Nathan Gorman (born 25 June 1996) is a British professional boxer. He held the WBC International Silver heavyweight title from 2017 to 2019 and challenged once for the British heavyweight title in 2019.
Gorman was born on 25 June 1996 in Nantwich, Cheshire. He used to playfully spar with his dad as a child and credits his dad with being a big influence on his boxing career, giving his full backing when he chose to take up boxing. Gorman is of Irish Traveller heritage; he is the great-nephew of the undefeated bare-knuckle fighter Bartley Gorman, the 'King of the Gypsies', and the cousin of heavyweight boxers Tyson Fury and Hughie Fury, and light-heavyweight boxer and former Love Island contestant Tommy Fury.
Gorman made his professional debut, under the tutelage of Ricky Hatton and promoted by the Hatton Promotions, on 15 December 2015 against Jindrich Velecky at the Walsall Town Hall, winning via in third round technical knockout (TKO). In his sixth fight on 1 October 2016, he beat David Howe to win the vacant Central Area heavyweight title.
He stopped Mohamed Soltby in five rounds in November 2017 to win the vacant WBC International Silver title. He retained his title with a unanimous decision (UD) victory over former WBO heavyweight title challenger Razvan Cojanu in December 2018. He defeated veteran Kevin Johnson by UD over ten rounds in March 2019. 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.
