By Ryan Burton

BoxingScene spoke to Thomas Dulorme (11-0) who faces former champion DeMarcus "Chop Chop" Corley (37-17) on June 10th in what will be his toughest test to date. The clash will be televised on ESPN's Friday Night Fights series. The fight takes place two days before the Puerto Rican Day Parade in New York. The fighter of Puerto Rican descent talks about the keys to the Corely fight, his future plans and more in this exclusive interview.

BoxingScene: First off how do you feel about fighting on ESPN next Friday?

Thomas Dulorme: I have been training hard. I am excited about it. I just did 11 rounds of sparring. I sparred with Jesus Pabon who is the WBO Latino junior welterweight champion and a couple other fighters. They gave me really good work.

BoxingScene: How do you feel about fighting on the weekend of the Puerto Rican Day parade?

Thomas Dulorme: I am very happy about it. I feel very humbled to have the opportunity to be part of this fight card before the parade and having the opportunity to fight in front of so many Puerto Ricans that weekend.

BoxingScene: Corley is the most accomplished opponent that you have faced. What do you think is going to be the key to the fight?

Thomas Dulorme: I am not going to give anything to him in this fight. I am going to work behind my jab and move forward. I am going to give him a lot of movement and target the kidney area of his body so that I can wear him down and get a knockout if it comes.

BoxingScene: You have won 10 fights in a row by knockout. How important is it to you to get a knockout?

Thomas Dulorme: It is important to me because I know it is a special thing. The fans like knockouts. People like to see fighters who finish off their opponents. I feel that I have enough tools to win the fight by decision or knockout. I won't be looking for a knockout but if it comes well then great.

BoxingScene: Assuming you get the win like you plan you will improve your record to 12-0. What is your time frame to fight for a world title? Do you want a title shot in a year? 2 years?

Thomas Dulorme: Maybe next year but I leave that to my trainer Jose Bonilla and to my three promoters, Javier Bustillo, Lou DiBella and Gary Shaw. I want to become one of the next great Puerto Rican champions.

BoxingScene: When you were coming up through the amateurs what fighters did you look up to?

Thomas Dulorme: When I was coming up I really looked up to Oscar de la Hoya. He was a great champion. I also looked up to the Gran Campeon Felix "Tito" Trinidad who is a superstar here in Puerto Rico. My favorite champion of all time is Sugar Ray Leonard. He was a very special fighter.

BoxingScene: Do you have a message for the fans?

Thomas Dulorme: I want to thank all the fans for their support. I also want to thank the people at ESPN for giving me this opportunity. I am training really hard because I want to show all the Puerto Rican people what I am made of. I hope all the fans can either come to the fight or watch it on ESPN.
