Description : Here we have a fabulous original full-size HBO boxing closed circuit poster for the WBO world featherweight championship title bout held at Madison Square Garden, New York, New York, USA, 19th December 1997.

WOW! What a battle! What a fight! one for the ages!.....Hamed down once in the 1st, 2nd, and 4th......Kelley down once in the 2nd and twice in the 4th.

In late 1997 Hamed made his heavily hyped U.S. debut. His ceremonious arrival on the British Airways Concorde was covered by multiple media outlets. There, he and former WBC title holder Kevin Kelley fought in a highly entertaining bout. This fight marks something of a watershed in Hamed's career, as he was forced, for the first time, to abandon his hands-down style of fighting throughout the entire course of the bout, given the calibre of Kelley. Nonetheless, despite suffering three knockdowns himself, Hamed put Kelley down for a 3rd and final time to win by a 4th round knockout. This was his first of many fights on HBO. He had arrived in America!
