Don King Congratulates
Mexican President-Elect
Enrique Pena Nieto

The People’s Choice. The People’s Champion. And Don King’s Champion

DEERFIELD BEACH, Fla.—American-Mexican promoter Don King sent congratulations today to Enrique Pena Nieto for winning Sunday’s election to become the new president of Mexico.

King met the 45-year-old president-elect last June while in Mexico and was greatly impressed.

“Pena Nieto is the people’s choice and the people’s champion in Mexico, and he has my heartfelt congratulations,” King said.

“In the words of Father Miguel Hidalgo, ‘Mexicanos, Viva Mexico!’ In the spirit of Hidalgo, Pancho Villa, Emiliano Zapata and Benito Juarez comes Enrique Pena Nieto, a tried and true representative of the Mexican people, a leader who loves and cares about the people he represents.

“When he takes office, I know there will be a rebirth of boxing in Mexico. Mexicans are fighters inside the ring and outside the ring, and I look for a bigger, better and brighter future for all Mexicans. Viva Enrique Pena Nieto! Viva Mexico!”

Pena Nieto will succeed Felipe Calderon as the 19th Mexican president since the Mexican Revolution concluded in 1920. He had served as governor of the State of Mexico from 2005 through 2011.

lol. don king and nieto, two murderers side by side. nieto is backed by the drug cartels. he will act as don over them. in promise for keeping public beheadings low he will let them operate with proceeds and tribute going to him and the rotten drug war forever with this clown. Pena Nieto, 45, will take office in December, marking the return to power for the PRI, which ruled Mexico for most of the twentieth century - a time when the cartels' power soared amid widespread corruption and weak institutions. border residents fear Pena Nieto's win will mean a return to the corruption and accommodation with organized crime that marked the PRI's 71 years in power.
