he was'nt a great boxer,but he made up for that in reflex and awsome power,he banged like a mule holding a sledgehammer.
i think he knew it was time to quit when his reflexs went

he could definately punch, just for me when fellows are that loud and lairy i'm waiting for someone to put a stop to it. i've never taken to him, although when he was operating i wasn't a fan of boxing, i've watched some of his fights though

It was a complete schooling. When a fighter, who has previously been successful by means of his reflexes and unorthodox style, is comprehensively beaten to the punch over and over again then he has been totally schooled. ****** knew that when Hamed was put in with an elite fighter he would be rumbled as he had no plan B or insitinctive adaptibility there to get him out of trouble in such company.

When Hamed was a champion and Junior "Poison" Jones beat Barrera, Hamed went on to tell everyone that he would have beaten Barrera anyway.
A number of years later Hamed's adventure came to an end. All the hype, belittling of opponents etc was exposed by someone he would have sparked out. Barrera didn't only beat Hamed, he beat him over twelve rounds and effectively ended the career of someone who was never going to be beat.
