Customer Review

on 14 November 2008
Naseem Hamed was the hardest punching Featherweight I have ever seen. He combined this natural ability, to knock people out with one punch, with speed, cat like reflexes and an awkward style that only the best could figure out. Unfortuneatley, Hameds natural talent was match only by his arrogance. He tried to talk like Ali, but not having wit for it ended up coming across as just as idiot. His over-the-top showboating during his fights were annoying and very disrespectful to those that he shared a ring with.

He rapidly rose to the WBO Featherweight Title but once he had reached the top, a slow decline set it. Fight by fight he started to get hit a little more, visited the canvass numerous times only for his unbelievable power to bail him out of trouble. The problem was that at some point he started to believe his own hype. He sacked his long-time trainer and brought in a 'yes-man'. He started calling the shots in training and stopped the road-work. He didnt train properly and by the time he got to fight a true great in MArco Antonio Barerra, he was reduced to being a flat-footed, single-shot punching brawller .... he was then predictably taken to school by the great Mexican.

Since his retirement, Hamed has been disgraced and imprisoned whilst continuing to conn the public into believing he may come back into the ring. Hamed will always be remembered as an entertaining, yet annoying fighter that peaked and declined early in his career.

This DVD is not a good sports documentary at all. Its cheaply made and doesnt contain his full career. The fights are entertaining and simply on that level this DVD can be enjoyable. Overall, however, this is a poor DVD and not worth buying.
