  • DO YOU HEAR WHAT I HEAR? A PRINCE, A PRINCE, BOXING TONIGHT

              HBO will televise the Prince Naseem Hamed-Kevin Kelly
         WBO featherweight title bout tonight from MSG at 9:00 pm ET.
    
         HBO has a six-fight deal worth a "reported" $12M with Hamed
         (NEWSDAY, 12/19).  In Boston, Ron Borges calls Hamed the
         "loudest British invasion" of the U.S. "since the Beatles."
         Borges: "HBO is obviously banking on Hamed having more going
         for him than his 20-minute, smoke-filled introductions, his
         tart tongue, and his somersaults into the ring over the top
         rope, which, as signature moves go, ranks right up there
         with the Ali shuffle."   HBO has put $1.75M into advertising
         tonight's fight (BOSTON GLOBE, 12/19).  In N.Y., Michael
         Katz writes that MSG is expecting a crowd of "at least"
         12,000 tonight (N.Y. DAILY NEWS, 12/19).
