Do you know how long Ray Barton got mate,and what for,i asked my lad but apparently it’s not the done thing to ask each other such details.I asked around about him and seems he is a proper heavyweight villain made a fortune apparently also heard he can be a good guy very generous one of these dangerous gentlemanly types sounds an interesting fellow just wondered if it’s months or years he is doing hopefully it’s not for anything too ghastly as well

probably wise to keep people like that close Gerry and not fuck them off just because you're on TV. I don't blame him at all mate

This guy Ray Barton is apparently known as "Rolex Ray" . A previous poster says Nigel Benn's been going to visit him. Interestingly enough Benn had a mate called "Rolex Ray" Sullivan - is this the same guy going under 2 different names ?
Seems too much of a coincidence for Benn to have two different mates with the same nickname, also this "Rolex ray" Sullivan was supposed to have been a millionaire and owned a gym, just like Barton ??

I think your find names like rolex,goldfinger,diamond are nicknames given to a lot of successful modern day criminals a bit like a badge of honour sort of thing,off the top of my head rolex dave king rolex chris fuller goldfinger john palmer.

I guess it speaks volumes about benns choice of mates i know he was also friendly with some of the essex boys gang as well

Goes to show what a fuckin diamond geezer our Ray is, know wot I mean mush? Sticks to his china's even after old bill gives em a bit of bird. :i am genuinely amused:

I’m no good with computers Gerry but it was only the last bit of the article anyway so i’ll copy it for you i think it was around June or July last year.

“ Prosecutor Philip Evans Qc said that Mr Barton has amassed an estimated 20 million pound fortune including luxury homes in Essex,London Docklands,Cyprus and has the aura of legitimacy having invested heavily in a catalogue of businesses regularly returning accounts to Companies House,suggesting nothing untoward on the face of it,yet appears to have originally began in business with large amounts of cash and assets for which there remains no explanation.
The ex boxer and former owner of Pumps Gymnasium in Forest Road Walthamstow was acquitted in 2007 accused of putting up the money for the contract killing of a high ranking police officer following Operation Tiberius,the officer later left the country after unsuccessfully bringing a private prosecution against Mr Barton and two other local businessmen.
Alan Compton speaking on behalf of Mr Barton’s legal team stated that a first stage appeal will be lodged against the conviction and sentence over the coming weeks “
