Nathan Gorman Beats Tomas Salek in Hopes of Regaining Traction After Dubois Loss

In boxing, the rise to the top and the fall to the bottom is as common as apple pie. Often fighters have seen their popularity and momentum plummet after a devastating loss. Heavyweight Nathan Gorman (18-1, 12KO), after defeating Tomas Salek (17-3, 13KO), is hoping to get back on track following his first career loss to WBA Regular champion Daniel Dubois.


Gorman was making noise on the domestic level going through the ranks. In 2017, he made a statement with a knockout stoppage over undefeated Mohamed Soltby. The wins scored him the vacant WBC International Silver title. He would continue to climb up on the domestic scene and was given his dream shot against Dubois in 2019.

Both men shared history from their amateur days, and they were considered the two top prospects at that time. It was a highly talked about match-up and a bona fide grudge match for the British title that captured the boxing community’s attention.

Their highly anticipated match-up ended with Dubois easily winning the fight within five rounds. Dubois has since moved on to bigger things, while Gorman’s stock dropped drastically.


Gorman started quick out the gate in round one. He blasted through Salek with two punishing knockdowns before the fight was finally stopped. This was a meaningful victory as he walked away with the IBF International title, which could see him placed inside ranking.

He has been on the comeback trail, albeit against less than stellar opposition. Yet, winning fights in this fashion can get some buzz going, and walking away with the IBF minor title helps boost his profile.

Gorman still has a lot of work to do. The road back is tough, but he seems focused on regaining everything that was lost in the Dubois fight.
