Dulorme: I've Always Said Provodnikov is Not Superman

After Chris Algieri (20-0, 8 KO's) dethroned Ruslan Provodnikov (23-3, 16 KO's) to capture the WBO 140-pound title this past Saturday night on HBO, Gary Shaw Productions Puerto Rican contender, Thomas Dulorme (21-1, 14 KO's), gave a statement on the matter.

"From the beginning, I have always said that Ruslan Provodnikov is not 'Superman'. Many people were selling him as something out of this world, and I really wanted to fight him on this same date, but they did not want it. We knew that the throne of Ruslan would not last long, and one of the reasons is his style. Lots of people said that I was crazy for wanting to fight him, but now I just have to congratulate Chris Algieri for his great performance", said Thomas Dulorme, who currently at 140 pounds 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).

"I want to fight the best fighters available in my division, and Algieri is one of them" said Dulorme, who is trained by renowned trainer, Robert Garcia in Oxnard, California. "A fight with Algieri would be something I would welcome very much."

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.

"Dulorme has always wanted to fight the top fighters in the division," said Gary Shaw. "Algieri proved he's an elite fighter with his recent victory against Provodnikov to capture the WBO title. I believe Algieri vs. Dulorme would be a great fight for the fans.  These are the type of fights the fans want to see."

i'd like to see algieri vs dulorme. algieri doesn't have much power behind his punch so dulorme doesn't need to worry about getting KO'ed.

I don't know why Provodnikov ducked Dulorme and chose Algieri instead. That style would have suited him better since he says he doesn't like to fight slick boxers.
