So I just came across The Doyen's old website:

https://web.archive.org/web/20150704002144/http://doughtyboxing.co.uk/

"Ben is viewed as an ideal trainer for fighters wanting to improve the fundamentals of speed, rhythm and balance."

Also says he sparred Darren Barker.
He's never spared Darren and that was confirmed by Barker on twitter when he publically called him a thief and a wannabee.

He did take an absolute hiding of Gary Barker though when Gary was 15.

Darren Barker isn't really the sort of person to belittle even his rivals so it says something about Doyen to get that treatment.

He may be off the beer but the ego still needs a 12 step program

In homage to what would have been Muhammad Ali’s 78th Birthday, Michael Olajide Jr asked me to compose a boastful rhyme about myself...

Here is my ‘humble’ effort:

I was born a Caucasian
But no one told me
Such was my crush
On the Butterfly - Bee

Adept at the shuffle
Before I could walk
My jab in your face
Like a stray champagne cork
My movement and grace
In the ring an illusion
They grope for superlatives
In their confusion
A chin made of granite
With God given speed
When it comes to nutrition
Most folks are agreed
That fast carbohydrates
Are best to avoid
Don’t mess with White Sugar
You’ll be null and void....!
