Team Morson catches up with Nathan Gorman ahead of Saturday's fight on BT Sport
Hailed by Frank Warren as one of the brightest Heavyweight prospects in Boxing, Team Morson’s Nathan Gorman is preparing for his next fight on the undercard of Jack Catterall vs Ohara Davis, live on BT Sport on October 6th.
The 22-year-old, fighting out of Ricky Hatton’s gym, recently competed on Tyson Fury’s historic return card in Manchester, where he defeated respected Irish heavyweight Sean Turner with an impressive third round finish. This was Gorman’s fourth successive finish and he offered his thoughts on the performance:
“It was very good, I trained very hard for it and it was probably one of my best camps. I was against a very credible opponent on a massive platform, so I was very happy with my performance”
Nathan also discussed whether he has an opponent confirmed for his upcoming bout:
“Not yet no, I’m doing six rounds because I’m fighting again in November so it’s just to get the rust off but obviously I have to take it 100% seriously. It’s just someone I can get the rounds in against”
Even though Gorman has a fight targeted for November which he has described as a ‘big step up’, it’s clear that it isn’t affecting his focus on the task beforehand. The young Nantwich-based fighter has had a wealth of talent helping him in preparation for October 6th and only seems to be improving with the experience:
“I’ve been sparring Tyson regularly, I’ve been going to Peter Fury’s gym sparring Hughie and it’s very good sparring for me. I’m learning all the time, I’m only 22 years of age so there’s plenty of time for me and every time these people are in the gym I learn from them”
Nathan’s future looks bright with a strong team behind him, highlighted by having one of Britain’s greatest ever fighters coaching him in Ricky Hatton. He spoke about what it’s like having ‘The Hitman’ in his corner:
“You can trust him because he’s been from small halls to Las Vegas, he’s been there and done and got every t-shirt. He knows exactly what he’s on about”
Nathan Gorman isn’t the only exciting young heavyweight on Frank Warren’s roster as 21-year-old Daniel Dubois has been capturing the attention of fight fans since last year and Gorman feels they will both meet in colossal encounter down the line:
“He’s been on BT Sport since day one, in the fans eyes I’m the underdog and I’ll play that part. It’s a blessing that we’re both under the same matchmaker because it’s a fight that I want, probably he wants it and when it gets made it’ll be a massive fight”
It’s clear that Nathan Gorman is well on his way to becoming a household name in the boxing world and Morson is excited to see what the future will bring.
