Prince Naseem Hamed is one of the most charismatic and exciting boxers the world has ever seen, he captured the imagination of the global boxing fraternity and brought in huge viewing figures despite fighting in a weight division which wouldn’t usually be associated with big money fights. He is a former WBO, WBC, IBF, IBO and Lineal featherweight champion and is rated by popular boxing history site Boxrec as the eighth best pound-for-pound British boxer of all time.

Licensed to Thrill: Prince Naseem Hamed is a 1996 VHS documentary produced when Naseem was 22 years old, already a World Champion, and was approaching the peak of his abilities. It features a variety of clips of his world title defenses, training regime, and features interviews with the main himself as well as from his promoter Frank Warren and trainer Brendan Ingle. Included in the edit is a clip of Naseem fighting as an amateur when a teenager. This film is low budget and not much more than a showreel, for a far superior fly-on-the-wall documentary about Prince Naseem check out Naz: Little Prince, Big Fight.
