Here’s What UK Boxing Legend Prince Naseem Hamed Looks Like Now

20 years after he became the youngest world champion ever, here’s what Prince Naseem looks like now.

Remember Prince Naseem? I wasn’t heavily into boxing as a youngster or anything but I remember seeing highlights of his and thinking he was one of the coolest dudes I’d ever seen. Just the confidence with which he’d make his way out to the ring, front flip into it and bust out a few dance moves to really mess with his opponents’ brains.

That was something like 20 years ago though, and the 5ft 4 Sheffield-born boxer has naturally changed plenty since retiring 13 years ago at the age of 28 (with an awesome 36-0-1 record).

In fact it looks like he’s been chilling pretty hard and packing on the pounds without a care in the world… and why not eh?

Naturally people can put on a fair bit of weight over a 20 year period especially if they stop boxing, but it’s still pretty interesting to see someone who was once in spectacular shape balloon to literally double the size.

At least he still looks the same facially… unlike 2015 Uma Thurman.
