latest news: Nathan Gorman is scheduled to fight next March 23 in Leicester (UK) against Kevin Johnson. Nathan’s WBC International Silver title will NOT be at stake.
The champion had retained his WBC International Heavyweight Silver title last December 22nd 2018 in Manchester (UK). Gorman, a relation of Tyson Fury, outpointed ex-WBO heavyweight title challenger Razvan Cojanu.
Latest news: Appointed challenger Alex Leapai apparently pulled out of the fight and the Committee approved Roumania’s Razvan Cojanu as a challenger for defending champion Nathan Gorman. Cojanu was actually ready to face big prospect Daniel Dubois who was eventually forced to withdraw from that bout due to an injury suffered while training. Therefore, Cojanu, a former world title challenger, will make his way to Manchester to fight Gorman for the title.
