Daniel Kinahan, who has advised Tyson Fury and other British fighters, will not disgrace Anthony Joshua’s fight with the Gypsy King, according to Eddie Hearn. Despite being accused of running a gang linked to multiple murders and a drugs empire worth €1billion, he had not stepped back from boxing and could be involved in the fight.

Fury publicly praiseed him for brokering the skeleton two-fight deal with AJ for the undisputed heavyweight title. Hearn was asked if he is concerned that the spotlight on Kinahan could hurt boxing’s wider reputation.

He said: “No. No impact. The fight is much bigger. It’s so big it will be the only thing discussed in my opinion among the fans. Whether that’s the same for the media I don’t know.

“But (there will be) no impact on the fight at all. Right now, the emails and phone calls are with Bob Arum and Top Rank and Tyson Fury’s Team. He’s within his rights to appoint whoever he wants.”
