The section about the Barrera fight is too short.

The night Naz's disgraceful treatment of fellow pro's in the ring hit a brick wall is the biggest story of his career.

He was very good and great to watch but I thought MAB gave him the medicine he richly deserved. His behavior towards Belcastro on the night he won the Euro belt made my blood boil. I never liked him after that.

Is still difficult to form an opinion as to exactly how good he was as the Ingle gym don't exactly focus on the basics and fight strategy. Good reflexes, speed and power but he couldn't get away with earlier mistakes he made in his career against Barrera. I don't think many who had dealings with him on his way up would have been shedding too many tears on the night of the Barrera fight though. Having said that, I felt a bit sorry for him on the night of that fight - there was nothing coming from the corner. Watching McIntosh plough towards Bellew the other week shows not much has changed in camp Ingle. On a serious note, somebody needs to get hold of Naz as he's looking like heart attack material.
