Hamed Plans Ring Return...Again

By Rick Reeno

Haseem Hamed, the self declared "Prince", is making a comeback...again. Since 2002, there have been announcements from either Hamed's brother or someone in his camp about a possible Prince return on at least 4 occasions.

"I've not said anything publicly until now but I plan to fight again in the summer, we have not selected my opponent but the fight will take place in the Middle East and that is definite." said Hamed

Hamed, now 30, is still young enough to make an impact in the lower weight classes. The question many experts ask is if Hamed has anything left. Hamed was exposed by Marco Antonio Barrera in a one-sided fight in 2001. He had one more fight in May of 2002 against journeyman Manuel Calvo, the performance was so bad that the London Arena fans actually booed Hamed at the end of the fight.

In a very surprising move, the Prince just vanished from the sport without a trace. The move stunned the Boxing public. The Prince was one of the biggest trash talkers in Boxing, his swift exit from the sport was very "un-Prince" like for Hamed.

Hamed landed on HBO in what some called the Hagler-Hearns battle of a the featherweights.  Hamed and veteran Kevin Kelley battled in Madison Square Garden in a four round brawl that had fans craving to see more of Hamed. The spectacular ring entrances, cocky attitude and one punch KO power made Hamed a TV sensation as the ratings of HBO were skyhigh when Hamed fought on the network.

There is no word on who Hamed will fight or what weight class he will land in. Those close to Hamed said he was walking around weighing close to 150 pounds.

We have to sit back and see if this time around the Prince is serious about a comeback or this is more talk.

:D I'm not a fan of 'His Arrogance', but I'd sure like to see him get his ass kicked again. The last time was totally excellent! :D
