Thomas Dulorme To Return in February at 143-Pounds

By Rey Colon

Welterweight contender Thomas Dulorme (16-1, 12 KO's), who in his most recent fight lost his undefeated record on October 27 via a seven-round TKO to Argentina's Luis Carlos Abregu, will return to action in February at a weight of 143 pounds in order to try to campaign in 2013 in the junior welterweight division, according to his coach Jose Bonilla.

"After that painful defeat at welterweight, Dulorme make a fight at 143 pounds and another at 142 and then we'll see how he feels at that weight. If he is not too weak, we'll go to 140 pounds," he said.

On the other hand, Braulio Santos, who signed with Golden Boy Promotions, and Camilo Perez, will late January or early February.
