To compare with Nas is a bit misleading really.

Nas was genuinely world class. He fought and beat a lot of champions, had genuinely concussive power, ridiculous instinctive reactions and paved the way for smaller fighters to get big fight purses by creating more widespread interest in those divisions.

Where he erred was in believing his own hype. He thought he could knock anybody out with one punch and his life became such a circus that he apparently only trained for 10 days for the Barerra fight. You can't beat an All Time Great on that training no matter how hard you punch and his ego couldn't handle the defeat.

Ego got in the way of his career - leaving Brendan Ingle and his Sheffield gym was the beginning of the end and it all went downhill from there.

Nas was world class. Khan isn't and I don't think he ever will be.

Interesting note - they're expecting Nas to possibly inducted into the International Boxing Hall of Fame next year. You have to be 5 years out of the ring, which he is, and there is now a bit of a clamour to induct him. It helps that the potential intakes from 5 years ago aren't great too.

I'm on my phone so can't post links, but have a look on YouTube at Gorilla Productions Prince Naseem. Amazing skills and brutal punching.
