Dulorme Seeks New HBO Foe as Gomez Falls Through

By Steve Kim has been told by several sources that junior welterweight Thomas Dulorme (21-1, 14KOs) will be the focus of the HBO tripleheader on December 6th from the Barclays Center in Brooklyn that is being presented by Golden Boy Promotions. The main event that night will feature the middleweight match-up between Gabe Rosado and David Lemieux along with a junior middleweight co-feature between Hugo Centeno and James De La Rosa.

The hope was that Dulorme would face Frankie Gomez (18-0, 13KOs), but logistical problems have nixed Gomez, who is trained by Freddie Roach. Currently, the renowned trainer is in the Philippines with Manny Pacquiao and is also working with Lucian Bute, who just happens to have a fight scheduled for December 6th in Montreal.

There was some talk of matching Dulorme - who's coming off a late March victory over Karim Mayfield - with Antonio Orozco, but an agreement could not be reached for that match-up.

An official announcement on Dulorme's official replacement opponent is forthcoming.

Dulorme can fight but he might have lucked out that this fight fell through. Gomez is problems for him.

Just when you thought Gomez was ready to break out, back to the same old nonsense. To bad, he's the most talented of the young fighters IMO.

Provonikov should cancel the castillo fight and face dulorme.

They should try to do Gomez vs Orozco and then the winner going against the winner of Ali vs Abregu.
