Naseem Hamed (born 12 February 1974) is a retired British boxer and former Bantamweight and Featherweight champion born to Yemeni parents who emigrated to Sheffield. He was commonly known by the nickname Prince Naseem or Naz.
Hamed was known for his boxing antics and spectacular ring entrances that have included being deposited in the middle of the ring by an elevator, which was set up specially for the event near the roof of the Manchester Evening News Arena, being carried into the ring on a palanquin, walking into the ring on a fashion runway style walk way and walking into the ring with a Halloween mask for his fight with Wayne McCullough (fought on Halloween night of 1998).
Hamed is also known for his unorthodox behaviour outside the ring. He had an altercation at Heathrow Airport with former boxing world champion Chris Eubank, showing off his belts and reminding Eubank that he was no longer a champion. He was managed by Barry Hearn then Frank Warren and finally by his eldest brother Riath Hamed. In May 2006, he was jailed for 15 months for dangerous driving but was granted an early release in September 2006. Hamed was awarded the MBE in 1999, but it was revoked in December 2006, after his jail sentence.
