    Strange lad isn't he, mad to think that the Lemieux fight was two and a half years ago and he hasn't fought anyone of any real note since, 3 fights, 1 at Cruiser and 2 against absolute nobodies. That doesn't deserve a big money fight against Alvarez.

    I don't think you have a tinfoil hat.

    It's more likely unmedicated Paranoid Schizophrenia.

    Seek help.

    Some would say he has effectively been retired since the Lemiuex fight, because he has done absolutely nothing since then.

    A collosal waste of talent, but its not surpising because the man isnt the brightest candle in the box.

    I always wondered if Kinahan would be the threat you type if you didn't dance to his tune. I think if things weren't going his way he might, rumours say so but it's only online stories

    The Irish state was complicit in the attempt on Kinihans life, and now they have made him public enemy No1.

    He's a boogeyman/buzzword/fall guy for all organised crime in Ireland to patch over the massive failings on the part of the Gardai and the Minister for Justice.

    If they actually had anything on him, he would have been picked up and extradited. There isn't even a ****ing Interpol notice on him.

    Is he an angel? No, but he's not all he's made out to be.

    Recency bias.

    Stephen Hendry won everything he did by the age of 30, when his cue snapped on a flight. He was never the same after that.

    You simply can't ignore the fact that 7 world titles is superior to 5. People who say "stronger era" are having a laugh, as if Barry Hawkins, Graeme Dott and Ali Carter are legends of the sport.

    The UK and Masters are "Triple Crown" events, but they are not a patch on the World Championship. The pundits of which you refer to, contradict themselves. You're right in saying that most consider Ronnie O'Sullivan to be the greatest, but these are the same circle of pundits which laud the World Championship (and wax lyrical about the Crucible, in particular) as the event with prestige like no other, setting it aside as the one and only.

    Unlike most, I don't see the need to compare this and that. They are both among the greatest of players.

    No offence dude but you’re massively downplaying things here.

    Operation shovel in 2010 was specifically targeting the Kinahan Cartel, they had 700 investigators involved and made 38 arrests.

    Al Capone was only done for tax evasion that doesn’t mean he wasn’t a serious criminal.

    Is there any chance he just got busted for some prohibited substance again and just retired?
    We've seen this happen before.
