Thomas Dulorme Planning Impressive Showcase on 8/31

By Ryan Burton

Blue chip welterweight prospect Thomas Dulorme (15-0) is currently in the final stages of his training camp for his August 31st fight against Ivan Hernandez (29-3).  The fight takes place in Dulorme's hometown of Carolina, Puerto Rico.  Dulorme said that he is training hard for the Columbian fighter and that he will be in the best shape of his career on the 31st.

"My training is going well. I am working really hard on my conditioning with my coach Jorge Muniz.  I am working harder than ever.  I know that Hernandez is a good fighter and I have to be ready for him," Dulorme stated.

Dulorme has knocked out 12 of his 15 opponents and will look to leave a lasting impression on his hometown fans.  He won't press for a knockout however, as his opponent has 23 knockouts among his 29 victories proving that he has power as well.  Dulorme also knows that a victory over Hernandez will seal his October 27th HBO debut and admits that there is added pressure on him to perform well.

"I will adjust to however the fight develops.  I want to knock him out but I won't go looking for it.  If the opportunity comes I will go for it but if I need to box then I will outbox him.

"There will be added pressure but that is why I train so hard.  I train six days a week, three times a day.  I can take the pressure away with the added training.  I train so hard so that I don't leave anything to chance," Dulorme told Boxingscene.com.

The 22 year-old fighter refuses to look past Hernandez as he knows that an upset loss will derail his October plans.  Dulorme says that he is 100% focused on Hernandez and that after he takes care of business against the Colombian he will be ready to talk about October 27th and his HBO debut.

"I hear that the October 27th fight is a done deal but I can't look that far ahead.  I have an opponent ahead of me named Ivan Hernandez that I must take care of first on August 31st.  As soon as September 1st rolls around then I can look ahead and talk about the HBO date," Dulorme concluded.
