Marco Antonio Barrera (52-3, 38 KOs)
vs. Prince Naseem Hamed (35-0, 31 KOs)
April 7, 2001 at The MGM Grand in Las Vegas
The flamboyant Hamed was regarded by some as the best pound-for-pound fighter in the world, a boxer whose bizarre style, cocky attitude and pulverizing power had overwhelmed the likes of Kevin Kelley, Wayne McCullough, Cesar Soto, Wilfredo Vasquez, Vuyani Bungu, Augie Sanchez and Jose Badillo. The great Barrera had battled Erik Morales, Kennedy McKinney, Junior Jones and Jesus Salud, but had yet to establish himself as the shoo-in Hall of Famer he is today. This was a collision that left a memorable mark on the careers of both fighters.
