Darren Till Issues Statement On Friendship With Kinahan Cartel Leader


Darren Till is arguably becoming one of the more controversial personalities in MMA, whether that’s due to some supposed lack of parenting skills or friendships with the leader of the Kinahan Cartel.

Till was recently photographed with Daniel Kinahan and an unnamed boxer, which has caused quite a stir, since the Kinahan Cartel is allegedly the biggest supplier of drugs in the country of Ireland.

The fighter has now taken to Twitter to issue a statement on what went down with Kinahan:


Here is what Till wrote in one of the pictures on Twitter (via Cole Shelton of BJPenn.com):

“Yes I am friends with Daniel Kinahan… & what? I’ve never hidden his friendship & why should I when the man has given me more valuable advice as a friend than anyone I’ve ever met in a professional capacity. I’ve been friend with Dan for years & years long before I ever joined MTK Global so why would it automatically be presumed the two are linked. There are thousands of people dying all over the world right now, people losing they’re jobs & struggling to keep a roof over their heads & put food on the table & this is NEWS?!! These journalists who are harassing me right now for a statement & writing lies & hated in an effort to make this news need to take a long hard look at themselves & ask what they are really contributing to the world. I won’t be commenting on this shit anymore, instead I’ll focus on more important things! I.e keeping my loved ones safe! #TheSunLie #Slander #Rats.”
