CAMPAIGN DIARY: Naseem’s boast rings hollow after WBO bout

There’s an old adage that says you should be wary of blowing your own trumpet, which maybe someone should have pointed out to the WBO world featherweight champion, Prince Naseem Hamed.

There’s an old adage that says you should be wary of blowing your

own trumpet, which maybe someone should have pointed out to the WBO

world featherweight champion, Prince Naseem Hamed.



In Hamed’s latest ad for his sponsor, Adidas, the flamboyant boxer’s

opinions are divided into rounds. At the eighth round, he laughs and

declares to the camera, ’it wouldn’t go that far’.



We hate to point out that in his Saturday night bout against Wayne

McCullogh in Atlantic City, the latter lasted 12 rounds and lost

narrowly on points.



Look’s like cocky Hamed may have spoken too soon.
