The spokespersons of international sports promoter, Don King, has refuted the international sports promoter’s death rumour, which spread quickly on Facebook last week, causing concern among fans across the world.

His camp has confirmed the report as a complete hoax and the latest in a string of fake celebrity death reports.

They said the legendary Boxing promoter is alive and well, and that reports of his so-called death were hoax.

Rumours of the business man’s alleged death gained prominence last week after a ‘R.I.P. Don King’ Facebook page attracted nearly one million of ‘likes’.

On Sunday, however, his representatives officially confirmed that Don King is not dead. “He joins the long list of celebrities who have been victimised by this hoax. He’s still alive and well, stop believing what you see on the Internet,” they said.

Meanwhile, some of his fans have expressed anger at the fake report, saying it was reckless, distressing and hurtful to fans of the much-loved businessman. Others say this shows his extreme popularity across the globe.
