(Video) Tyson Fury angered when asked to renounce ‘Wanted man’ Daniel Kinahan, insists ‘None of your business’

If you thought UFC’s young ace Mounir Lazzez had it bad when he was confronted over a shout out he directed to Kinahan, guess again.

One of World’s most powerful boxers, Tyson Fury has recently been cornered over his association with Daniel Kinahan.

Kinahan had previously advised the careers of Tyson Fury and Darren Till but now he’s wanted by the US government. Kinahan is deeply entrenched in Combat sports having previously founded MTK Global promotion. He has a number of boxers and martial artists in his circle.

One of Kinahan’s most prestigious clients via MTK Global was the reigning WBC heavyweight champion, Tyson Fury.

Kinahan has been named as a leader of the Kinahan organized crime group by the US Government and a $5 million reward is being offered for information leading to disruption of the Kinahan cartel or Kinahan’s arrest and conviction.

Asked if he had any business with Kinahan, Fury said: “Zero, absolutely zero.

“It’s none of my business. I keep my own business to myself, that’s it.

“Has it been a distraction? Not really, it’s got nowt to do with me, has it?

“If I say, ‘There’s a war going on in Ukraine’, and people ask me about that, it’s got nowt to do with me. I keep my business to myself. I’ve got my own troubles to look after with six kids and a wife.

“I’ve got a lot more to think about than other people’s business. In my life, I’ve got a man who wants to punch my face in next week and I’ve got to deal with that. Anything else is out of my control.”

Fury’s US promoter Bob Arum, and the WBC have tried to distance themselves from Kinahan. WBC head recently shared:

“Whilst visiting Dubai recently I was introduced to Daniel Kinahan, who has since been placed on a sanctions list by the US Treasury Department, concerning alleged links to drug crimes,” Sulaiman said. “This has generated speculation and attacks on myself and the WBC. I, therefore, feel it necessary to make it clear that at no time have we had any relationship with Daniel Kinahan.”

“The World Boxing Council deals solely and exclusively with boxing promoters and only they maintain commercial relations in the certification of fights for our titles.

“The WBC has had for many years a large number of social responsibility campaigns focused on the prevention and awareness of the dangers of drug use.

“We have a wonderful program of talks given by a former DEA agent, Rocky Heron, who reaches thousands of people with his presentations.

“I made an innocent mistake, due to absolute ignorance of the situation. In this way, I confirm that the World Boxing Council and all its members absolutely reject any action that is detrimental to human beings and we will continue, as always, in total compliance with the laws of all countries in the world.”

Many expected a strong statement from the Heavyweight champion but Tyson Fury refused to answer a question about Kinahan during a recent press confrence tied to promoting boxing match with Dillian Whyte.

Fury ultimately had to comment on the matter. He told a friendly outlet:

“It’s none of my business, and I don’t get involved in other people’s business.” Is all Fury had to say in an interview with Ring TV.
