Cartel chief Daniel Kinahan is posturing again, with press statements, pictures and propaganda from an army of boxers under his control.

And now he is teeing up a ‘world exclusive’ interview with podcaster James English, whose popular YouTube show has featured chats with a host of MTK boxers, many of whom have taken the opportunity to praise the drug boss.

So what is going on with Ireland’s most wanted man and how has he managed to mingle between the world of organised crime and that of the sport of boxing?

Nicola Tallant talks with Sunday World Deputy Editor Niall Donald about Kinahan’s rise as a boxing powerbroker and his attempts to sports-wash his criminal reputation.
