The Prince did bring a lot of attention to the lower weights while he was active. You can't deny that.

Great great talent yet probably didnt show all his talent.Takes me back to teenage years staying up with excitement waiting for naz to take somebody out.

His fight against kelley was immense.And his performance against a good if not great champion in robinson at such young age was incredible.

People go on about his punch power yet think people forget about his chin.Sure he got put down a lot but looking back most of the times he got put down were when he was swinging from obscure positions and was caught off balance.

Personally i think if had fought barrera two years earlier there might have been different outcome as had stopped trying and had huge hand issues by the time of fight.or maybe just one of my favourite ever fighters and just want to believe that!lol

Weird that ryan rhodes his old gym buddy has only just finished his career yet naz has been gone for years.Either way great for the sport the attention he brought.

In terms of bringing boxing to the masses,then yes, he brought it to another level in Britain and to an extent in America.

Ive always found it a pity,that he retired so young. People forget that he had only just turned 27 when he fought Barrera.

Conceiveably,his best years were ahead of him
