It’s the battle heavyweight aficionados have been waiting for as Daniel Dubois and Nathan Gorman go toe-to-toe in London. Betfair ambassador and former world champion David Haye expects a thriller…
“Dubois has the great equaliser, that one punch knockout, and will be dangerous at any stage of the contest”
Fan friendly styles
Both Dubois and Gorman have fan friendly styles, and this will be a shoot-out from the very beginning. It’s a real 50/50 fight and I can see the strengths in arguments for either man winning. Dubois has the superior punch power, Gorman the superior combinations. The fitness levels are even, as are the size and strength and this is one of those fights that doesn’t happen nearly as often as we’d like.
As, we should feel very fortunate to be living in an era where young, undefeated tigers are willing to put it all on the line for our entertainment. I’m struggling to pick a winner here but will consider myself privileged to be sitting front row for this one as it will live up to the hype, and then some.
Gorman’s experience gives him an edge
There’s very little between the two but Gorman has the experience of going 12 rounds in the past and that’s not something his opponent has done yet. That gives him an edge and if this one does go into round 10, 11 or 12 that’s when that added bit of confidence for Nathan will begin to show.
Having said that, the pressure is on Gorman to get into the later rounds. Dubois has the great equaliser, that one punch knockout, and will be dangerous at any stage of the contest. It’s all well and good looking towards the late rounds before working but you’ve got to ensure you are still in the fight by that stage or it counts for nothing.
This won’t go 12 rounds
As I’ve said, this is a 50/50 and it’s difficult to make a prediction but I don’t see this clash going 12 rounds and testing the judges. There will be a stoppage. If it’s for Dubois I’m confident it’ll come in the first half of the fight, before the sixth round. If it’s for Gorman it’s going to be later in the evening, after the sixth round.
The Betfair Sportsbook are offering odds of 1/2 on the fight not going the distance and that covers a win for either man. Dubois betweenis available at 21/10, Gorman getting the job done in rounds 7-12 a cracking 6/1.
