This fascinating documentary of a 22 year-old Naseem Hamed, was made in 1996, when The ‘Prince’ was at the top of his game.
Naseem Hamed is a 22 year old from Sheffield and is currently one of Britain’s most prominent and wealthiest sportsmen. But how did it all start? In 1985, a class of eleven year old boys had been asked to give a talk to their classmates on hobbies. One by one they struggled to fill five minutes with descriptions of stamp collecting and football programmes. Finally, a slightly built boy dressed in designer sportswear swaggered confidently to the front. With a flick of the switch of his portable ghetto-blaster, the classroom was filled with pulsating hip-hop music.
