Tommy Fury’s prediction on Daniel Dubois versus Nathan Gorman is surprising

Daniel Dubois punching power may have made him bookies’ favourite for Nathan Gorman fight, but not everybody has got the same man winning.

Tommy Fury, the younger brother of former lineal heavyweight champion Tyson Fury, feels Gorman’s speed will be too hot to handle for Dubois.

“There is nothing Daniel Dubois does to throw Nathan off,” the 20-year-old, a 2-0 light heavyweight, was quoted as saying by BoxingScene.

“I am not just saying it, but I believe it will be an easy fight for Nathan.

“If we’re being serious about it, what does Daniel do? He comes forward one-two and throws a couple of hooks.

“Nathan will become a world champion. Have you ever seen a heavyweight with speed like that before?

“Look what he did to Sean Turner. Sean is a good fighter, but Nathan made it look like it was Sean’s first fight.

“It’s all about levels, especially in the heavyweight division. You can’t just rely on power which a lot of heavyweights do.

“Nathan has got the speed, agility and he can move. For my money Nathan is going all the way 100 per cent.

Fury, who often spars with Gorman, however advised his friend to be cautious of Dubois’ wild swings that can put the ‘lights out in seconds’.

“Daniel doesn’t really move his head. He is a basic heavyweight, but he is a big puncher and you have to be cautious,” the 20-year-old said.

“You can’t go in there thinking it’s gonna be easy because he can put your lights out in seconds. He is a big man and if you get hit on the chin by anybody over 15 stone you’re going down.

“So what can a big man like that do? You have to be cautious, but I see Nathan winning easily and convincingly.

Dubois (11-0, 10 KOs) and Gorman (16-0, 11 KOs) are scheduled to trade punches at the O2 Arena on July 13 in what promises to be a blockbuster clash for the BBBofC British belt.
