    Poor Barry Mcguigan....

    On the one hand on a personal level everyones heart goes out to him on the loss of a child.

    Im only here to ask about his impending court case.

    In yesterdays Telegraph he's quoted as saying he "doesnt give 2 hoots about Daniel Kinehan .I dont care about that man".

    He clearly apportions blame to Kinehan over all his fighters like Frampton leaving him.

    I think and its just my opinion...McGuigan who has turned 60 has made a great living from boxing the last 40 years and should drop it.

    Hes succesfully sued two of his fighters and its time he stopped the greed and vindictive ways and enjoyed his life.

    He faces losing a lot more financially starting this case .

    Its sad cos i always felt barney eastwood took advantage of barry.

    What do others think

    “McGuigan questions whether Kinahan was involved in some of his own fighters’ moves to MTK, something neither the company nor lawyers for Kinahan responded to requests for comment on. McGuigan says he also fears Kinahan will not be out of boxing for long. “It’s really worrying, very worrying,” McGuigan adds of the latter’s “grip” on the sport, branding his role in a prospective Joshua-Fury showdown as “a black mark” on it.

    He says everyone in Ireland, north and south, knows about the Kinhan cartel – “You would need to blind and deaf not to” – and describes the activities that have now been laid bare in court as “a horror story”.

    This is coming from a man born and raised in an Irish border town during the height of the Troubles, who says police gave him a gun when he was told Republicans had put a price on his head and there was a plot to kidnap him. “I couldn’t hit a barn door,” he jokes.

    But asked whether he is worried about speaking out against the Kinahan gang and its alleged leader, he snaps back: “I don’t give two hoots about Daniel Kinahan. I don’t care about this guy.” He stops himself before starting again, clearly seething, but then decides this is all he wants to say on the matter.

    His anger is borne from frustration over the loss of fighters in whom he has invested hundreds of thousands of pounds, as well as years of his time, with no guarantee of a return. He is also not alone in having seen boxers leave for MTK, which he says he fears could become a “monopoly”, something he warns would be bad for the sport.

    Those concerns form part of a wider fear McGuigan has over the future of boxing, one that leads him to call for one of the most radical changes to its governance in its history.

    “I’d love to have an international task force that would sit in and hover above the four existing organisations that are in power, the WBC, WBA, IBF and WBO,” he says. McGuigan wants these “Untouchables” to police doping, medical matters and rankings worldwide, as well as the potential monopolisation of the sport.

    One of his foremost concerns is boxing's policing of doping. He brands the existing drugs sanctions “a joke” and warns someone “will die in the ring” at the hands of a doper if it does not crack down on the problem.

    McGuigan says he knows more than anyone the “consequences” of killing an opponent 38 years after his tragic fight with Young Ali. “These are red flags and if we do not take heed of them, we’re in trouble," he says. "We’re already in trouble and we need to get this resolved, absolutely.”

    His passion stems from a love for a sport that remains undiminished 35 years on from his iconic world title triumph, with the memories of that night and the accolades that followed still fresh in his mind.

    He admits he has thought about giving up in his fight to rescue his business, particularly since the death of his daughter after a brief battle with cancer, a disease she had previously beaten. Dissolving into tears, he says: “As a dad, I’m supposed to be her protector. Sitting there, feeling f---ing useless.”

    But he is not ready to throw in the towel. “It’s something I’ve dedicated my life to. I’m a hall-of-fame fighter. I’m in the World Boxing Hall of Fame and the International Boxing Hall of Fame. I’m former world champion and BBC Sports Personality of the Year. I’ve done a great job with all the fighters I’ve looked after, a magnificent job, and why should I walk away?”

    I dont know if he is because Carl had a contract with McGuigan and he didnt honour his deal and ran off to another promoter, did Ricky Burns not do the same when Eddie lured him from Frank promising a golden bag off Apples n Pears.

    You either fufill your contract or you buy yourself out as far as i can see.

    I think Framptons jumped ship thinking he’s got a rock solid case against Mcguigan, so it doesn’t matter in his eyes, I think from what I’ve heard it does sound bad money wise with Barry. Isn’t he in court with the female fighter too, forgot her name
