Former WBC world champion and Setana Sky, BBC boxing analyst Richie Woodhall described him as: “Birmingham’s next world champion! He’s a very good kid, has loads of potential and bags of ability. There are two types of fighters, boxers and box fighters and I believe Nasser can do both. He hits very hard, can hit and move and his ring craft is exceptional. He’ll go all the way.” Nasser trains and spars with some of the best fighters in Britain and will have stints in some of the best gyms in the US. Since turning pro Nasser has received rave reviews from the press, TV and newspapers, and in only his third fight he defeated a former British Master Champion in convincing fashion.
