Gorman 2019

Currently 15-0 at just 23 years old, Morson’s Nathan Gorman has quickly become one of the fastest rising heavyweight stars in the world. Last year was a breakout year for Gorman, who fought an impressive four times with three of them being broadcast on BT Sport under the legendary Frank Warren banner.

The highlight of these fights was clearly his hard-fought win ozver seasoned veteran, Razvan Cojanu on the undercard of Josh Warrington vs Carl Frampton back in December, which turned out to be one of the most memorable events in the sport of last year.

Cojanu presented a step up for Nathan in terms of the quality of opponent in front of him and in the number of rounds that he was scheduled to compete in, but the Hatton’s gym fighter showed both weren’t a problem for him with a 12-round decision win:

“It was the first time I went 12 rounds, he was a credible opponent; he’s fought high class opposition and fought for World Titles. Previously before I fought him, he fought Joseph Parker and Luis Ortiz so the only losses he had were at world level. It was good to prove my fitness was alright with a twelve rounder”


After finishing an incredibly active year on a high, Nathan had a well-deserved rest over the festive period, which will be key heading into his most important year in the sport yet:

“It was nice to chill out with my family and have two or three weeks off. It was good to do nothing over Christmas, you’ve got to rest the body as well as the mind”


The greatness of some athletes comes from their all-encompassing love for the sport they participate in, which they have no choice to switch off from, whilst this obsessive nature may be the downfall of others. For Nathan, he believes that turning his mind away from boxing during his downtime enables a refreshed version of himself each time he steps into the ring:

“Whenever I finished anything fight related, I go back home and I switch off completely. I don’t watch anything to do with boxing, I just rest my mind and rest my body and when I come back in the gym it’s game on.”


Alongside Nathan at the Hyde based gym is another talented youngster from his famous fighting family, cousin Tommy Fury. Tommy made his professional debut on the December 22nd card and is scheduled to compete on the same bill as his gym partner on the 23rd of February. Tommy enters the professional game with massive expectations due to the success of older brother, Tyson but Gorman was full of praise for the youngster:

 “He’s doing really well, he’s in the gym every day and listens to the coaches. The guy that he just fought had over 100 fights, they’re there to survive. Bearing in mind Tommy’s only had 12 amateur fights, he’s progressing really well”


Speaking about his own fight Nathan informed us what he knows about his next bout so far:

“It’s a defence of my WBC title, so it’s a 10 rounder. In terms of opponents, we’ve got a few names in mind but we’re just waiting now to pin them”


Whenever an athlete reaches a certain level of success and popularity, there comes an element of inevitable unwarranted negativity from certain members of the online community and this was no surprise to Gorman:

“You’re always going to get online trolls, it comes with the territory. It goes in one in ear and out the other, you’ve just got to take it in your stride because if you let it get to you it’ll ruin your day. I like to call them keyboard warriors, obviously we’re all entitled to our opinion but I just look over and delete the tweet. I just don’t even listen to it”

He continued:

“I knew it was going to happen, the more established you get the more hate you’ll get. They’re not all haters though, there are people that genuinely want to see you do way”


With Nathan looking to continue the momentum he has built in the past year, he gave us an insight into the goals he’s looking to accomplish in the sport this year:

“This year to keep to keep on winning is the main thing but I’d like to break into the top 5 in all the governing bodies as well and hopefully win some more titles”

Nathan Gorman returns to ring on Saturday 23rd of February live on BT Sport and we wish him all the best here at Morson.
