverpool on May 29, 2016.

    The Rumble in the Jungle II

    A Salute to Greatness, an Extravaganza for World Peace featuring 5 World Championship boxing matches and a world class music festival; concert and performers, taking place in the week leading up to the fight.

    We will celebrate and pay tribute to the 45th anniversary of the fight between the GREATEST OF ALL TIMES, MUHAMMAD ALI AND THE STRONGMAN OF BOXING, HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION, GEORGE FOREMAN.

    NOW, let’s get ready for Rumble in the Jungle II pursuing World Peace.

    I have seen that but can Makuabu be classified as rumble in the jungle 2? On top of that Don King says a lot of things and has been promoter of 2 shows in the last 4 years. Both of which were co-promotions for other peoples shows.

    On top of that getting a title fight Gowacki or Shumenov to Congo would cost a fortune they would do about $4 a ticket on the gate and have no broadcaster deals anywhere in the world. I think this is Don King trying to stay relevant personally
