Prince Naseem Hamed’s son Aadam Hamed looks to be a spitting image of his father.
The 23-year-old recently uploaded some flashy footage of him working the speed bag in the gym – and it was clear to see his dad’s influence.
Aadam’s slick footwork and silky skills resemble that of his old man and fans are understandably excited about the youngster’s future as he prepares to make his professional debut on Oleksandr Usyk and Daniel Dubois‘s undercard on August 26 in Wroclaw, Poland.
One fan tweeted: ‘If he’s half as good as his old man, he’ll be worth watching.’
Another wrote: ‘Light on his feet like his pops.’
While a third added: ‘This gets me giddy. Footwork and accuracy look effortless just like dad’s. Can’t wait to see it.’

In the 1990s, Naseem rose up through the ranks and won the WBO, IBF and WBC featherweight titles during an exciting 10-year stint as a professional.
His mix of charisma and flamboyant boxing made him a household name in the sport – and he is widely considered to be one of the best boxers Britain has ever produced.
Following the only defeat of his professional career against former three-weight world champion Marco Antonio Barrera, Naseem would box once more (against the lesser-known Manuel Calvo) before hanging up his gloves at the tender age of 28.
Aadam will hope to continue his father’s legacy when he steps into the ring in two month’s time in what will be his first sanctioned fight.
Despite his obvious talents, Aadam has no amateur experience to speak of, and will instead learn his craft in the paid ranks – a tough ask for any young pugilist.
