The general pre-fight consensus was that Gorman was the technically superior but, in the second, it was 'Dynamite' who managed to establish his jab, ramming it between the guard, looking to set up those dangerous hooks, each haymaker met with oohs and aahs from the crowd
The Londoner again raced out and got behind his measured jab, this time targeting the midriff area as his counterpart soaked up the pressure on the ropes, Gorman unable to play the matador role as the rampaging bull refused to show mercy. The one-way traffic continued into the fifth and the somewhat inevitable finish came then, a thunderous combination flattening the Nantwich man, the right detonator scrambling the senses as he failed to beat the count.
