Report: Tyson Fury Denied Entry Into US Over Links To Daniel Kinahan

The ramifications of the US government decision to impose sanctions on senior figures in the Kinahan crime group continued to be felt in the world of boxing. The Daily Mail, the Sunday World and others are reporting today that Tyson Fury was denied entry to the United States yesterday when he was refused permission to board a flight from Manchester to the US.

The decision was made due to Fury’s connections to reputed crime boss Daniel Kinahan.

As well as being the target of the US government, Kinahan is, of course, one of the founders of the MTK Global boxing gym and promotion company, which ceased operations in April in the wake of the sanctions.

Fury’s denial comes after the US announced a crack-down on the Kinahan cartel, which includes a $5 million reward for information on Daniel Kinahan, his father Christy, and his brother Christopher.

Matthew Macklin, the other co-founder of MTK was also recently denied entry to the US.


Fury - who was photographed with Kinahan earlier this year - has employed the Dubliner as an adviser throughout the past few years. Bob Arum claimed Kinahan received over $1million per fight for working as a consultant on four Fury fights.

Fury had also recently responded to questions concerning his relationship with Daniel Kinahan.

"I've just had a million questions about this rubbish before, but like I've said to them, it's none of my business, and I don't get involved in others' business, so it doesn't really concern me.

"As I say, none of my interest, none of my concern at all. I don't regret anything, life is too short for regrets. None of my business or concern. Someone asked me about Ukraine recently, none of my concern or business. Nothing to with me. I keep my own business to myself."

This all leaves Fury in a strange position in terms of his professional career.

Fury's last fight was against Dillian Whyte in April, when Fury won via TKO. However, it is unclear when he will fight again after he recently did a u-turn on his decision to hang up his gloves. For the time being, he won't be able to train or fight in the US.


He was photographed at the Gorman-Salek fight in Liverpool last night.
