View Full Version : boxing question

I so don't belong here but I've got a question...
about 10 years ago, there was a young welter or featherweight boxer (English) who wore outrageously flashy trunks- he was absurdly quick but incredibly arrogant and would provoke his opponents by keeping his gloves down and attempting a com'on attitude-

does anyone know who I'm talking about and what happened to him?

If your talking about Naseem, he's now a bloated shadow of his former self. Apparently he's on the comeback trail, but i can't see it myself.

He was great to watch but then went rapidly downhill and lost his edge.

Check out some of his fights here www.youtube.com

The talented boxers defining fight was against Marco Antonio Barrera, but came off the loser and also came off completely heart broken and this dented his confidence and arogance that made him a world class boxer. He fought one more fight against Manuel Calvo for the IBO Featherweight and never again. He is hopefully on the comeback but he has alot of work to do and his age and time out would of affected his speed. But his skill as a world class boxer will still be there.

Barrera made him look an idiot in that fight, great move at the end when he span naz round and ran him into the turnbuckle head first wwe style.
