NATHAN BENNETT had a glimpse of life at the top when he mixed with Dalton Smith at Matchroom Fight Camp in August 2020.
It didn’t go to plan for Nathan as he was knocked out in five rounds.
However, Bennett showed remarkable toughness that wowed fans watching on Sky.
Smith is a blue chip prospect and Nathan lost nothing in defeat even though a broken jaw sustained in the first round meant a lay-off.
He was due to meet Kane Gardner in September 2021 for the vacant Central Area title, but the fight was scrapped after Nathan tested positive for COVID-19.
There were both among the four VIP entries in the Boxxer Super-Lightweight competition in November 2021, and ironically were drawn against each other.
And, what a three round war they produced with Gardner taking the decision and fans desperate to see them again over ten rounds.
Their manager, Steve Wood is eager to make that fight in early 2022 and hopes a professional title will be up for grabs.
Nathan has been a professional since November 2017 and has stoppage wins over Gary McGuire and Stu Greener on his record.
He is dedicated totally to boxing and lives with partner Jodie and their two children, Callie and Annie.
