Undefeated heavyweight Nathan Gorman says his fight against Dominic Akinlade will be his “biggest test”.
Nantwich-based boxer Gorman faces Akinlade at the National Sports Centre in Crystal Palace tomorrow night (April 1).
The heavyweights will contest a 10-round eliminator.
Last month, Gorman obliterated Gogita Gorgiladze in the first round at Fenton Manor Sports Complex in Stoke-on-Trent to extend his unbeaten record to 8-0.
“This is definitely the biggest test I’ve had,” said Gorman.
“Dominic is coming off a defeat so I’m expecting him to be in the gym working really hard for this fight,” he told Hatton Boxing.
“He said in the press conference that he’s a wounded lion, he’s hungry and he’s got the spark back.
“I hope he has and I hope he brings it to the table so it’ll be a cracking fight.”
Undefeated Gorman will be in the away corner for the first time in South London.
“The thought of being the away fighter hasn’t really entered my mind; I’m just going down to London to get the job done,” he said.
“I’ve got a bus full of fans going down from Nantwich and hopefully they’ll make some noise and cheer me to victory.
“I’m not one for making predictions, but what I will say is that I’m in with a good opponent in his own backyard and I’m 100 per cent confident that I’ll win.”
Akinlade v Gorman is entitled ‘The Battle for England’ and is promoted by DoveBox Promotions in association with Hatton Promotions.
