If being a fanny stopped you from being recognised as a great at anything, a large proportion of people would be ignored. The most talented people are often utter twats.
to be honest so many people wanted ali koed....only later did they accept him.

if naz came back he would certinaly become a atg he had so much power for a small guy (which became his down fall)

he just became a pure puncher no combo's no placing lesss counters just big bombs hoping he could end the fight.

he was incredibly hard to hit and as unorthodox as he was he could bang brawl and take a beating.

even in his "exposure" (which is silly as it was known for ages that naz could get outboxed it was just he was always going to end strong and land the harder faster shots and end the fight) to berrera it wasnt a one sided beat down it was more of a loss by being out pointed welll it was devestating and he fought one more time with little fire and it looked over and out for him.

Despite the fact that as a person he's an utter, lowlife scumbag he was a very good fighter. Based purely on boxing ability and his career I'd probably be inclined to give him the nod.

Your the joke, steve robinson shouldn't be in the hall of fame, i agree with that, however you have stated that naz shouldn't either. Have you ever seen the fighter's that get into the hall of fame, naz is a lock for the hall of fame like him or not and to say he was a nobody etc shows up what little knowledge you have about boxing, go back to the contender.

What your're trying to say i no nothing about pro boxing.....considering i'm a pro that would be very difficult AGREED. And yes on further thought naz does semm to merit induction, i probably just had clouded vision because i hated the way he treated his opponents. Also i never said he was a nobody.

The most respected opinions in boxing aren't generally those of boxers though are they? After Lewis' victory over Vitali, Duke McKenzie said 'if he'd have put in a performance like that against Roy Jones or Chris Byrd, he'd have lost'.

See that is what is wrong with that statement. Some boxers actually are excellent judges.
