Ricky Hatton Heavyweight Protege Shows Off Freakish Speed

Ricky Hatton Heavyweight Protege Shows Off Freakish Speed

UK boxing legend turned trainer and promoter Ricky Hatton’s heavyweight pupil that he’s taken under his wings looks like he is developing at a rapid rate – in more ways than one.

Last time out heavyweight prospect Nathan Gorman extended his undefeated record with a highly impressive stoppage win over teak tough, big hitting Irishman Sean ‘Big Sexy’ Turner.

The manner in which Gorman dealt with Turner made a lot of people in boxing take notice of the Hatton-trained prospect.

Moreover, ‘The Hitman’ has released this video of him working on the pads with Gorman today and when you consider this young man is a heavyweight, the speed he shows here in terms of hand and foot speed is quite something:

Fast hands for a big man there, no doubt.

Gorman is only 22 years of age too and is already 13-0-11KO as a pro.

This weekend he returns to the ring at the Brentwood Centre in the UK.

Certainly a heavyweight prospect to keep an eye on over the next few years along with other young UK heavyweight prospects such as Daniel Dubois.
