With WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury in attendance, heavyweight Nathan Gorman (19-1, 13 KOs) needed just 92 seconds to demolish Tomas Salek (17-4, 13 KOs) in the first round of their clash Friday night at the M&S Bank Arena in Liverpool, England. After 15 months out of the ring, Gorman dropped Salek twice to quickly get the win.
“Tomas Salek has only lost to good fighters, but I think I’m the only one to do it in that impressive style,” said Gorman. “I’m really happy and really pleased with it, live on Channel 5 as well so hopefully there were plenty of happy people watching.”
“It’s now about being active. I’m only 25 years old, but I want to keep pushing on and hunting for them titles. There’s a hell of a long career ahead of me yet, and there are big things to come.”
