U4EA - Can't be bothered getting into a discussion, but I recommend EVERYONE (whether you like him or not) read 'Shadows of Boxing: Prince Naseem and Those He Left Behind'. It's written by the head of psychology at Manchester University - who knew Hamed personally - and spells out in the book that he believed Hamed was a psychopath.
Wow. Will definately check that out. Phone Post

The point of the book (as I remember it - it's been years since I read it) was to "out" Hamed as a psychopath.

I don't think it's that big of a shock when there are the reports of his apparent total indifference to the guy who's life he ruined in that car crash.
U know anywhere I can download the pdf? Phone Post

He was everything I hated about modern athletes. I was thrilled when MAB beat him. Can't deny his talent but he was one of those guys I just wanted to see lose. Phone Post 3.0

I just finished the book mate, and I don't know how you came to that conclusion.

I think you have characters mixed up/

It was a bouncer named Lenny who watched the vid of the satbbing with him. Naz never saw it. He also talked about this bouncer more than he talked about Naz.

The whole book is more about the author and his experience's than Naz.

Still interesting, but not what I expected

Well, I perhaps completely misread it but I remember thinking the guy was implying Hamed was a psychopath but couldn't make it too obvious.

I might be wrong though as it's fucking years since I read it.

Sorry if I wasted you time!

There's nothing wrong with having psychopathic traits as long as you don't go out killing people. Some of the best, most successful and most cut-throat businessmen in the world are in fact psychos (no pun intended).

Eric Bloodaxe -

I don't follow boxing closely at all, but I remember him as a entertaining guy.

Also, came to post that he's a fatty now. What is it with Brit boxers blowing up as soon as they lay of fighting. Hatton looked like a sumo wrestler even between fights, didnt he?

A lot of boxers blimp up after their career Phone Post 3.0
