Undefeated Puerto Rican welterweight prospect Thomas Dulorme (14-0-0, 11ko) will face battle-tested Alberto Herrera (8-6-1, 5ko) in the co-main event of DiBella’s Entertainment Broadway Boxing card on June 14 at the Roseland Ballroom Theater in New York. Herrera, who’s fought as high as 154 pounds, has faced top competition such as Anthony Lenk and Olympian Demetrius Andrade. The ten-round fight will be contested at 147 pounds.
“This is a good fight,” said Dulorme, who was born and raised in Carolina, Puerto Rico. “I have seen Herrera in action, specifically in the Andrade fight, and he is a strong fighter who has a lot of determination. I know what he is capable of and that is one of the reasons why I have prepared so thoroughly for this fight.
“I will continue to train hard, to give all my fellow Puerto Ricans great glory.”
Since his inception in boxing, Dulorme has been trained by the experienced Jose Bonilla, who in the past worked with world-class fighters like Edison ‘Pantera’ Miranda and former world champion Carlos ‘El Indio’ Quintana.
“This is a great fight and another opportunity for Thomas to further showcase his superiority,” Bonilla said. “Herrera has good boxing skills and has fought in higher weights, so you have to be very careful with him.”
