Former advisor of Tyson Fury and Billy Joe Saunders, Daniel Kinahan has confirmed he remains involved in organising some of the biggest fights in boxing. The High Court in Dublin previously named Kinahan as a senior figure in an organised crime gang involved in international drug trafficking operations and firearm offences.

But in a statement released to talkSPORT, Kinahan hinted that includes Fury’s forthcoming undisputed heavyweight world title fight with Anthony Joshua.

He said: “I have started from the bottom and worked my way up. I am proud to say today that I have helped organise over a dozen major world title fights. I continue to be involved in planning multiple record-breaking and exciting world title fights. I’m doing all I can to give fight fans around the world the fights they want. My professional commitment is always to the boxers, those who take the ultimate risk.”

Eddie Hearn has previously insisted, Kinahan will not disgrace Anthony Joshua’s fight with the Gypsy King.
