Heavyweight Nathan Gorman (19-2) will return from a year off when he faces Ukrainian Bohdan Myronets (7-1) on December 1st, live and free-to-air on Channel 5. Gorman returns to the ring for the first time since last year’s three-round loss to Fabio Wardley for the British championship. The spot for Gorman-Myronets opened up after a training injury to Lee McGregor forced his clash with Isaac Lowe to be rearranged. The showdown between McGregor and Lowe will be rescheduled for early in 2024. But the Wasserman Boxing show in Bolton, England goes on – with Gorman-Byronets as the chief support. headliner. The European flyweight title fight between Chloe Watson and Justine Lallemand headlines, with Roman Fury, fresh from a stoppage win in Brighton last week, also set for action at the Toughsheet Community Stadium on Friday, December 1st.
Myronets stunned Kash Ali in Edinburgh in the summer and now he wants to add Gorman to his list of UK scalps.
Kalle Sauerland, Global Head of Boxing at Wasserman Boxing, said: “We’re so disappointed for Lee because he was looking in great shape ahead of this cracker of a fight with Lowe. But the contest will still go ahead, early in the New Year, when Lee is fit and firing again, and it will be worth the wait I can guarantee you that. In its place for our December 1st show in Bolton, live on Channel 5, comes the return of Nathan Gorman, who goes into a tough, tough fight with Bohdan Myronets. This a heavy-duty, big-punching match-up that will not be for the faint-hearted, so make sure you tune-in. And it supports a brilliant showdown for the European flyweight title as the future of women’s boxing, Chloe Watson, takes on Justine Lallemand. We’ve also got Roman Fury, Dan Toward, Codie Smith and many more on a bumper show in Bolton!”
Also on the show, James Moorcroft meets Matthew Rennie in a fight that is guaranteed to deliver. The undercard is also packed with the likes of Adbul Khan, the cousin of British boxing great Amir, Nelson Birchall, Ted Jackson and Immad Naseeb.
