I had only heard of this guy for two interviews, when I watched them I was impressed cos both guys felt they were there to talk about something else but were probed in the right way to divulge a lot.



Sly fucker!

Frank should have slapped him there and then, bringing up Terry Marsh, who does he think he is?

Thanks for posting that, very long winded & rambling but you can tell Spencer must be getting some serious pressure off people trying to get hold of Doughty.

Also very interesting that Spencer says Doughtys regular source of tout tickets came from an AJ team member KD/David surely AJs making enough without dealing his allocation to touts?

This is is KD/David he's just gone private on Twitter

Also Doughty had a run in with Matchrooms Frank Smith who got Doughty banned from their events & as he goes on holidays with AJ etc Doughty had his ticket supply cut off from KD

This can only end badly for Doughty

If true I can imagine it ending badly for Doughty, "King David" and possibly Frank Smith if he is involved at all.

This kind of stuff just plays into the hands of people who are already dubious of the link with StubHub and damages Matchroom. There is enough money going around without the need for this. Oh well, guess trainers don't come cheap.

Matt Hamilton said Ben was banned from Match room because he turned up hammered to the free event before AJ Brazaele hammered and wasn't allowed into the press area and got abusive.

This KD in his 'manager' role will be selling AJs fighter tickets. The way Hearn has said it before they put up on StubHub and are up there at cost, guessing he sells some to Doughty and lets him deal with the admin.

Sounds like Frank Smith got threatened or similar at a show, so had him banned. Don't think he's done anything untoward.

I get that KD is acting as AJ's manager but why would he get a ticket allocation for a fight he's not involved in? It's not like the tickets were going to be difficult to sell. Then this allocation potentially ends up being touted at an inflated price. Doesn't sound great.

Hope Frank isn't involved as he's clearly onto a good thing at Matchroom. Does show the perils of becoming too close to fighters and their managers though. I'm sure him and Eddie would be disappointed to know where the tickets were alleged to be going and at what price.

No, touts like Doughty give profit on the face value of the tickets to secure allocation it seems KD and or Frank might of being moonlighting naughty boys.
 
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.
To be honest mate you probably did yourself a favour. It got very holier than thou very quickly.

I hope the guy resurfaces soon to explain what has happened but I fear the poor bastards who lost the money may not be seeing it again soon
