'Prince' Naseem Hamed to enter boxing Hall of Fame with Riddick Bowe and Ray Mancini



Last Updated: 04/12/14 8:11pm

Naseem Hamed is among the latest batch of fighters to be inducted into the International Boxing Hall of Fame.


Sky Bet
Sheffield's Hamed defended the WBO's featherweight belt 15 times and also held the IBF and WBC versions during a 37-fight career in which he was beaten just once.

That defeat came in Las Vegas against Marco Antonio Barrera and the 'Prince', whose flashy style and fast hands were his trademark, fought just once more before quitting the ring in 2002 - a decade after turning professional.

Hamed is one of three modern fighters chosen for induction in 2015 along with two more former world champions from the United States - heavyweight Riddick Bowe and lightweight Ray Mancini.



Japanese lightweight Yoko Gushiken is inducted into the 'Old Timer' category, while referee Steve Smoger and manager Rafael Mendoza make it as non-participants....

I genuinely don't think naz is fussed about accolades or what people think of his legacy. He made no secret about wanting to earn a fortune and he certainly did that.

I think he's long since stopped caring about boxing, the business side may have stolen his love for it.

I heard it was visa issues that stopped him attending.

Responds promptly, six months after the original post.

he was only inducted last week.

the presenter just read out a brief note of his ring achievements and that was it.

Hatton and Gatti were just crude brawlers, but I would definitely put Mcguigan in a league above
