Dulorme, Redkach, Ota on Next Broadway Boxing

New York, NY - On Thursday, February 21,Broadway Boxing returns to Roseland Ballroom in NYC featuring WBC #10 rated junior welterweight Thomas Dulorme (16-1, 12KO's) in an eight-round bout.  Dulorme is looking to bounce back from his lone blemish as a professional to fellow top-rated contender Carlos Abregu (34-1, 28KO's) on HBO last October.

Also scheduled to appear on the card in separate eight-round bouts will be red-hot lightweight prospect Ivan Redkach (13-0, 11KO's) and WBA #11 rated welterweight Charlie Ota (21-1-1, 15KO's).  Additional bouts on the card will be announced shortly.

The 10-bout card is promoted by DiBella Entertainment (DBE) and sponsored by Manfredi Auto Group, Newlio.com, and Everlast.  SNY will broadcast the event tape-delayed.  Tickets are currently on sale and can be purchased through Ticketmaster by calling (800) 745-3000.  Tickets are priced at $125, $85, $65 and $45. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. ET with the first bout scheduled for 7 p.m. ET.

"Thomas suffered a tough loss but had a great learning experience in his fight with the hard-hitting Abregu," said co-promoter Lou DiBella. "His fight on February 21 will be at a reduced weight as Thomas is moving down into the 140lb. division.  DBE Both DBE, GSP (Gary Shaw) and Javier Bustillo all still expect for Thomas to become a world champion."

The 23-year-old Dulorme was on the fast tract to stardom, having turned pro in August 2008 and running his record to a perfect 16-0, 12KO's, by August 2012. During this time, Dulorme garnered rave reviews throughout the boxing world for his lightning-quick hands and devastating knockout power.

The amateur standout Dulorme, a part of Team Puerto Rico, which is a group of fighters promoted by the trio of DiBella Entertainment, Gary Shaw Productions and Universal Promotions, was featured on both ESPN and SHOWTIME networks during his climb to the number one ranking in the WBA welterweight world ratings. In what was supposed to be his breakout performance on HBO, Dulorme was stopped by the WBC #1-rated Abregu when Dulorme's corner threw in the towel in round seven.  Dulorme was very competitive in the fight at the time of the stoppage, trailing on all three judge's scorecards by just one point. Abregu's lone loss as a professional came against current WBO undefeated welterweight champion Timothy Bradley.

After the bout, Dulorme and his team decided to go back to the drawing board and are now campaigning at the junior welterweight limit. The bout on February 21 will be contested at a catch weight of 143 pounds. Dulorme feels that he will fit in much better in the lower weight class and is looking to prove that he is still one of the most promising young prospects in the sport.

"I feel great for my upcoming fight on February 21 and am exciting about fighting in the junior welterweight division. I feel much stronger and faster at this weight and I cannot wait to return to action in my favorite state of New York," said Dulorme.

Dulorme continued, "We learned a lot from the Abregu loss.  After that fight, I didn't get down on myself or discouraged, we just went back to the drawing board and began working on and learning new things.  I plan on staying in my new division for the time being, but I would love another crack at Abregu down the line, as I know that next time would be very different."

The 10-bout card is promoted by DiBella Entertainment (DBE) and sponsored by Manfredi Auto Group, Newlio.com, and Everlast.  SNY will broadcast the event tape-delayed.  Tickets are currently on sale and can be purchased through Ticketmaster by calling (800) 745-3000.  Tickets are priced at $125, $85, $65 and $45.
