THE American government has KO’d the Kinahan Cartel with a raft of sanctions that have caused chaos for the mob.

But when did the name Kinahan start coming on the radar in the United States and was it the mob's brazen move into top-end boxing that sealed their fate?

As Tyson Fury prepares to step into the ring at Wembley Stadium to defend his WBC heavyweight title amid a storm of controversy, Nicola Tallant chats with Jake Donovan, senior writer of BoxingScene.com.

He describes how Daniel Kinahan managed to gain a foothold at the very top of U.S. boxing while American law enforcement sought to bring down his family mafia.
