PUERTO RICO – Gary Shaw Productions welterweight contender, Puerto Rican star, Thomas Dulorme (21-1, 14 KO), left this morning from Puerto Rico to Oxnard, California, to officially began his training camp under the tutelage of renowned trainer, Robert Garcia.
In his last bout, Dulorme captured the NABF Junior Welterweight title, when defeated former undefeated Californian, Karim Mayfield (18-1-1, 11 KOs), by unanimous decision in a HBO live televised bout on March, 29 2014.
“After beating Mayfield, I rested a little bit, but quickly started running while doing some light training” Dulorme said. “We have several alternatives on the table, and one of those is a possible fight in Puerto Rico in August. I’m taking my career serious that is why I’m heading out to California early. I’m looking forward to reuniting with Robert Garcia in Oxnard to start training.”
“Since moving down from 147 Dulorme has proven he’s a force at 140 lbs.” said promoter Gary Shaw. “That fact that he’s heading out early to Oxnard to train with Robert Garcia tells me he’s on a mission to take over the division. I’m looking to get him in the ring by the end of the summer. His future is bright and the people of Puerto Rico will get to see him in action very soon.”
Currently at 140 pounds, Dulorme is ranked #2 by the World Boxing Association (WBA), #3 by the World Boxing Council (WBC), #4 by the International Boxing Federation (IBF), and #8 in the World Boxing Organization (WBO).
