Frampton became one of the most popular British boxers of his era. ‘The Jackal’ was a two-weight world champion and had many entertaining battles. The Northern Irishman also won praise because he spoke about male mental health issues and depression. But he was also controversial because of his association with MTK Global.
MTK Global was a combat sports promotion that managed many boxers and MMA fighters. However, the brainchild of the project was the notorious Irish gangster Daniel Kinahan. Frampton abandoned his previous trainer Shane McGuigan because MTK promised to take a smaller cut. Meanwhile, Kinahan continues to ruin many lives across the world (via Ring TV).
