Early life

Amateur career

Gorman won the youth ABA in Manchester and the Three Nations in Scotland before joining the Team GB where he trained and sparred with Daniel Dubois.[3]

Professional career

Gorman made his professional debut, under the tutelage of Ricky Hatton and promoted by the Hatton Promotions,[8] on 15 December 2015 against Jindrich Velecky at the Walsall Town Hall, winning via in third round technical knockout (TKO).[9][10] In his sixth fight on 1 October 2016, he beat David Howe to win the vacant Central Area heavyweight title.[11][12]

In July 2017, it was announced that Gorman has signed a promotional contract with Frank Warren's Queensberry Promotions, with his future fights set to be televised on BoxNation and BT Sport.[13][14]

He stopped Mohamed Soltby in five rounds in November 2017 to win the vacant WBC International Silver title.[15] He retained his title with a unanimous decision (UD) victory over former WBO heavyweight title challenger Razvan Cojanu in December 2018.[16] He defeated veteran Kevin Johnson by UD over ten rounds in March 2019.[17] In July 2019, he fought Daniel Dubois for the vacant British heavyweight title, losing by knockout (KO) in the fifth round, his first loss in 17 fights.[18][19]
