Hamed left the sport after one loss and only 30 something fights. HOF my ass. More like his ass was exposed by a superior boxer and he decided to retire instead of fighting other good boxers. How the **** is Hamed a HOF'er?

At the end of the day only 3 choices can get in. And, Hamed doesn't deserve to get in before the likes of JCC, Tyson, and Kostya.

Then you throw in Vazqeuz, Cocoa Kid, Garcia, Serrano, and whoever is going to be new in the ballot for next year. Then is really going to be debatable when Hamed could get in.

Hamed (36-1, 31 KOs), England's flashy and monster-punching "Prince," fought for only 10 years (1992 to 2002) and lost his biggest fight -- a clear decision in his showdown with Marco Antonio Barrera in 2001. Hamed fought just once more before retiring.

But what an exciting, accomplished 10 years they were. It's unfortunate that many allow the loss to Barrera, a future Hall of Famer in his own right, to obscure Hamed's otherwise distinguished career.

Hamed was long considered the best featherweight in the world, was ranked on the pound-for-pound list and, in an era of watered down titles and four major belts, should have held all four simultaneously. (Boxing's politics worked against that achievement.) He defeated alphabet titleholders Steve Robinson (TKO8), Tom Johnson (TKO8) and Cesar Soto (W12) to claim belts. He also beat Wilfredo Vazquez (TKO7), who had been stripped of his version of the title for facing Hamed. Overall, Hamed defended his WBO version of the title 15 times and held the lineal 126-pound championship for three years, all while bringing extraordinary excitement and showmanship to a small weight class that had never before seen the infusion of money it enjoyed during Hamed's heyday. He changed the economic model of the smaller weight divisions and deserves a place in Canastota.

Hamed's American debut against former champ Kevin Kelley (KO4) at Madison Square Garden in 1997, which coincided with Hamed's signing a big HBO contract, was one of the most exciting fights of the decade. He also beat notable foes and former titleholders Wayne McCullough, Paul Ingle, Vuyani Bungu and Manuel Medina.


His reasons for Hamed.. and anyone who was watching boxing around that time can't really disagree.

Excellent posting. Anybody who disagrees with Hamed is clueless. Being there and watching his career since the mid to late 90's was one of the most exciting times for me as a boxing fan. A Prince fight was always a great show and his competition wasn't really as bad as many people might think. Kevin Kelley wasn't as washed up as people try to make him out to be, he was just totally out of his element when he was in the ring with Naz.

Hamed would have gotten destroyed by Morales, Marquez, and even a one dimensional version of Pacquiao. **** man, Hamed is lucky fighters like Marquez, Vazquez, Gamboa, Caballero, and Lopez weren't fighting when he was.
