Andy Ruiz Backs Nathan Gorman in Daniel Dubois Showdown

ANDY RUIZ JR is backing Nathan Gorman to join him on his throne as boxing’s upset King.

Big Andy caused an all-time shocker earlier this month when he hammered Anthony Joshua to defeat and became IBF, WBA, IBO and WBO heavyweight champion.

Gorman (16-0, 11KOs) has been inspired by the achievements of the Mexican who like him isn’t a body beautiful.

What Ruiz Jr achieved at Madison Square Garden will be in Gorman’s mind when he attempts to upset the odds by defeating Daniel Dubois (11-0, 10KOs) in their vacant British heavyweight title clash at London’s o2 on Saturday July 13.

Ruiz Jr has gone out of his way to contact Gorman ahead of the fight even though he is emerging as a rival.

He told him via his official Twitter account: “Good luck mate! You got what it takes.”

Ruiz Jr clearly appreciates the support given by Gorman who said he was capable of springing a surprise against Joshua.

Gorman knows how crucial the Dubois fight is, but admits he will be in no immediate hurry to jump straight into a fight against Ruiz Jr and the division’s elite.

“My main concentration is Daniel, but in the next 12 to 18 months I can get there,” says Gorman who admits it is hard not to think of becoming world champion.

“Being a British heavyweight champion these days you are virtually on that world door, aren’t you?”

Gorman been my pick the whole time too.

Gorman is more skilled than Dubois, who's possibly more powerful, but slower and static. Ruiz is probably still better than Gorman, faster and much more experienced.
