Dulorme Not Worried About Abregu's Power, Pressure

By Jhonny Gonzalez

Welterweight contender Thomas Dulorme (16-0, 12KOs) is expecting a very tough fight with veteran Juan Carlos Abregu (33-1, 27KOs). The only defeated on Abregu's record was to WBO welerweight champion Timothy Bradley. The October 27th bout will be televised by HBO. It will be the first twelve round fight for Dulorme.

The unbeaten prospect is not convinced that Abregu is a hard puncher than Yoryi Estrella, who Dulorme decisioned over ten rounds in August.

"I'm at the gym three times a day. We know that we are in a tough fight. Abregu is a good fighter and strong. But I don't think he can hit as hard as Estrella. He is not as strong as Yoryi, but he has more mobility," Dulorme told Raul Alzaga. "He is not as aggressive as, say, a Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. He does not apply that much pressure. I would compare him with Marcos Maidana, but more leisurely."
