Ricky Hatton Expects Gorman To Put Daniel Dubois To Sleep

RICKY HATTON believes that Daniel Dubois will be seeing stars when he collides with bitter rival Nathan Gorman.

The pair clash for the vacant British heavyweight title at The O2, London on Saturday July 13 in one of the most significant domestic title fights in recent years.

Dubois (11-0, 10 KOs) has the big punching reputation, while Nantwich’s Gorman (16-0, 11 KOs) is known for his skills.

But Hatton who trains Gorman believes the Londoner will be the on the receiving end of big shots when they clash, live on BT Sport.

British ring legend, Ricky said: “I say it the way it is because it’s what I believe. You will always get honesty from Ricky Hatton.

“I believe I have got the best man and he wins by knockout. If you know Ricky Hatton I don’t do BS.”

Gorman, 22, has been taken the distance by Kamil Sokolowski, Razvan Cojanu and Kevin Johnson which suggests that putting Dubois out for the count is tougher than expected.

Former two-weight world champion Hatton said: “We are looking at six or seven different sparring partners just to do a couple of rounds apiece - one in and one out after every round.

“That will keep them fresh. They will be told to jump all over Nathan and he will be making them miss and pay.

“Nathan needs to hit Daniel with something significant to get respect from him and stop him in his tracks.

“Little arm shot ticklers are not gonna work against Daniel. We have a game plan and think it will work on the night.”

Gorman was bred to fight check out his grandad bartley gorman was known as king of the gypsies. Undefeated in over 100 bare knuckle fights. [url]https://images.app.goo.gl/4xyqexK7AbsgJkg37[/url]

DDD too big and too strong for Gorman, Gorman has skills and variety of punches so he has looked good so far but it's all against smaller weaker guys, the Joyces and DDDs of this world can club their way…

I hope the fight will live up to the hype

There is something about DDD, he's got the potential and I don't think Gorman would beat him to KO. Outpointing DDD would probably be Gorman's only chance.
