SOME of the world’s leading boxing figures fear they could be barred from the United States because of their links to mob boss and wannabe fight promoter Daniel Kinahan.

More than 600 people have been banned from entering America due to their links to the Kinahan cartel,

Assistant Garda Commissioner John O’Driscoll confirmed the bans while on a trip to the US with other top cops.

He said: “The number of people who have been denied entry into the US has grown — it is over 600 at this stage — as a consequence of the targeting of the Kinahan Organised Crime Group.”

And the senior officer said those denied entry to the States “will be denied entry into other jurisdictions, if they were to try and gain entry”.

People forbidden from America may include some individuals involved in pro boxing and others who’ve voiced their support for Christy ‘Dapper Don’ Kinahan’s eldest son in the past.

GANG BUSTERS 

Fresh US warning wanted cartel boss Daniel Kinahan 'can run but can't hide'

Former boxer Matthew Macklin — who previously told us Daniel was his “best friend” — was recently prevented from boarding a flight to the US. He has no involvement in crime.

At present, those on the no-fly list will only be made aware of their ban if they attempt to travel to America from other airports around the world.

The register, which hasn’t been made public, is also expected to be made available to cops at Dublin Airport.

The three brawlers have no links to criminality but have previously spoken about their support for Kinahan.

The list is also expected to include those who previously worked for MTK but have now moved into other boxing promotional companies after last month’s closure of Kinahan’s old firm.

Other countries are now expected to follow up with similar bans.

A boxing insider last night told The Irish Sun: “Anyone who was remotely connected to Kinahan in the past will now be running scared.

“Their heads are in a spin and they don’t know what’s coming next. A lot of people will be very anxious, ­especially in the boxing world, because this is where all the money is.”

Others on the list are understood to include some people who have worked in a range of business activities with the blood-thirsty gang.

The Irish Sun also understands that cartel kingpin Liam Byrne features on the roll along with other senior cartel figures across Dublin.

Associates of caged British cartel chief Thomas ‘Bomber’ Kavanagh are also expected to face the crackdown.

And the mob’s organised crime ­contacts from around the globe will be hit with the flight bans.

Partners of senior cartel figures — including fugitive Sean McGovern’s girlfriend Anita Freeman — will also face misery if they attempt to jet over to the States.

Others facing a ban include those who were named by the Criminal Assets Bureau as associates of Liam Byrne under Operation Lamp.

The Irish Sun can reveal that any non-EU citizen who is on the list and who presents at Dublin Airport will be refused entry and sent back to their country of origin.

The Kinahan cartel leadership remains holed up in Dubai despite having their assets frozen by the United Arab Emirates authorities.

We revealed last month how files had been sent to the DPP on the cartel leadership.

Kinahan’s legal team in the UK did not return our calls.
