I have another ‘friend’ very similar to the doyen in terms of his absolute deluded delusions of grandeur.

He thinks he’s a gangster though and regularly talks about his street fighting days and how hard he is.... he’s very serious about writing his book about his gangster life.

I wonder if he will put the part where I used to have to walk him home because he was scared he was going to get filled in off some lad he side banged on a night out.

These type of people are dicks
...We need more details :yep

There's the boxing trophies but the picutres on the wall really get me. No wife, kids, grand kids or anything like that, just a mass print of Marilyn Monroe and framed photos of himself mean mugging next to various people from the world of boxing. Quite sad really.

The Doyen has taken to training people in his bedsit.

Imagine rocking up for a PT session only to do pad work next to your trainers bed.
Must've been an awkward phonecall when he realised he couldn't top up his Oyster card and had to blag it by inviting the lad to his personal training studio.

"Ah no mate, I said it was personal training in my studio, not my personal training studio."

Is that a room or a studio flat?

Because if it's a studio flat that does show he's turning his life around to some extent
That’s not exactly a huge achievement is it though? The fact that he’s “training” boxers back at his studio shows, to me at least, that he’s not concentrating on turning the right parts of his life around.

Can he really have no friends who’d sit him down and just cut through the bullshit and tell him to knock it off with the “I could have been a contender!” story and just go get a fucking job?

No mate but I would rather be living in a studio flat then in hostels and other peoples settee's like he was meant to have been.It is a step in the right direction but I agree he should be doing a 9 to 5 to get himself out of his shit position,especially as he has two kids.
