    Peak Vs Peak, he is the underdog against anyone of them.

    Could Hamed have beaten the Marquez who lost to Norwood, the Morales who got bullied around by Guty Espadas, or the Barrera who got wiped out by Junior Jones? Much harder question to answer. In hindsight, there were windows of opportunity for Hamed to take an ATG scalp, if he had been more willing to take those risks at the time.

    I don't think there was a time when the Pacqauio fight could realistically have happened, but if you want to throw the 2000 version of Pacquaio into the mix, again it's a much tougher fight to call than their respective ATG standing would indicate.

    28 years old yes but he'd already been a pro 10 years by that point.

    Look it's no secret, his hands were in bits towards the end and following the split with Ingle... but the fame, money etc that he came into went to his head. The big entourage, ballooning up in weight, not putting the training in.... aside from the hands, he ****ed it up for himself.

    Mayweather called him out but Hamed avoided the question at the time. How much was down to Naz and how much was Frank Warrens matchmaking remains a mystery but no coincidence him, Calzaghe and Hatton only made the 5 star fights AFTER they ditched Warren.
