heavyweight boxer nathan gorman boxer

Nantwich heavyweight hitter Nathan Gorman will make a step up in class when he returns to the ring next month.

The 20-year-old, the great nephew of legendary bareknuckle boxer Bartley Gorman, headlines Hatton Boxing’s event at the Fenton Manor Sports Complex in Stoke on February 18.

And he’ll face a man with greater experience in the shape of Georgia’s Gogita Gorgiladze.

Gorgiladze has a venomous right hook and has blasted out 28 of 49 professional opponents in a five-year career.

He has contested nine championship bouts, including five world youth title tilts.

Gorman hopes the bout will prepare him for the vacant English title clash with unbeaten Londoner Dominic Akinlade in April.

“I think this fight is exactly what Nathan needs,” said trainer and promoter Ricky Hatton.

“It’s a step up in class before he makes an even bigger step up against Akinlade.

“This Georgian can obviously punch as you don’t knock out 28 opponents without carrying massive power.

“But I think Nathan will be more than ready for whatever is thrown at him.

“Nathan seems to get better and better in the gym with me every day.

“But it’s all about being able to go out there and do it under the lights – and I think this fight will bring out the best in him.

“With an English title just around the corner, Nathan knows he can’t afford to underestimate this guy.

“I expect him to get the business done in style with another knock out.”

The Fenton Manor show is hosted by Hatton Boxing, the company founded by the four-time world champion that also trains thousands of fitness professionals through its Academy.

Fellow undefeated Hatton Boxing prospects Reuben Arrowsmith, Jake Haigh and Sam Evans will all feature on the undercard.
