I thought about using the term entertaining but then I decided that when it comes to boxing the two terms are interchangeable if you know what I mean? When a fight is entertaining, it's exciting. And when a fight is exciting, it's entertaining... The two go hand in hand.

That magic carpet entrance was awesome, I can't see that ever being topped!

I get your point about the 2-3 round KOs but most of those fighters had either never been KOd before, and for the ones which had been KO'd they were never KOd that quickly.

I thought the McCollough fight was great partly because Hamed completely underestimated him and came in looking like he hadn't trained much. He looked below par, but he showboated and switched from offensive to defensive tactics and did the Ali shuffle in that fight.

And the Barrera fight was a great win for Barrera, again the Prince had got overconfident by that time to the point that Emanuel Steward actually left him! But that fight was entertaining. Hamed kept trying to land bombs but because he hadn't trained properly Barrera could see them coming a mile off. That was an entertaining fight.

The Soto fight was for his WBC title, I though Naz put on a great performance against the Vet.

Nice breakdown, I see what you mean. I heard that Eubank actually imitated Naseem's rope jump after he saw him doing it as an amatuer.

He was pure excitement.

I can understand if you hated him at the time as that was the aim of his game and what made him so much money but if you can't even enjoy the excitement Hamed brought to the sport even now, long after he's retired then that's your loss.

Whilst his resume may not contain a truck load of ATG's it certainly isn't as bad as it's made out to be on this forum. He has some decent names on there but admittedly no ATG's on his win list but some solid contenders.

The ring walks, the interviews, the freakish one punch KO power he had, the flip over the rope, all that together equalled a great deal of excitement, and if your someone like me who just wants to be entertained then you'd appreciate how good he was for the sport of Boxing.

How i wish someone like Hamed would come along now and add that spark into Boxing again.

People would tune in just to see his ring walk.
For me, Tyson would come 2nd. Not a showman, but his ferocity and reputation in and out of the ring made him exciting. Then he became a freakshow.
But Hamed, as an entertainer, show man, talker and KO fighter had it all.

A vid i made.

I dont know how 'no' can be the leading vote in this poll.

He gets the most hate out of any fighter.
