    You will see my rating for the Saunders fight, it ain't gonna be pretty.

    But still Saunders against a bum for a world title is different to Jordan Gill against a bum.

    Alongside Hughie Fury, Nathan Gorman is @CutThroatFade favourite fighter/prospect.

    I must know his prediction for this one.

    Think it’s Liam Williams v Martin Murray on the undercard

    Said immediately after his last fight but since said he’s goin to continue but just fight for fun/money rather than chase a world title and said he’s out in July. Frank warren said Liam Williams is in a great fight on 13th July undercard so can see that being the match up

    Already seen it - first thing I do when wake up every morning is to check if S-Jam Boxing has dropped a new release.

    But yeah you're right his fade is looking extra fresh and crispy in that one.

    In the words of Warren...Do me a favour.
    Murray is useless at this point and boring as hell- I would rather see one of Warrens solid prospects higher up the card than watch Murray shell up for 12 rounds. I do like this middleweight version of Williams though- just wish he was in a better fight.

    I’ve got no problem with it really. Good experienced fighter and only his second? At middleweight. He is in the top 10 with the WBO though so should be looking to climb those rankings, I don’t see what this fight does for him in that sense.

    Williams was calling out Eubank Junior yesterday. He’s desperate to fight a decent name. Would be very excited about a fight with Murray. If he could notch a win there then that would be an impressive scalp.

    I don't know why but I just like Gorman. He may not win against Dubois but he just seems like a level headed kid with good skills and decent (not great) power. Gorman seems pretty confident to me and as neither Gorman or Dubios has proven anything yet, I make this a 50/50 fight.

    He did an interview after the presser where he seemed really confident in predicting a ko against Daniel. He said him and Ricky had been working on things recently, the way he came across it was as tho they'd been working on punching Power.

    I seen that, too. I think there’s this opinion where if a heavyweight doesn’t carry that explosive one punch KO power, that they can only win on points. The reality imo is that if they keep landing clean hard shots with variety, that in itself can chip away/exhaust an opponent and force a stoppage. Gorman makes his opponents work hard in that he throws in bunches with variety. I think they’ll try to make Dubois fight at a pace a few notches up from what he’s used to so I expect Gorman to work in the pocket a lot whilst this fight lasts...which carries the huge risk of him catching one himself.

    I think Gorman can stop him late on. Either way, I think the loser will go on to a great career anyway.

    I know that rationally Dubois is the better looking, harder hitting, more hyped prospect BUT I just like Gorman. I never take what boxers say too seriously as they have to have an almost irrational sense of self belief in order to perform consistently, however, Gorman's quiet air of confidence makes me feel that this is not the foregone decision many seem to think.

    Couldn’t agree more. I wish a few more younger fighters had the balls to step up instead of padding records.
