    First off, it always amazes me how this guy seems to have a loyal following. I just don't get it. It's one of life's big mysteries.

    Well the man has now done a disappearing act after taking 10s of thousands of pounds for non existent Brook-GGG tickets. Yet his Facebook is still full of his followers telling people to calm down and hoping he's OK :lol:

    Mind boggling.

    Please feel free to post your favourite Doughy interviews and funny posts. A personal favourite of mine was when he was pretending to be a real reporter to Eubank Sr and Eubank just goes "who are you" to which Doughty replies "I have a big page on facebook" :rofl

    Also could someone post that rap he did for Ali. That was a good one.

    Funnily enough i was going to post about this.

    I was watching the Chelsea game and was getting distracted at HT by this coming down my timeline.

    Noticed some are concerned about his welfare and others fuming.

    He cancelled his meet and greet with Michael Spinks the other day because of threats he was receiving apparently.

    It's quite unbelievable. Cons people out of thousands of pounds, does a runner and his followers are all "hope he's ok".

    He did something similar a few months back but not on this scale and he paid it back.

    Heard about this about a week ago on Facebook. I've never followed him at all, but always thought Doughty was just a bit weird whenever I came across his posts.
    Apparently he's taken money off actual professional boxers as well? Fancy trying to con a group of people off who are all trained to fight.

    SMH i never knew any of this.

    I have three or four guys on my fb who know him. I watched some of his interviews and fb threads was never sure about him as a man.

    I only found out about this when Dave Allen mentioned it on Twitter the other day. But it seems like all the talk of it is only taking place on Facebook (I don't have an account); this is the only Tweet I could find with info:

    A Facebook "famous" self proclaimed boxing pundit who sometimes raps and sometimes makes shit photoshops and tries to flog them as art.

    He looks like he's had Froch's old nose grafted on top of his own.

    Doughty is scum and I remember when he was training the biggest drug cheat in British boxing post ban Larry Olubamiwo and calling him "the most honest man in boxing"

    He's been thrown out of a few London gyms he's an absolute lowlife nuisance

    I think you are confusing this Doughty guy with @JohnH.

    always seemed like an unusual dude with a few delusions of grandeur.
    Looks like he's messed around some serious people and then seems to have gone to ground completely, money is money, but i i hope he's ok at least...
