Top prospect Dulorme back in June
By Dan Rafael
One of my favorite prospects, welterweight Thomas Dulorme (14-0, 11 KOs), will return to action June 14 in the headline fight of promoter Lou DiBella's "Broadway Boxing" series at the Roseland Ballroom in Manhattan.
Also on the card will be light heavyweight "Irish" Seanie Monaghan (13-0, 8 KOs), who has a loyal fan following and is a good ticket seller and action fighter.
Dulorme, who is a Dominican but has lived most of his life in Puerto Rico, where he has been embraced, is only 22 and has tremendous potential. His opponent is to be determined.
I've seen Dulorme fight several times, and besides his ability to box and punch (he has scored some monster knockouts), he also has Felix Trinidad-like charisma. There is talk of his making a fall appearance on HBO's "Boxing After Dark," if all goes well in next month's bout.
The "Broadway Boxing" shows don't air on live television, but they are replayed on New York regional network SNY about two weeks later and on various sports networks around the country.
