Scottish gang war


Recommended Posts

In the court case that Barry McGuigan brought against Carl Frampton had some details about the basis for Kinahan’s business. Usually boxing management take 10-15% of the fighters earnings but the fighters who were going to Kinahan were paying nothing. Now, whether that was official or whether this is used to launder money isn’t known but it’s impossible for straight managers to compete.

Might be quite hard for some of the fighters to distance themselves from Kinahan, especially the ones that posed for pictures with him wearing t-shirts that say ‘No Drugs, No Champions’ on the front of them.

Seems fine.  Nothing to see here. 😐

Boxing has a long history of involvement by criminals. From the mafia having significant interests in the fight game for many decades to Ambrose amends managing and advising fighters in the 80s and 90s.

Nothing new but gives a bit more flavour. Scott Brown involved too of course! Need to scroll down a bit on first link. Second goes in to more detail on some pretty horrific background context.

Christy Kinahan (Daniel’s dad) is a fan of Russell Brand, Putin and posts anti vaccine tweets. The Matt Le Tissier of organised crime.

Irish journalist Nicola Tallant has been one of the leading reporters on the Kinahan cartel - in her podcast at the weekend, she interviewed Russell Findlay.  He is currently a Tory MSP but until last year was a crime reporter for The Sun, infamously he had acid thrown in his face on his doorstep by someone who didn't like something he'd written.

The podcast covers the links between the Kinahan cartel and the Lyons crime family, touching on some of the things and people discussed in this thread, including boxing and the allegation that at lesat one and possbikily more football clubs in Scotland are controlled by organised crime.

Is a crime journalist becoming a Tory MSP a case of poacher turned gamekeeper...... :rolleyes:
