By Johnny Benz, Doghouse Boxing - Smile Don King! You are 80 years young Today! It's an impressive milestone for the legendary Boxing promoter and making it much more spectacular is the fact that his Birthday is actually creating a global buzz. Don't take my word for it, because today, the King's B-day has sky rocketed the Don as high as the number one search topic on's top 10 trending list. (See Yahoo photo from Aug 20th, 2011 on this page.) Like we needed any proof that the whole World over, loves our spiky Haired friend! But it's nice to see the World can't possibly overlook our legend on his B-day!

Ranking as high as #1 on Yahoo's list is completely impressive. Making the top spot on Yahoo's trending list is by no means an easy accomplishment. To make it so high on Yahoo's trending list means a tremendous amount of people used Yahoo's popular search engine to learn more on Don King.
