    I hear those broadcasts are simply down in the books as advertising costs.

    Agree with this.

    I doubt hardcore boxing fans will be too outraged, people watch boxing in the hope their preferred fighter takes the opponent's head off, it's hardly a higher class sport. It's not like Kinahan has rocked up to the local chess club.

    Not condoning anything he's supposed to have done but at the same time I couldn't care less what he gets up to outside of boxing.

    It certainly feels like boxing is trying to be forced down a more mainstream route though, which is why they've probably put this documentary out. It's seen as a 'day out' and half the crowd at British boxing events these days are the blazer wearing type who just go to sing Sweet Caroline and queue at the bar all night.

    Wonder if it will put ESPN off showing them in America?

    You mean the BBC "documentary" will put ESPN off? I highly doubt it. If you believe that you are hugely overestimating the importance and impact of the BBC program last night. It was nothing new, just reheated but piece material from years ago. The only really significant detail that featured was that Operation Shovel was a catastrophic failure. They hit DK with their best shot, and he's still standing. That was a 10 year multi national and multi agency operation that cost millions and involved a forensic trawl through the affairs of the Kinahan operation. In boxing parlance they never laid a glove on him. The rest of the show was mainly waffle.
    FWIW the Kinahan operation is dying a natural death anyway, regardless of what the authorities do or don't do.

    Just the Americans can be twitchy, and the actual MTK shows on ESPN probably only generate 40 views anyway.

    Sunny Edward’s Twitter feed is something else. Seems to Think he’s clever going in on the Mcguigans and acting like a Kinahan mouthpiece. The poor kid is completely deluded and either fails to recognise, or chooses to ignore, his lifestyle is probably partially funded by blood money.

    I didn't know Moore stopped at kinahans villa when shot and also Macklin selling to fake tan boss who happens, to be an old friend of kinahan. Macklin in it up to his neck?

    Sam Jones very Pro DK last night, he's obviously petrified of his fighters being signed on 0% management contracts by MTK.

    Something that has never really come out, why did Helder leave IFL? Do MTK own a stake in IFL? I wonder who brought him out?

    Isn't SJAM part of MTK, I am sure they announced last year there was some kind of link.

    Good thing is though he is a brutal knockout waiting to happen if he ever boxes anyone remotely near the actual top 5 in the world.

    I quite like Sonny, but he was plumetting in my ratings last night.

    Obviously it was a bias documentary last night, but there isn't that much smoke without some fire.
