And the Sheffield-born former 9st king rents a £1.4million townhouse backing on to Windsor Castle.

Naz, 48, retired at just 28 with a record of 36 wins and just one loss.

Dad-of-three Naz held three of the four major world belts — the WBO, IBF and WBC — and was widely seen as the true champ.

He returned from the Barrera loss with a lacklustre 2002 win over Manuel Calvo for the lesser IBO version in his final fight.
