 Nathan Gorman on Fury v Wilder Result

We caught up with Morson fighter Nathan Gorman to discuss his last fight and what it's like to have Tyson Fury as a sparring partner.

The Hatton-trained Nantwich based heavyweight last fought in October with a points victory over Polish fighter Kamil Sokolowski, his first rounds since fighting on the undercard of Flanagan v Hooker in June. He reflects on what was an unusual fight for him;

"It was good to get 8 rounds under my belt and it was very pleasing for me but I got an injury to my hand in the first round. Obviously my intention was to get the knockout and it took my off guard. Within the first 30 seconds I threw a big right hand and it caught him on top of the head and I felt somethnig swell up in my glove and I thought this hasn't happened to me before. So I had to get back to the corner, adjust to the injury and we got the points victory so we take it from there."

Tyson Fury is among those to train at Hatton's gym in Hyde. A name that has been in news a lot recently with his well-documented struggles with depression and his miraculous comeback fights, Gorman talks about his presence and how it's helped him. 

"He's very inspiring. He came through the door last year at 30 stone and he said he'd fight Deontay Wilder within a year. I thought to lost 10st, 12st within a year is a big ask - that's an average person. And within a year he's had two comeback fights and he's fought Deontay Wilder, probably the most dangerous heavyweight puncher in the world and he should be at home now with a WBC belt. But it's one of those things, I'm sure he'll get the rematch. When he's in the gym after sparring he'll give me little pointers with what I should do and shouldn't do. Who's better as a sparring partner than the former unified world champion? It's great."

The peak of Fury's comeback was the controversial draw with Deontay Wilder in November and Gorman also gave his feedback on how he thought the result should have been.

"I thought it was a robbery definitely. Without being biased, I'd give Tyson eight rounds and Wilder four. One judge had it two to three rounds in favour of Wilder which is ridiculous because in my opinion Wilder didn't touch him in those rounds."

We'll be catching up with Nathan Gorman after his fight and we wish him all the best.
