Hamed Pleads Guilty to Driving Charge

Fri Mar 31, 8:25 AM ET

SHEFFIELD, England - Former featherweight champion Naseem Hamed pleaded guilty Friday to dangerous driving in connection with an accident that left one man seriously injured.

The 31-year-old former IBF and WBO champ was arrested in May 2005 after his car was involved in a collision with two other vehicles.

A man driving in another car was airlifted to a hospital with two broken arms and a broken leg. A female passenger in the car was cut and bruised.

Hamed was released on bail following Friday's plea. Sentencing was set for May 12, and he could face jail time.

"Do not take bail as any indication that you will receive anything other than a custodial sentence," Judge Alan Goldsack said.

The flamboyant Hamed, once one of Britain's most celebrated athletes, last fought in May 2002 when he was booed out of the ring after a shaky decision over Spain's Manuel Calvo in London. He was beaten by Marco Antonio Barrera in Las Vegas four years ago, his first defeat in 37 fights.

I hope his style of driving wasn't unorthodox!

He also beat a lot of top ranked fighters. The guy was an incredible talent but he couldnīt take a loss. I hear heīs planning a comeback though...

Hamed was the hardest pucher in his division .Even in the barerra fight Barerra was respectful of that power and was cautious.Hamed just went downhill coz he started to get lazy and very rich.He just started to rely on his natural power and wasn't putting the hours into training.

Hamed was making some noise about making a comeback this year (but he looks like he need to lose some weight)

The UK tabloids are already saying that he will go to jail(they have to sell papers) -i think he will get a fine and community service etc

The man's a fat has-been who alienated so many with his arrogance. A lot of people were just waiting for him to fall:

...In truth, this isn't a story about Islam. It is about Brendan Ingle and the triumvirate: Herol, Johnny and little Naz. But now only Johnny is still boxing. Perhaps they should all grow up, admit what they mean to each other and move on. It doesn't seem likely. There is too much bad history whistling through the old slag heaps and neglected estates of Sheffield. Sometimes it can seem as if a whole city derived its hope from the talent that emerged from that St Thomas's gym. 'I am a stubborn bastard,' Ingle says now. 'That's probably one of my bad failings. I've told the Naz fella what he's going to do with himself. I've predicted it all. When we split, I said, "Let's see what happens in three or four years". It's the same with Herol. They're both prisoners of the past. Naz has put himself in a prison in his own mind - and I'm the jailer. Unless he tells the truth of what he's done, he'll never get out of jail...'

I remember when he lost against Barrera, he claimed that it was Allah's (sp?) will. that it was written for him.
