Prince Naseem Hamed is one of Britain’s greatest ever boxers and may now be about to produce another top fighter

In the 1990s, Naz rose through the ranks and became WBO featherweight champion, holding the belt for six years.

His charismatic personality saw him emerge as a household name in the UK.

He even cracked America with a firefight against Kevin Kelley, but was ultimately humbled in his sole career defeat to Marco Antonio Barrera.

Following the Barrera bout, Naz fought just once more before retiring at the relatively young age of 28.

This decision gave the Prince more time to focus on his family, including middle son Aadam.

Back in 2015, Naz previously said of his children: “My son, Aadam, I’ve told everybody, is going to win Wimbledon one day.

“My eldest, Sami, is 17. He’s going to be an actor, and my other son, Sulaiman, is the cutest.

“He’s the natural fighter. But I don’t want my kids to fight.

“Beyond the smile and humour, the flying carpets and all the ­razzmatazz, I wanted to knock someone out cold.

“If you ruffled those feathers, I really wanted to knock someone out. Why would I want a guy with that same intention standing opposite my son?”

However, despite seemingly not wanting his children to follow in his footsteps, things have changed since.

Aadam has now turned to boxing and regularly posts training clips from the gym.

It is rumoured he is planning to make his debut in the near future and may well be one to watch out for.
