Thomas Dulorme Eyes Mauricio Herrera Showdown

By Ryan Burton caught up with junior welterweight contender Thomas Dulorme (21-1, 14KOs) shortly after Mauricio Herrera (21-4, 7KOs) captured the WBA junior welterweight interim title in Las Vegas on the Canelo Alvarez-Erislandy Lara pay-per-view undercard.

While most of the world was focused on the main event, Dulorme revealed that he was most interested in Herrera's title winning performance against Johan Perez. 

"I came to Las Vegas to see that fight more than the Canelo and Lara fight. I wanted to see about a possible future fight with Herrera. I think that it would be a great fight, Mexico versus Puerto Rico," said the Carolina, Puerto Rico resident.

Dulorme is currently in California training at Robert Garcia's RGBA gym. He said that the current plan is for him to take a stay busy fight in August and then he hopes to land a bigger fight.

"I am in Oxnard and I have already started training. I might be back fighting on August 30th in Puerto Rico. That isn't set in stone but it's the plan for now," Dulorme told

Herrera would outbox that dude..dulorme does not possess the skill set to deal with that jab and movement, experience that Herrera brings to the fight.. This will be a 116-112 or 117-111 type fight... Herrera will bewilder this kid
