Speaking on Instagram, Walker said: 'As a big boxing fan it was an honour to meet one of the greats after the game last week! #PrinceNaseem.'

'Prince' Naseem was one of the most entertaining boxers of his era and held multiple world championships during his glittering career.

Naz held the WBO title from 1995-2000, the IBF title in 1997 and the WBC title from 1999 to 2000 and is ranked as the third best British featherweight boxer of all time.
