Former world title challenger, Thomas Dulorme ( 22-2, 14 KO’s ) from Carolina, Puerto Rico, will be back in action this Saturday, June 18 at the Pabellón de la Feria, Albacete, Castilla-La Mancha, Spain. Dulorme will be facing Mexican, Jesus “Pantera” Gurrola ( 22-8-3, 10 KO’s ) in a scheduled eight round welterweight division bout.

 

“Right now I’m a free agent. This bout marks my return at the welterweight divison where I first started my career, and was ranked as one of the best in the world. Now you can expect a stronger and faster boxer. At the jr. welterweight division I was ranked in the top positions too, but It was difficult for me to make weight” said Dulorme.

 

“At this stage of my career, I feel very good both mentally and physically to get back to the winning route. Now after this fight, we will be looking for better options,” said the 26 year old world title contender.

 

Dulorme has notable victories over former world champion DeMarcus Corley, the rising prospect, Karim Mayfield, who marched unbeaten in 19 starts and world contender Hank Lundy and Charlie Navarro.  In his last presentation, which was affected by a sudden divorce during his training and differences with his team, Dulorme lost a competitive match against one of the best pound for pound fighters in the world, Terence Crawford in bout ruled for the vacant World Boxing Organization (WBO) world title at the 140-pound division.

I’m eating good, healthy food and we can see the results in comparison to my recent fights. Since campaigning at 140 pounds, I’ve never been so close to making weight as I am now with less than two weeks to go.  I’m feeling incredibly strong and the food I’m eating has made a tremendous difference in a positive way”.
