Gorman draws inspiration from Ruiz ahead of Dubois showdown

Dubois vs Gorman

British Heavyweight prospect, Nathan Gorman, has taken inspiration from the newly crowned world heavyweight champion, Andy Ruiz Jr.

Gorman acknowledges that while he doesn’t have a stereotypical athletic build, he, like Ruiz, will shock his opponent come June 13 and lift the vacant British heavyweight crown.

“Turns out chiselled muscles aren’t everything,” said Gorman. “He knows at the bottom of his heart that I am no easy fight, that is guaranteed.

“It’s a lot of nonsense to call me “slobby”. My slobby style is going to beat him.

“And when the referee raises my hand I will say to Daniel, ‘You lost to a slob.’

“I take it with a pinch of salt when people mention my body definition.

“If it were bodybuilding competition, Daniel would be Mr Olympia, but it is a fight, and if there is one thing I can do well, it is fight.

“You don’t have to be body beautiful to win a world title. Andy Ruiz Jr proved that.”
