Well I thought it about time to confirm the growing list of Hamed critics
or the "shortsited idiots" to Hamed fans.

Here goes :-

   TODD
   ALEJANDRO OLAGUE
   DAVID M. MURPHY
   PABLO
   KEITH READ
   IVAN WEISS (SEATTLE TIMES !!)

Well, come feb 8th when Hamed fights Tom "boom boom" Johnson in a WBO/IBF
unification bout, the truth about the "hype" shall arise.

I guess you can put me down on that list, although my biggest complaint was
not that Hamhead was not any good. It is that he and his fans are praising him
as an all time god of boxing when he has fought unknowns and looked like ***
the two times I have seen him.

The fact that it takes a world champion or that people have been saying
someone in another weight class can beat him speaks highly of Hamhead, but
NOBODY could live up to what Hamhead and his fans have promised. If Hamhead
does get knocked out of boxing he could always turn to selling automobiles.

   Add me - I'll bite. Johnson KO2, after one of those sweet uppercuts by
Hamed floats wildly upwards and Johnson counters with an even sweeter straight
right which Hamed doesn't even see. After he's unable to beat the count, Hamed
gets up and still does his flip, unaware he's lost... :-)
   If I'm right (and I don't expect to be about the round or the events I've
detailed after the brutally quick and relatively painless KO - that was a
joke), I want a full apology by Glenn for calling us "shortsighted idiots",
e-mailed to each person who has their name on the above list by Feb 8.

I'm not crazy about him either so add me to your list.  He certainly is not
a pleasure to watch--he looks terrible.  He does seem to get the job done, but
as Matador has often pointed out, he has not fought the higher caliber fighters.

On the emotional side, I would just LIKE to see him lose because he's such an
obnoxious beep.  Of course, that's what sells tickets.  You know, like when
*everybody* watched Carolina-Dallas because they hate Dallas.  Oops, sorry,
I'm drifting off into rec.sports.football.

I want in also - after a well done crow after my Medina UD pick, I
have faith in Johnson knocking "The Princess" off her pedestal.

Now if we can have him KO the ham Head straight after the bell
I would be a very exhilerated woman & you know what that means ;-)

What a tosser. Nothing better to do. You're a disgrace to the UK.
