Undefeated Heavyweight prospects Nathan Gorman and Daniel Dubois could be on a collision course to be potential opponents within the next couple of years.
Gorman is trained by British boxing legend Ricky Hatton and has amassed a 9-0 record, with seven knockouts, since his debut in December 2015. The 21-year-old is now stablemates with Dubois after signing with Frank Warren.
Speaking to BoxNation, Gorman revealed: “Daniel and me have already sparred numerous rounds when we were in Sheffield,” referring to the English Institute of Sport, the home of GB Boxing.
“He’s a decent long fighter, does the basics well. All men over 15 ½ stone carry knockout power and he’s certainly no different but I’ve never been off my feet in my life. We’re both unbeaten prospects so, if that remains the case, it’s bound to happen down the line.”
‘Dynamite’ Dubois has recorded four straight knockouts and is yet to be taken into the third round. The Greenwich giant won his first belt on July 8th, picking up the WBC World Youth Title.
In an age where some boxers are obsessed with keeping their ‘0’ meaning they can sometimes avoid the toughest challenges, Gorman believes he would be happy to face Dubois when the time is right.
“I’ll certainly not be shying from it,” he argued. “It’s not about looking after an unbeaten record. Sometimes you have to roll the dice. Of all the rising British Heavyweight prospects, I honestly see myself as the one coming through.”
