According to the report, the boxing star cannot enter the United States due to his alleged links with Irish mob boss, Daniel Kinahan.

Kinahan is the co-founder of MTK, which represented Fury. Indeed, this is not a good situation for WWE and Fury as both parties would’ve expected to do business and make good money. Fury is perhaps missing out a huge payday with the wrestling promotion.
