After a devastating defeat it can be a tricky task for a fighter to regain lost confidence.  Promoters and managers have to help a fighter by selecting the right match ups at the right time.  After Thomas Dulorme’s convincing win against previously unbeaten Karim Mayfield, the Puerto Rican now looks to be on the same course he was heading to before his loss to Luis Carlos Abregú in October 2012.

He also now holds a lofty position at number four in the latest WBC rankings at junior welterweight as well as a number two ranking with the WBA.

BoxingScene was able to speak to Dulorme (21-1, 14 KOs) last week who confirmed he has already returned to training.

“My trainers helped me a great deal against Mayfield.  Robert García came up with a good plan for me and prepared me on the technical side.  Alex Ariza helped me a lot for that fight, he’s worked with a lot of great boxers and I’m just starting out, trying to be great in this sport.  He helped me and told me I’ll be a champion. 

“Mayfield made life uncomfortable for me.  He didn’t let me look as good as I could have.  His style and manner of throwing punches doesn’t let you have an entertaining fight with him, so we couldn’t give the public a good show.”

Alex Ariza has a reputation for working his boxers to their limits.  Dulorme discussed how he found working with the strength and conditioning coach.

“Alex demands a lot from his fighters,” Thomas explained.

“The first week with him was difficult because I had to get used to new things, things I hadn’t done before.  But by the second week I was doing better and he liked what I was doing.  He likes his boxers to do things perfectly.”

Dulorme was stopped in the seventh round against Argentina’s hard-hitting Abregú, who himself is close to a title shot at 147lbs, given his number one ranking with the WBC.  Would Dulorme entertain a rematch despite both men competing in different divisions now?

“If the fight happens, then yes, but if you notice Abregú hasn’t grown like I have.  I don’t know why.  If we have a rematch in the future then I’d like that because I know I’m better than him and I simply had a bad night.  I proved that because I just won a difficult fight.   But right now I’m focused on being champion at 140lbs. 

“Maybe I could fight Ruslan Provodnikov.  I’ll carry on training and being focused; win a title and then move up to 147lbs.  Actually we were going to fight Provodnikov this time but his team didn’t want it.  I guess they were looking for an easier fight for the first defence of his title.” 

Dulorme assured that he never lost faith in his abilities despite such a tough defeat at a key period in his development.

“The confidence was always there, I just repeat I had a bad night, it was a hard defeat for me.  For a week I felt a bit depressed afterwards.  My corner decided to stop that fight when I wanted to continue.  They stopped it a bit early, but it was something that happened.

“I’ll be returning in the summer, around June or July, I’ll keep on going, gain more experience and when the world title chance comes around I’ll be ready.

“I should have a chance with the WBC or the WBA, and maybe against Provodnikov in the future.”
