12/01/2023 - No comments

Friday at 10pm, live and free-to-air on Channel 5, Gorman takes on Myronets in heavyweight return

Nathan Gorman is diving headfirst back into the big leagues, squaring up against Ukraine’s Bohdan Myronets on December 1. This clash is free-to-air on Channel 5, so no excuses for missing out.

Gorman’s stepping back into the ring for the first time since his explosive three-round tussle with Fabio Wardley for the British title. Thanks to a training mishap that sidelined Lee McGregor, Gorman’s getting his gloves laced up again, while McGregor’s showdown with Isaac Lowe gets a rain check for the New Year.

Roman Fury, fresh off his savage stoppage win in Brighton, is also throwing down at the Toughsheet Community Stadium on December 1. But let’s not forget the main event: Chloe Watson and Justine Lallemand fighting for the European flyweight title. This pre-Christmas bash is headlined by a ferocious fight, with Gorman and Myronets’ heavyweight clash also getting the spotlight on Channel 5.

Myronets, the man who shook up Kash Ali in Edinburgh, is aiming to notch another UK name on his belt – Nathan Gorman.

Kalle Sauerland, the big boss of boxing at Wasserman, is gutted about McGregor’s pullout but promises that the McGregor-Lowe fight, once rescheduled, will be a barnburner. For now, we’ve got Gorman stepping up for a gritty battle with Myronets on December 1 – a match-up that’s not for the weak-kneed, so brace yourselves.

This event isn’t just about the heavyweights; it’s a showcase for the future of women’s boxing with Chloe Watson versus Justine Lallemand. And there’s more – Roman Fury, Dan Toward’s pro debut, the electrifying Codie Smith, and a James Moorcroft vs. Matthew Rennie fight that’s sure to deliver the goods.

This card’s stacked with talent, including Adbul Khan (Amir Khan’s cousin, if you didn’t know), Nelson Birchall, Ted Jackson, and Immad Naseeb. For fans seeking refunds, hit up your ticket vendor.
