NEXT GENERATION Prince Naseem Hamed’s son Aadam Hamed emulates legendary father by dancing while hitting the heavy bag in the gym

Prince Naseem Hamed is one of the finest fighter Britain has ever produced and there is seemingly a new young boxer eager to follow in his footsteps.

In the 1990s, Naz rose up through the ranks and became WBO featherweight world champion, holding the belt for six entertaining years.

His charismatic personality and flamboyant style saw him emerge as a household name in the UK.

He even cracked America with a firefight against Kevin Kelley, but was ultimately humbled in his sole career defeat to Marco Antonio Barrera.

Following the Barrera bout, Naz fought just once more before retiring at the relatively young age of 28.

This decision gave the Prince more time to focus on his family, including middle son Aadam.

Aadam Hamed, now 22, is training as a boxer himself and planning to turn professional in the near future.

He has posted clips to social media showing his talents before and is now truly emulating his father.

In his prime, Prince Naz amazed fans as he often danced during fights as part of his style.

He would taunt opponents and train in a completely unique manner.

This weekend, Aadam put up a video showing his first steps into this style as he displayed nifty footwork while hitting the heavy bag.

Back in 2015, Naz previously said of his children: “My son, Aadam, I’ve told everybody, is going to win Wimbledon one day.

“My eldest, Sami, is 17. He’s going to be an actor, and my other son, Sulaiman, is the cutest.

“He’s the natural fighter. But I don’t want my kids to fight.

“Beyond the smile and humour, the flying carpets and all the ­razzmatazz, I wanted to knock someone out cold.

“If you ruffled those feathers, I really wanted to knock someone out. Why would I want a guy with that same intention standing opposite my son?”

Despite seemingly not wanting his children to follow in his footsteps, it’s clear things have changed since.
