Winning the featherweight title only made Naseem Hamed more confident to try new things in the ring. Which was both a good and bad thing; good for the viewers, as we get to witness some spectacular boxing, but bad for Naseem as he willingly throws caution to the wind, in pursuit of a quick win.
This is undoubtedly one of Naseem Hamed’s quickest fights, and for the very first time, I feel there isn’t much to be said about it. Only that, Naseem was the new featherweight champion and thus, should have been fighting a more credible opponent. All this did was add to Naseem’s image of invincibility, despite not really having fought anyone credible.
This is the first title defence for WBO Featherweight Champion Naseem Hamed.
