King reflects on Larkin

Legendary promoter Don King was saddened to hear of the passing on Monday of Jay Larkin, his longtime business associate at SHOWTIME. “Jay loved the world of boxing and he was a very integral part of bringing the sport and Don King Productions to SHOWTIME,” King said. “He loved working with all the great fighters and he certainly brought out the best in them in his production and direction. Jay was always in the forefront of many of the greatest promotions over the past two decades. We are going to miss him dearly. I offer my deepest sympathy to his family, led by his lovely wife Lisa, the rock behind this great and unique man.”
