Description : Here we have an original full-size HBO boxing closed circuit fight poster for the WBO world featherweight championship title bout held at the Foxwoods Resort, Mashantucket, Connecticut, USA, 19th August 2000.

Prince Naseem Hamed retained his WBO featherweight title sending Augie Sanchez out of the ring on a stretcher after stopping him at 2:34 of the fourth round. Known for his elaborate entrances, Hamed did not disappoint. Although he took only about five minutes to make his way to the ring—past performances have lasted closer to 15 minutes—his arrival was heralded with bursts of fire, Arabic chanting, lasers and firecrackers.

Hamed (35-0, 31 KOs) was a heavy favorite over the WBO’s No. 7 contender, but he was hurt badly in the second round. Ortega ruled the first fall a slip, but it energized the crowd in support of Sanchez, and it began chanting “Augie! Augie!” Hamed slipped again, but he was back up in a flash and connecting with a left, that sent Sanchez staggering back to the ropes. Sanchez (26-2, 23 KOs) came out strong again in the 3d, knocking Hamed around. But Hamed, bleeding from his mouth, cheek and left eye, laughed it off, bobbing away as if he was toying with the challenger. With Sanchez’s right eye swollen, Hamed hit him with a three-punch combination in the 4th that sent him staggering to the floor. Sanchez tried to get up before falling back into the ropes; referee Michael Ortega immediately stopped the fight.
