Ricky Hatton Expects Very Big Things From Nathan Gorman

NATHAN GORMAN will be slimmed down by trainer Ricky Hatton to help him add even more power to his armoury.

Heavyweight hope Gorman (13-0) goes for his fifth consecutive KO win at the Brentwood Centre, this Saturday night.

The 22-year-old might not be built like an Adonis, but he and Frank Warren stablemate Daniel Dubois are both winning plaudits and on a collision course to face each other.


British boxing great Hatton said: “Nathan’s power is developing because he’s maturing and more suited to the type of training we do.

“We have him doing a bit of strength work and we’re trying to slim him down a little bit.

“He is never going to be a body beautiful because some people aren’t built that way. We can’t all be built like Anthony Joshua or Daniel Dubois.

“But he is solid enough, Making him a little bit leaner and explosive will give him advantages. That is the theory behind that.

“He is also improving technically and punching with his whole body now. When he first came he was still a little bit of a rookie and arm punching.

“He is punching nastily and along with his speed and boxing ability which he is known for he is coming into his own.”

The Nantwich boxer has fought twice so far this year, and in June impressively beat good Irishman Sean Turner.

Hatton hopes that promoter Warren will find a spot for his protege on the Josh Warrington v Carl Frampton world title undercard in Manchester on December 22.

“Nathan had his career best win against Sean Turner, but we’re looking to move on from that and impress further,” added former two-weight world champion Hatton.

“He is still only a baby, but in his last fights showed what he is capable of and all about. He hasn’t even scraped the surface for what is to come.

“It looks like we’re having two fights before the end of the year and that will cap a lovely 2018 for us.”

Anthony Yarde will be headlining the Brentwood Centre on October 20th when he faces Argentinian Walter Gabriel Sequeira. World title challenger Gary Corcoran and ‘The Pexican’ Johnny Garton will contest the vacant British welterweight title. Zak Chelli and Umar Sadiq will both be putting their young, undefeated records on the line in a super-middleweight contest. Heavyweight Nathan Gorman will also feature on the show televised live on BT Sport.

[QUOTE=Adamsc151;19200894]If he's at his best he definately can beat Wilder. That's prob the biggest drawing point for this fight TBH - is it the old Tyson, or the version we saw against Seferi and Pianetta?[/QUOTE] I don't think he even…

[QUOTE=Holler;19200915]Based on their last couple of outings I'd say Gorman is significantly ahead of DD in his development. He may not look the part but his boxing skills are very impressive in a big guy.[/QUOTE] Boxing skills is not all…

[QUOTE=lefthooklead;19200565]Yeah, I didn't go to Dusseldorf for a slug fest...hahaha! I see it going exactly how you say. Fury moving, twitching, feinting, jabbing and circling to his right. Wilder constantly offset right arm loaded. If Fury can keep switched on…

[QUOTE=Adamsc151;19198248]Agreed on Hughie, I think the Parker fight might have taught him not to emulate his older cousin too closely. I'm all for boxers having great defensive and evasive skills, but like any sport you can't win unless you attack.…
