Next one against Jason welborn for the British title? That's a big step up again, welborn is no mug that's for sure. Good luck to him

Close rounds but Nathan was given it by 2 rounds. Not biased or anything but it was deserved.

Toe to toe stuff at times.

Just popped round with his belt, spoke with him for a while and hes a little mad with himself for taking the shots that he did because he got away at times from his boxing skills. His trainer told him to start boxing again and that’s what he then did.

He knew that after his original opponent Ryan Aston had pulled out that Tom Stokes was always going to be a tougher opponent and so it proved.

In the latter rounds of the fight his extra fitness told, mind you though must help that he teaches nutrition etc etc at college.

Hoping to get a tv slot with a shot at the British title in October against ‘did say his name but it escapes me’. Says the lad in question is a real tough nut and he knows it’ll be a tough one and will need to be on his game. Says he’s fought him before and feels he’s capable of beating him.

No doubt no easy contests from here on in.

He can now properly grieve after losing his dad suddenly the day before he was informed he’ll be fighting for the midlands title. Threw himself into preparation for that fight and I think he can now only improve after he’s gone through the grieving process.

Unsure if it was yourself who said that Tom Stokes was a tough lad and if it was then so it proved.

Edit - No doubt it be on YouTube soon.

Just a shameless plug for on the box a boxing show which Nathan’s best mate Dan Hewitt hosts in which he’s built up a decent show and who’ll be ringside commentating on world title fight in a couple of weeks.

Luke Caci was also on the bill last night too a stablemate of Nathan’s ‘different weight division’ whose got a promising future ahead of him.

Edit - not fought him as such but sparred with him.

Convincing win or a close one out of interest? The last video I saw of him he looked levels above the other lad

Interesting Gerry, TBH when he came on the scene I wasn’t so sure, respect to the man, probably the best in the world at the moment, great skills, great boxer. More importantly to come back from where he had been and do what he did with Wilder, was, and will always be for me, pretty amazing

Would like to see KG and JW do it again

He took the fight cause it was easy money and he is regaining his fitness, just as joshua did but came unstuck , ive sparred with fury on many occasions over the years he looks awkward and cumbersome , he can move for a bloke his size if he gets fully fit there is not one heavyweight about at the moment that will beat him.

I have always rated Fury from day one when I saw he was a thinking boxer that could switch seamlessly from one hand to the other he has a natural thinkimg boxers brain
ok so his opponent was not up to much but Furys speed and timing was bang on

watched the Warrington fight again and I think it should of been a draw

I though KG would beat him before the fight, far superior boxing skills imho. Should have been a draw and a rematch

Fury superb, get another win under the belt, Wilder soon or the other 3 belt holder I hope

As you would expect him to against an opponent ranked 59 in the world. Still don't understand why he took that fight tbh

Agree on Gallahad, one judge had Warrington 4 rounds ahead

Not top competition for Fury obviously but despatched him quickly and in style exactly how he should have done, been a while since i have seen a fighters face bashed up so badly so quickly.
