Daniel Kinahan's favourite movie of all time is 'The Godfather' - the classic saga of a fictional Italian mafia crime family set in New York in the 1940s and 1950s.

According to some who know him, Kinahan can recite whole chunks of the script based on Mario Puzo's novel and has even taken to Twitter to expound on his artistic appreciation of the masterpiece.

It is said that life sometimes imitates art and as Kinahan attempts to reinvent himself as a boxing impresario from his desert bolthole, one begins to understand why he finds meaning in 'The Godfather' and its central character, Michael Corleone.
