I'm sure this will come as a big shock to the boxing world.

The lawyer who brought that up is a brave man though. Mcguigan too I suppose.
Not exactly a secret at this point. The Irish national broadcaster RTE recently ran a story about Kinahan's role as Tyson Fury's advisor and the part he is playing in Irish boxing, along with inferences that he is a big player in organised crime. I think law enforcement here really want to nab him for something soon (not that I think they will).

Yeah, I was joking. It's the worst kept secret in Boxing and something we all turn a blind eye to.

Seems like its getting more attention again though, and this and the Fury AJ negotiations won't help.

There is going to be a lot of dirty laundry aired before this one is through.
Most definitely finally cyclones behaviour is being outed in open court, and not behind closed doors with threats of further punishments for talking out of place by the bbboc
Has Sandra Mcguigan been in court as she was named along with Barry, and she’s the one who Held the purse strings.

I don't think so, I've only seen Barry and Frampton pictured.

It's only a short preliminary hearing though. Once it's heard in January she will need to be there. She's named in the case and a director of the company. The other directors will likely be called too.

Two weeks for a short preliminary hearing?

Yeah, fair enough. I think I've picked that up wrong. I can't see any pictures of her though, and she hasn't testified yet.

Reading through what's happened this week it seems like Carl might have some issues here himself.

Deliberately under declaring his purses and signing them off, presumably for tax breaks, is a shocker. I think it Happens a lot in the states, but it's effectively tax avoidance and a criminal offence.

I cannot wait for Mcguigan to take the stand,his idea of accountancy is a handful of receipts in his pocket and all’s good.

On and on this thing goes.

https://www.belfasttelegraph.co.uk/news/northern-ireland/i-treated-carl-frampton-like-one-of-my-boys-barry-mcguigan-tells-court-39598719.html

Barry McGuigan told the High Court on Wednesday that he treated former boxing protege Carl Frampton "like he was one of my boys".
This is obviously a common theme with little legs,he promised me he would look after my daughter as though she was his own
if this was the case God help his kids.
