    Never really like Nazeem Hamed but there is no doubt he was a fantastic show man

    I feel like there's other fighters that haven't been mentioned that were showboating kings. Who are we forgetting?

    This. It's not the same to do the showboating in front of tomato cans and to do the showboating in front of roberto durán. The only way hamed would do his showboating to durán is from a coffin.

    I dont remember hamed showboating in front of barrera.

    Plus all that showboating is worth zero when you go home to cry because a bad man beat the heck out of you in the ring and retire, the first time you fight a decent oponent.

    Hamed is just a glorified version of uzzy. All that showboating to be spanked hard once you fight a living body who can box and retire. Disgusting is not enough.

    From that list, which is ultimately, a bit of a fail list. Purley for the fact Sir Joe Callzaghe, the GOAT is not on there. It has to be Prince.

    Calzaghe done a RJJ on RJJ, not some part time binman.

    Enjoy and educate yourselves lads.
