“I just thought, control him with the jab and work my right hand in and everything will go right.” -Dubois
🇬🇧Daniel Dubois (12-0, 11 KO) successfully blasted his way through rival 🇬🇧Nathan Gorman (16-1, 11 KO) on his way to a 5th round knockout at the O2 Arena in London to win the British Heavyweight Title.
The first round played out pretty even, but after that Gorman had very few moments. In round 2 Gorman was cut near around his left eyebrow with a shot from Dubois right hand, and was put on the canvas in the third after Dubois unleashed a series of blows that had Gorman on shaky legs.
Gorman would get up from the third round knockdown but later in the fifth was put down again and was in worse shape than the first. Gorman rose but wouldn’t beat the count from the Referee, making the knockout official at 2:41 of the fifth round.
“I felt him faded. I could feel his body language.
I’m a strong man and he felt my power.”
