    Default Naseem Hamed Career Recap

    Fan film by me here;



    People forget he was picked by 28 out of 30 fight writers going into the Barrera fight, he would also have been hugely favoured over Marquez if they had fought.

    For me he is a figure who was probably over rated at the time of his peak and has since become under rated.

    He didn't beat anyone in the P4P top 10 at the time of the fight but he head beat Tom Johnson who would probably have been ranked about 11-15 and Kevin Kelley and Vuyani Bungu who at the time would have probably been ranked about 16-20.

    One of the most interesting and exciting styles of his era. On a personal level a total asshole though obviously.

    How do you think he would have matched up with the fighters who he didn't face Marquez, Morrales and Pacquiao (came a couple of years later, narrow miss) and the best of this generation Lomachenko?

    Do you enjoy causing conflict on these boards?
    Do not let success go to your head and do not let failure get to your heart.

    He would never have beaten Floyd.

    He has the power to knock anyone out but I think Pac might have been too busy for him..mmmm...not sure.

    Marquez..yes.

    It is a well-known fact and established on saddo that Marquez avoided Naz by not really trying to face the dangerous and peak Naz.

    Floyd was no body at the time and was at the higher weight which Naz did not want to move up to.

    By the time Naz had fought MAB he was past his best, burnt out like a bright star, and fell out of love with boxing.

    Naz was the best at featherweight and unified the majority of the major belts but was steadily declining and getting knocked down.
    I think they would have been good matches against Marquez, Morales and Pacquiao.

    It would have been very interesting how Lomachenko would have handled that style from Naz. Think he could have knocked them all out.

    You know I bumped into Hamed last Thursday on my lunch hour.

    Just walking along and there he was - no one else recognised him so i just went up to him and engaged in conversation.

    I did mention to him that he never officially retired and he just smiled and said "no I haven't" and then I got a chuckle when I asked him why he never gave Said Lawal a rematch.

    I also took my first ever celebrity selfie and fucked it up big time as had the flash on and my eyes closed - I look like I'm on drugs.

    Always felt short changed by his career the way he walked away but it was fun while it lasted. I did pick Barrera to beat him at the time of the fight (by late KO mind) but that was on the old Naz board where some of us met. He went in expecting to knock out MAB early which was stupid given MAB's credentials.
