Prince Naseem Hamed made a rare appearance in the boxing world commentating on the fight between Chris Eubank Jr and George Groves.
Hamed who was an entertaining world champion in his day, had some home truths to tell after the fight was done.
He felt that the hype built up around Chris Eubank Jr was not necessary and labelled the belt that he had as “some sort of belt.”
He even made reference to some of his pre-fight activities that included videos of him going around to various houses that he planned on purchasing after knocking Groves out.
Here is what Hamed had to say afterwards:

“You’re either good at boxing or you’re not.”
No pulling his punches there. He got quite a bit of positive feedback for his remarks too.
Of course, he also came in for the usual bashing from some of the boxing community for his appearance since retiring from the sport.
At any rate, his analysis while a bit brutal does carry some merit to it.
Eubank Jr can still be a very, very good fighter and improve more one suspects – but likely a move back to his natural weight of 160lbs is next.
