Daniel Kinahan Still Involved In Organising Major Boxing Fights

That's despite claims last year that he'd stepped away from the sport and MTK Global.

Daniel Kinahan has confirmed that he's still involved in organising some of the biggest fights in world boxing despite claims last year that he'd stepped away from the sport and MTK Global.

The 43-year-old, who was the subject of a BBC Panorama documentary last week, also denies any involvement in threats sent to journalists last week after the investigation aired.

World heavyweight champion Tyson Fury thanked Kinahan last year for helping him to reach an agreement for a fight with Anthony Joshua.

However, shortly after that Fury's team announced Kinahan would no longer negotiate for him.

In a statement released to TalkSport, Kinahan insisted that he isn't linked to a criminal gang and revealed that he's “involved in planning multiple record-breaking and exciting world title fights.

Kinahan has no previous convictions but was named in the High Court as a senior figure in an organised crime gang.
