Big plans are in the works for undefeated welterweight prospect Thomas Dulorme (15-0), who faces Yoryi Estrella (10-7) this Saturday in his hometown of Carolina, Puerto Rico. Estrella is a late replacement for Ivan Hernandez who was scratched from the fight because of visa issues.
BoxingScene .com recently reported that Dulorme will make his HBO debut on October 27th and that one of the names mentioned as a possible opponent is Luis Carlos Abregu (32-1, 26KOs) of Argentina. Our sources have now confirmed that the Dulorme-Abregu fight is nearly finalized. Dulorme of course must defeat Estrella and come out of the fight unscathed for the fight to materialize. Abregu's only career loss came against Tim Bradley in July, 2010.
Undefeated Colombian prospect Darley Perez is also likely to appear in the televised co-feature slot against an opponent to be determined. The venue for the fight has not yet been finalized.
