Figures in international boxing are attempting to "whitewash" the reputation of international crime boss Daniel Kinahan as he seeks to hide his notorious gangland activities behind a veneer of respectability as a promoter in the sport.

A video by world champion Tyson Fury thanking Kinahan for brokering a bout against Anthony Joshua has been met with astonishment.

The two-time world heavyweight champion, one of the most recognisable sports stars in the world, yesterday announced he had been informed by Kinahan of a two-fight deal with Anthony Joshua, the unified world champion.
