Nathan to fight for British Heavyweight title
Whitby Morrison’s Nathan Gorman has signed up for the biggest fight of his career so far; on 13 July he will challenge the also unbeaten Daniel Dubois in his quest to become British Heavyweight Champion.
At just 21 and 22 respectively, Gorman and Dubois are already recognised as two of the top young heavyweights in world boxing and the pair will now put their perfect professional records on the line with the coveted Lord Lonsdale belt at stake.
In a fight that bucks the trend of unbeaten boxers avoiding each other, Dubois v Gorman is the domestic heavyweight dust up that the fans have been crying out for.
Surprised by Dubois’ acceptance of the fight, Nathan said;
“I am very surprised, to be fair,” he confessed.
“I was probably expecting it to be next year – in the summer time probably – and that is what I thought. When the phone call came it took me only a matter of seconds to say yes so it is nearly here now and only a couple of months away.
“I’m over the moon we’ve got the fight on. Fair play to Daniel, I didn’t think he would have accepted it, but he is obviously as keen as I am to fight.
“There should be plenty of excitement and I’m sure the fans will love it.
“I can’t see it going 12 rounds and the plan is to go in there and stop him. The winner will proceed onto world honours, I’d imagine. The British title propels you on to the world stage.
“It is good for the fans to see the best prospects like me and Daniel fight each other. You can overcook a fight and I think we have now got it at the right time, I really do.
“Neither of us had to take this fight, but why not? I believe it is the right time.”
We are sure all of the Mobiling fraternity will join us in wishing Nathan the absolute best.
