Naz now rents a £1.4million townhouse backing on to Windsor Castle

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

Naz seemed lost in thought on a shopping trip and walking his dog near his Berkshire home.

One onlooker said “He used to be known for his killer punch and showmanship but now hardly anyone recognises him.

“But it’s good to see Prince Naseem living in the shadows of proper royalty.”

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

Only Mexican great Marco Antonio Barrera was able to beat him, with a unanimous points decision win in Las Vegas in 2001.

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.

The star, worth £50million, said of his decision to quit: “After winning the fifth world title belt, I just thought, why not be one of the smart ones in boxing?”
