Gang boss Daniel Kinahan can been seen pointing to a 'No Drugs' slogan on a tee-shirt as he poses AGAIN for the camera with another famous boxer.

In the image posted on Instagram earlier today, the exiled crime boss can be seen his arm around IBF flyweight champion boxer Sunny Edwards in Dubai.

Under the photograph, Edwards - who has no involvement in crime - has written: "Always good to see an old friend."

The Liverpool-born fighter has been one of Kinahan's most vocal defenders and recently described him as a "legitimate" businessman.

Gang boss Daniel Kinahan has recently begun posing in images with high-profile boxers after going camera shy for a short period following the BBC Panorama expose on his criminal past.

Last week, he was also snapped with another Liverpool-fighter Darren Till on a beach in the Middle East.

It was the second time Till - who is represented by MTK Global - has posted images of Daniel Kinahan on his social media accounts.

In March 2020, he posted a photograph on Twitter and launched a staunch defence of his 'friend' Kinahan saying "he had given me more valuable advice as a friend anyone I’ve ever met in a professional capacity."

UFC fighter Till - who has no involvement in crime - described how Kinahan continues to be involved in boxing from his home in the Middle East.

Till wrote: "Good stroll on the beach tonight in Dubai with one of me good pal, Daniel Kinahan is advising Eddie Hearn and Al Haymon is advising Leonard Ellerbe for Eddie Hearn and Leonard Ellerbe to fight. Wow!!

"Good luck Eddie, I’m rooting for you son."

Kinahan continues to be supported by a number of boxers and fighters - even as he becomes increasingly isolated from the criminal underworld in Ireland.

The head of the Irish mafia is said to be under increasing pressure as spends his final days of freedom in Dubai as the law enforcement net continues to tighten.

Kinahan moves about with extreme caution in his Dubai bolthole, staying in different places every night and rarely seeing his wife Caoimhe Robinson as he tries to remain on the move while juggling a billion euro drug empire on the verge of collapse.
