A program aired tonight on BBC One which delved into and explained the connections between MTK, Daniel Kinahan and the Irish Cartel which he leads. I found the program interesting even though I already knew most of the details which most people that follow boxing also knew.
I tend to believe that MTK is involved as a front for money laundering of some kind as there’s too much evidence that links them to Kinahan and criminal activity though they don’t have enough evidence to actually arrest people such as Kinahan yet.
A bit like how they couldn’t get the Mob bosses in America for years I imagine its just as hard getting anything to stick to Kinahan and his lot. I think boxing still being involved with organised crime isn’t a great look for the sport especially when that organised crime has led to many deaths. Unfortunately I see very little changing however.
