Heavyweight prospect, Nathan Gorman, predicts a one-sided win for Lineal Heavyweight Champion, Tyson Fury, when he meets WBC Heavyweight Champion, Deontat Wilder, at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on December 1.
Gorman, who faces Alex Lepai on the undercard of Warrington vs Frampton on December 22 at the Manchester Arena, is a distant relative of Fury’s but insists there is no bias in his assessment of the contest.
“I would say truthfully and without bias at all, whatever I thought,” said Gorman. “I have never sparred with Wilder, but from sharing a ring with Tyson I just can’t see Wilder beating him, I really can’t.
“I just think Wilder will get frustrated with Tyson when he can’t hit him, he will load up big swings and Tyson will make him miss and make him pay.
“He is too clever, he has got too much in the arsenal for him and he is a big 6ft 9″ switch-hitter – and he is really, really awkward,” added Gorman, who admitted to being shocked by the stealth of Tyson when he first got in the ring with him.
“Definitely, I’ve also seen him take the p*ss out of world-class sparring partners.”
One thing, Gorman acknowledges, that cannot be legislated for is if Wilder manages to land the lottery punch.
“Obviously, getting onto that, it is 36 minutes and Wilder only needs one punch because he is the most dangerous heavyweight out there, isn’t he? He is more dangerous than Joshua in my opinion and if he hits you, you are going out.
“But, I just can’t see Tyson letting him do that. It is heavyweight boxing though, so you never know.”
