Frank Warren Responds to Reports That Tyson Fury Has Been Denied Entry to the US Due to Alleged Ties to Daniel Kinahan
Earlier this week it was reported that Tyson Fury may have been denied entry to the United States of America due to his alleged connection to Daniel Kinahan.
This news comes after boxing adviser Kinahan was sanctioned by the US Treasury, which named him a major figure in the Kinahan Organized Crime Group (KOCG).
As it stands, there’s a $5 million reward for “information leading to the financial disruption of Kinahan’s criminal organization, or the arrest and/or conviction of” Kinahan and of its counterparts.
Reports then emerged from the Sunday World that Fury had been arrested as he tried to board his flight from the UK to the US by immigration officers.
‘The Gypsy King’ promoter Frank Warren responded to reports on talkSPORT’s Fight Night show and explained he was unaware of the incident.
“I do not know.” Warren said: ‘What I read was that he went to an airport and was refused boarding.
“As far as I know he didn’t go to any airport yesterday and was in Liverpool to see his cousin [Nathan Gorman] struggle.
“I haven’t spoken to him today [Saturday]. This is news to me.

Kinahan has advised a number of boxers, of which Fury is the most high-profile and ‘The Gypsy King’ even gave the Irishman a ‘big shout’ in 2020 for his help in facilitating a two-fight deal with his heavyweight rival Anthony Joshua who never ended up arriving.
Despite their ties, Fury has since tried to play down the relationship between the two, as he spoke ahead of his latest fight with Dillian Whyte.
“What a man does in his own business doesn’t concern me, I’m a boxer, I don’t get involved in anyone’s business at all,” Fury told Sky Sports.
“I don’t care what you’ve done, I’m only concerned with what I do, and I don’t do anything except boxing. End of.”
