I seriously think people who keep looking at old Hamed footages have some kind of homoerotic fixation on the guy.

He's retired. GET THE F*CK OVER IT

Fantastic

Bungu (long reigning titlist at 122lbs)
Soto (reigning WBC titlist)

Pretty good resume, all things considered. Hamed may be overrated in a h2h sense, but his accomplishments at 126lbs are underrated, because he was pretty dominant against solid opposition in the 90's.
Brilliant as always

He gave people a lot of weird angles and he had power. I do tend to think that he had a physicological edge over most of the boxers he faced, but not guys like Kelly, Mc Cillough or Barrera.

Well its obvious that he did that, but I personally don't think the division was ALL that strong when he did it. By the time Hamed was beaten by Barrera, we had of course, the new and improved Barrera, Morales, and eventually Pacquiao.... all three of which I think would have beaten Hamed.

Hamed was a VERY strong natural talent like a Mayweather, Whitaker, Jones, Leonard, etc etc. But I just don't see that he put in the work to become MORE than just a natural talent, so when he got in the ring with someone who HAS put in the work, like Barrera, he got his ass handed to him.

i think in a head to head sense, Hamed awkward style, crazy power and speed would give several former atgs fits...as long as they were come-forward brawlers...that style was eaten up by hamed

I loved to watch him lose to Barrera, he look even more stupid as he still acted arogant in the ring while clearly getting beat. The man is arrogant, annoying, big-headed and incredibly ugly and I'm glad he ran from the sport.
