Default Naseem hammed should have been great

I think he could have been the best featherweight ever with that amazing power.

He was another Tyson, who threw away what bought him to the top and relied on a punch to get him through.

Thats all fine until you run into a guy who works that out like MAB, Holyfield etc.

When your Plan A is a homerun punch, your heading for a schooling.

Hamed was on the cusp of greatness IMO, hed still beat alot of guys H2H.

IMO, he knocks Pacqiao out at FW, but thats just my opinion.

Hamed relied on reflexes, didnt have solid fundamentals.
Tyson had ultra technical boxing skills and solid fundamentals,
he just didnt have the same level of athleticism or skill after
Serving years in prison. 80s Tyson would have destroyed
any version of Holyfield. Its not that Holyfield had his number
so much as it is that Mikes technique had diminished. Anyway
something of a paradox, perhaps in the same vain as ali, if
Hamed had solid fundamentals he might not have been as good
or dazzling, nevertheless if manny had control of him the
barerra fight could have gone differently. Manny steward is
a genius.

When he was focused he was a animal and a clown.

Yes, he should have been. If he'd ever bothered to learn how to defend himself or throw a jab or gained any serious grasp of the fundamentals of boxing, he could have been. But that logic so could so many other heavy-handed guys who flopped as soon as they fought genuine top competition.

Manny should've told him to do it in his fights then.

He did in the fights before Marco.

But manny said Naz was already on the decline before that fight.

Not for me , he was off balance when he missed , not the sign of a great fighter,he was a great puncher ,that is all that was great about him. He also avoided a couple of guys.
He was one guy that really believed he was wonderful, I think he is a wretched human being.

Speaking as the future heavyweight champion of the world and a twelve-year-old, I'd like to say that Hamed could've been the greatest p4p fighter in the history of the featherweight division during some of his active years and Manny Stewart's surname only has one 't'.
