That interview with Whyte was awkward.

I was expecting Whyte to attack him at the start..

I buy all my boxing tickets from facebook pundits....
Yep watching that video i was cringing at the convo.

Sadly i suppose people have met him and felt he was genuine. The love he gets on facebook is unreal. I do wonder how many of those 5k followers have actually met him before.

There is a video where he is talking about being turfed out of his home by his wife and sleeping in the gym.
 
Used to follow his page for a few years and was pretty vocal on it at one point but un-friended him for a couple of reasons.

Firstly his followers started to annoy me, making him out be a the second coming at one point.

Secondly, it became very much a case of 'this is my opinion, you're wrong if you think otherwise'. I suppose we can all be like that but it got a bit much.

Honestly these stories don't really surprise me too much which is a shame. Not followed him for a year or so so can't really comment but it's a shame for the poor sods he has screwed out of thousands of pounds.

Right..

Update on his FB someone is claiming Ben is in Marbella.
:lol:

Funnily enough i thought you may of known him as i remember you being in the East end.

I noticed that with him, That ...... and aloof posting style was a reason i never requested his page.

A bloke missus has left him because he has paid back friends who got scammed? Sounds bit off.

Was this guy that well respected that people would trust him with thousands?
Hamilton can overexergerate things so wouldn't be shocked.

In saying that though it sounds like he's got over 50k out of this so people obviously did trust him.

I wouldn't be shocked if some wives did go mental when their husband goes "hunny, you know that Ben guy on my FB?. Well i gave him 2 grand for tickets to Golovkin Vs Brook and he never sent them. Don't worry though i'm sure he's working on something. His reputation is on the line. In the meantime i've pawned our wedding rings"..

ha ha ha....as an outsider its funny as fuck, obviously not for the guys who lost money. Matt Hamilton is doing his darndest to distance himself from Doughty, which i suppose is fair enough as hes nothing to do with it. Im hearing anything between 40k and 60k, thats serious shit. I understand ones have contacted the cops over it

basically sold a lot of tickets for fights and meet n greets (michael spinks) to a lot of people and apparently just fucked off with the money. Not 100% on this but i heard spinks came over to the UK for it too, maybe he'd other events, i hope for his sake he has

This is a seriously long term con he's been putting into place. Feel sorry for the victims.

Shows how thick he is to have done a bunk to somewhere in Spain given the huge ex-pat communities that exist there. He'll be found and returned on a European arrest warrant - I guarantee it.

And he established the credibility for this long firm on Facebook? Am I missing something?

Not 100% mate but i think you could be right. He did use to get press credentials from Matchroom until Eddie got pissed off and banned him
