Ishe Smith Vs. Ahmed Kaddour on The Contender

March 14, 2005 12:03 AM by Joe Blackmon

Ishe_smithAhmed_kaddourThe fight that was being built up in the first two preview episodes of The Contender finally happened in the March 13, 2005 premiere of The Contender.  The West Coast Contender boxers once again won the competition, and Ishe Smith from the West Coast chose to box Ahmed Kaddour from the East Coast.  Ishe and Ahmed had an obvious dislike for one another, and it had looked like they might fight one another before even making it to the ring.  As Ishe and Ahmed squared off in the ring, the cameras panned the crowed, and they showed a glimpse of several stars including Mr. T sitting ringside.  Mr. T’s presence seemed appropriate since Ahmed Kaddour had a Hollywood type flair reminiscent of Mr. T.  In contrast, Ishe Smith was built up as the family man boxer.  After a quick start by Ahmed Kaddour, Ishe Smith quickly took control of the fight and won in an unanimous decision.

    Ishe Smith showed alot of respect by not lowering himself to pigheaded Ahmed Kaddour actions and beating him. Ahmed didnt show any respect towards boxing, his peers,and most importantly SOCIETY!

    I didn’t like the fact that Ahmed was cocky but when you’ve got the skills that he has, you kinda can’t blame him. There’s also some resemblance to the cocky attitude of Muhammad Ali in his prettyness. Even though Muhammad Ali was cocky in that sort of way he still achieved greatness plus I can’t forget it was Ishe that started the rivalry by picking on Ahmed. If only Ahmed didn’t have his head full of anger and pride, he might have gotten his head straight and won but I guess that’s a flaw he’s gotta work on. He’s got a good record though so you can’t hate.

    i thought ahmed was totaly robbed of his victory it was very obvious to me that ishe was making contact with ahmed with his punches but as ahmed had such a tight guard these punches by ishe was only hitting the gloves of ahmed, whereas ahmed was landing good punches even within the first 10 seconds of the fight. Ahmed was robbed

    I agree, Ahmed was robbed of his victory. Ishe’s punches were not connecting with Ahmed’s head and were hitting his gloves.
    Ahmed totally outboxed Ishe and he even knocked him down in the third round with a classic upper cut. You could see Ahmed is a man with no fear from the start of the fight and I love the arrogance about him.I hop he makes it big because he desserves it.

    People see him as arrogant, too confident and cocky, but really he’s only super confident – and he damn right should be with the skills and talk he shows. I saw him winning 2 rounds easily and maybe another. Ahmed should have won that but he only lost cause he took it well personal and didn’t have a game plan. Ishe Smith though is still a brilliant boxer, but I prefer Ahmed cause of his arrogance.

    He’s gonna go big, next world champ – The next De la Hoya

    Talented, good looking, motivated , all sum up ahmed in 3 words. Ahmed is a great boxer and I feel that he is a big role model to all amateur boxers. I love his attitude. Someone mentioned ahmed being pigheaded I totally disagree with this whoever wrote it must be some jealous talent less freak!!! I mean the fact that ahmed lost the fight against ishe just made ahmed stronger inside he was still ready to go back in the ring again for a rematch that was jus a eye opener for him to be aware that jus a bit more and he could knock him out!!!thats all for know p.s. Ahmed is future mike tyson

    Ahmed did go over the top when boxing sugar, i agree with that. Its funny how Ishe starts the whole thing with Ahmed and then goes bak to his wife to cry his little eyes out. I almost felt sorry for him…NOT. Ishe was jelous of what he wore the scrat bag and of what he looked like. I mean with them big lips, of course he wud be jelous of him! The muppet.

    Ahmed had no fear of any1 and he undoubtedly has the skill. As for Ishe, he is nothing bt a COWARD! Laterz

    Yo people listen: anyone who acts that cocky is covering up their own sense of personal weakness; Ahmed actually had no cool: he flipped off the crowd and had no respect for anyone; and wake up: look into his eyes at the beginning of the fight – he was scared. And he’s still fuming about the fight to this day to again cover up his weakness; Ishe Smith beat him and properly squelched his spirit.

    Ahmed will someday be the next muhamed ali.When he fought Alfonso Gomez he almost knocked him out.Anybody that say he’s a wus or pigheaded are just lealous because he’s an awesome boxer.He could beat up Ishe or anybody in the contender and that’s a fact.

    I was at that fight, Ahmed got beat. He’s a good fighter and arrogance is okay too, but he has to learn how to throw his hands more. Inactivity cost him that fight, he dropped the ball in both of his fights. Ishe is the one who got robbed against Sergio!
    Ahmed may get a shot at a World Title, but he’ll get knocked out.

    Ahmed is a much better fighter then Ishe. Man.. I was so sad when Ahmed lost and Ishe won. Ahmed was so good. Only thing I didnt like of ahmed whas how he went on against sugar ray. Fuck Ishe I hate that guy.. Big mouth but no skills. I hope there will be a rematch between them. Than Ahmed will show the whole world how good he is and what a pussy Ishe is. And by the way Ahmeds girlfriend is so HOT!!!

    I dont understand why people attack Ahmed while they actually should be attackig Ishe. He was the one who started the feud. Ahmed showed no fear and Ishe was crying. I know Ahmed was cocky and stuff like that. But Ishe was FAKE. Ahmed will beat him up dude. Ishe will be crawling back home to his big fat attitude wife. While Ahmeds chick Brandy is soo sexy…dude I dream every night of her.

Ishe smith is nothing dude…I hope there will be a rematch…I know Ahmed was cocky but hey Mo Ali was cocky 2. Ishe hat to much selfesteem if u ask me. I cant w8 for the rematch dude

    Ahmed is better than Ishe man.. Ishe is a Fakebitch with all his talk. Why didnt he fought Ahmed immediately and let Jesse fight first. I have no respect for him at all. The feud between the 2 of them started earlier. It started at the tryouts. Ishe and his friends trashtalked against him when he walked in the hotel where all the fighters were because he was wearing beautiful clothes. I was there man i saw Ishe trashtalking to him for nothing and saying that being an european champion is nothing. Man… I would love 2 see a rematch…ahmed will destroy him… when there gonna fight in a real boxingmatch instead of that fake hollywood boxingbullshit. Although I liked the contender very much. Why did Ishe trashtalked with everybody like Jesse, Anthony and Peter and why did Ahmed only with Ishe…man THINK about it. So this is what I ask of all the true boxers out there if you ever see Ishe Smith, WHOOP HIS ASS
    Hit him with sticks, bricks, rocks, throw shit at him
    Kick him, spit on him, treat him like a hoe, bitch-slap him
    Do it for Jesse, do it for Ahmed, do it for Anthony
    Do it for Peter, do it for boxing, do it for Europe
    Do it for Fun, do it just to do it, fuck it
    He’s a bitch, he ain’t gon’ hit you back, he’s nothin!
    Shit in five years we’ll all be seeing him in the gym
    And he’ll be bussin rings that bitch, cleanin the toilets

    I hate them both…Ishe and ahmed. But I hate ahmed less because he didnt fool around when it comes up to a fight. Ishe hasnt got the boxing mentality. I think in a few years Ahmed will become the world middleweight champion…I hate him. But heck better him than that fakeboxer Ishe “bitch” smith.

    Ahmed had Ishe beat before the match even started. Let’s face it, Ishe might think he was triumphant but in truth, he only marginally walked away with the win due to his experience. Ishe picked on Ahmed to mentally bring him down, but eventually it had a reverse effect. Ishe Felt fear. And once a fighter tastes fear before a fight, he will always have this problem looming over him. Ahmed tore a deep gash in Ishe’s game, and Ishe walked away mentally injured forever.

    As for the fight iteslf, Ahmed showed his mental strength, walked away with his head up high and ready to face tomorrow. That is a true fighter. He will be back and he has the potential. You can call him arrogant… but I dont remember a great fighter who wasnt. They have to be… what do you want … someone who cries ‘mummy’ before a game… like Ishe. Ishe was fake, when the fight was on.. he wanted to back out… but Ahmed was for real.

    Ishe shouldnt have picked on him… so what, if he wears flashy clothes and wasnt born in america. As the prejudice IShe said ‘this is america’… so what… just get on with it.
