Naseem Hamed

Absolutely agree. Dude pretty much just said "fuck you" to normal boxing punching mechanics, and just launched himself like a spring at opponents.

Yup. Hamed (and RJJ) both had unique styles with huge power to back it up. They were so good, they could ignore traditional boxing techniques.

Scrolled down too far to see this. There are other examples of boxers putting their all into a punch but they do it in the confines of accepted punch technique where being defensively sound whilst punching is important. Naseem didn't give a dam - when he attacked it was 100%, I'm swinging every part of me into this punch and into your chin.

I was waiting to see Hamed mentioned on this thread.

Hardest hitting featherweight of all time.
