Watch: Fury throws Sky strop over Kinahan questions

Tyson Fury says he won't give any more interviews with Sky Sports after he was asked about the extent of his involvement with Daniel Kinahan. 

The WBC heavyweight title holder faces Dillian Whyte at Wembley Stadium on Saturday night, but the fight has been overshadowed by talk of Kinahan's hold on the sport.

Last week an online press conference involving both Fury and Whyte saw zero questions asked about Kinahan, who has had a $5million dollar bounty placed on his head by the United States Treasury for his alleged involvement in large-scale organised crime.

Kinahan has been an advisor to Fury, playing a pivotal role in arranging the botched unification meeting of Fury and Anthony Joshua.

The Dubliner also helped establish MTK Global, whose CEO Bob Yalen resigned on Tuesday citing the "intense pressure" of the past few weeks. This despite protests as recent as last week that Kinahan had not been involved in MTK business since 2017.

And after last week's attempt to bury the lede, Fury finally faced questions - albeit reluctantly - about Kinahan at a public workout ahead of his Whyte fight.

Facing a scrum of reporters, he repeatedly said Kinahan's issues with the law were none of his business. Fury also refused to definitively distance himself from Kinahan.

Later in the day, in a sit-down chat with Sky's Kaveh Solhekol, Fury became increasingly more frustrated with questions related to Kinahan.

"I just had a million questions about all this rubbish before," said Fury, "But like I said to them, it's none of my business, and I don't get involved in other people's business. So it doesn't really concern me."

Fury then claimed Kinahan had "no involvement" in organising Saturday's clash with Whyte, replying with "he's not me father, let's just say that" when asked if he was still close with the Dubliner whose group - according to US officials - "smuggles deadly narcotics, including cocaine, to Europe, and is a threat to the entire licit economy through its role in international money laundering".

The WBC champion then went on to bizarrely conflate questions about Kinahan with recent inquiries regarding his opinion on the war in Ukraine.

Fury claims he finished his "business" with Kinahan in 2020, this despite being pictured with him as recently as February.

The boxer then flounced off with a parting, "I'm not here to talk politics, war or religion with you, who's trying to probe for me to say something.

"I'm not interested in other people's concerns - I'm not interested. Don't care. None of my business at all.

"I'm a boxing man, and I've got a fight to think about. And that's enough said. Thank you very much, I won't be doing any more interviews with Sky."
