Prince Naseem Hamed

world title defences: 15 defences
Lineal world titles won: F.W lineal champ for 3 years
World Champs defeated: 8 world champs (6 by KO)

for anyone saying that hamed had no heart..they should watch his legendary fight with Kelley in '97..he got knocked down 3 times got up each time and KTFOed kelley in round 4.

do you think Hamed will EVER get inducted?
Simple answer because Gatti fought in america , Unlike european boxing fans who stay up till stupid hours of the night to see fights around the world
American boxing fans dont even believe fights happen unless there on HBO
