Karim Mayfield: If I Catch Dulorme, He is Going Down!

NEW JERSEY - Gary Shaw Production's super-lightweight contender and Puerto Rican star, Thomas Dulorme (20-1, 14 KOs), who's ranked WBA # 3, IBF # 5, WBC # 6, and WBO # 14, will battle WBO # 6 and WBC # 11 rated contender,  Karim "Hard Hitta" Mayfield (18-0-1, 11 KOs) battle for the NABF Super-Lightweight title.  The 10-round bout will take place at the Boardwalk Hall (The Ballroom) in Atlantic City, New Jersey, March 29 on the undercard of Sergey Kovalev (23-0-1, 21 KOs) vs. Cedric Agnew (26-0, 13 KOs).  The event will be televised live on HBO Boxing After Dark® beginning at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT.

Dulorme is coming into the bout riding a 4-fight winning streak.  Since moving from welterweight to super-lightweight, Dulorme feels he's more powerful and will look to bring that power to Mayfield.

"I know I made the right move coming down from 147 lbs. to 140 lbs." said Dulorme. "My punches carry a lot more pop now and I'm making the weight with no problems.  I feel most comfortable at super-lightweight.  I know Mayfield has power so I will be fully prepared for his awkward style.  A fight like this is what the fans deserve.  My goal is to bring a victory back to Puerto Rico.  Mayfield is in danger."

"Dulorme is coming to show the world he's got the talent to be something special in this sport and Mayfield is no walk in the park," promoter Gary Shaw stated. "Dulorme's very comfortable at 140 pounds and I expect him to be in great shape for this fight.  I know if he's focused he'll come out on top."

Mayfield, known for having a unique style, has knocked out four of his last six opponents.  His ability to punch heavily with both hands makes him a difficult foe for any fighter.   He'll be looking to take the fight to Dulorme.

"My style is to always go for the knockout and wear down my opponent," Mayfield said. "I've seen Dulorme fight and he's got good skills but I'm a whole different animal.  He's going to have to withstand my hard hitting style, which is not easy to do.  I believe if I can catch him with a good shot on his chin, he's going down."

Having seen both fighters up close, promoter Gary Shaw feels this fight is going to have a lot of action.

"Both Dulorme and Mayfield have special talents that they bring to the ring," said Gary Shaw. "Dulorme is an excellent boxer, with a great jab, while Mayfield has a rough house awkward style.  The two of them have good power, and both chins will be tested.  I think it's going to come down to who wants it more which makes for a great night of boxing.  This is certainly a fan friendly fight, one everyone should be tuning into."

I agree with Mayfield,and tbh Dulorme did not take punches from an accurate puncher well..I know Mayfield does not seem accurate..He is and really hard to time..If Dulorme can pull this off,I'd be impressed..Sadly,I don't think he will..I think Mayfield…

Precisely, I was watching his fight with Herrera yesterday and he looked sloppy and his technique was poor. He doesn't utilize his hand speed. I just don't see it.

[QUOTE=cotto#1p4p;14272511]Aside from his power Mayfield is average across the board, I don't see how he can beat Dulorme. Abregu is a bigger, harder puncher and while he hurt Dulorme, he never had him in queer street. Dulorme just needs to…
