HEAVY WEIGHT SILVER

Nathan GORMAN (14-0, 11)  retained his WBC International Heavyweight  Silver title last Saturday  December 22nd in Manchester (UK).

The 22-year-old was in action at Manchester Arena on Saturday night.   Gorman, a relation of Tyson Fury, outpointed ex-WBO heavyweight title challenger Razvan Cojanu to retain his WBC International Silver heavyweight title.   More to come.   

 

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.

Nathan Gorman stopped in five rounds Mohammed Soltby to win the vacant WBC International Heavyweight Silver crown.     Gorman, trained by Ricky Hatton, is just 21 and produced a mature display at the Metro Radio Arena in Newcastle  exclusively live on BT Sport and BoxNation.   The end came at 2:50 of round five after a barrage of shots from Gorman  forced  McDonnell to step in to save Soltby.   Nice to notice that the thw two chief seconds were Artur Grigorian (Soltby) and Ricky Hatton (Gorman).   More to come.
