This coming Saturday, Jan. 14, Puerto Rico’s Thomas Dulorme returns to the ring, as he will be facing off with Los Angeles’ Brian Jones in a welterweight attraction set to air on the Badou Jack vs. James DeGale super middleweight unification undercard. The Dulorme-Jones bout will take place from within the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.
The bout marks Dulorme’s debut for Mayweather Promotions and he has spent his camp in Las Vegas, training at the Mayweather Boxing Club. Dulorme is working with well-known strength and conditioning coach Alex Ariza for this particular fight and he appears to be in great physical shape.
Now 23-2 with 15 knockouts and still just 26 years of age, Dulorme is looking for another run in the sport. His two losses were to Argentina’s Luis Carlos Abregu in October of 2012 and to reigning WBO junior welterweight champion Terence Crawford in April of 2015.
His bout with Jones (13-6, 7 KO’s) isn’t expected to be a stiff test, but it should pave the way for another significant fight later in the year.
