Thomas Dulorme Update

Photos: David “Boricua” Infante

Unbeaten NABF welterweight champion Thomas Dulorme and trainer Jose Bonilla are currently in lockdown mode in tower two at the Coral Beach Resort Isla Verde Resort in Carolina, Puerto Rico. Dulorme (16-0, 12 KOs), who is preparing to face Argentine slugger Luis Carlos Abregu (33-1, 27 KOs) in an HBO bout on October 27 at the Turning Stone Casino Resort in Verona, New York, only leaves the resort to meet the demands of hard training. He runs in the mornings, does light training at noon and leaves the hard gym work for the evenings under the guidance and supervision of Bonilla.

“I like working this way because I get away from everything and just think about boxing. This is the second time I’ve done this and I know this is helping me a lot. For this fight I’m working harder than ever, because I have a commitment to Puerto Rico and I will not fail. On October 27, I’ll do my best in the ring,” promised Dulorme. (more…)

Kameda-Ruiz on December 4

On December 4, WAB “interim” bantamweight champion Hugo “Cuatito” Ruiz (31-1, 28 KOs) will face WBA “regular” bantamweight champion Koki Kameda (28-1, 17 KOs) at the Bodymaker Colosseum in Osaka, Japan. Ruiz won his interim title in January 2011 with a nine-round technical decision over Alvaro Ruiz, after Ruiz was cut by an accidental headbutt. He has successfully defended the belt four times since then, three by way of knockout. Kameda is a two-time world champ. He won the WBC Flyweight title in November 2009, but lost it via close decision in his first defense. He then moved up to bantamweight and won his current belt with a December 2010 unanimous decision over Alexander Munoz. He has since made four successful defenses. Anselmo “Chemito” Moreno is the WBA bantamweight “super” champion.

Rick Story: Lessons learned

Heading into 2011, Rick Story was on a roll.

The Vancouver, Washington resident was coming off the biggest win of his career, an upset decision over the previously undefeated Johny Hendricks. The victory extended Story’s winning streak to five, and established the compact and powerful welterweight as one to watch in the deep and dangerous 170-pound ranks. Five months later, Story pushed his winning streak to six with a unanimous decision victory over former title contender Thiago Alves at UFC 130 . . . Click here for more by E. Spencer Kyle UFC.com

Underdog Sasaki dethrones Yuba

By Joe Koizumi

35-year-old Tadashi Yuba is our national hero in Japan, though he doesn’t belong to the international level any longer. Yuba, a southpaw six-footer, lately registered a great achievement of acquiring four national belts from the lightweight to the middleweight categories. When Yuba announced to defend his 160-pound belt against a novice named Sanosuke Sasaki months ago, it logically looked a terrible mismatch since the challenger would engage in his very first ten rounder. Why is the goddess of victory so cynical and capricious? The unheralded Sasaki (11-1, 5 KOs), 159.75, a former ping-pong player, produced an unexpected and stunning upset by showing a clean knockout over the prohibitive favorite Yuba (41-8-2, 31 KOs), 158.75, with a single right shot at 2:15 of the fourth session on Monday in Tokyo, Japan.

Walters-Prescott for WBA title?

By Gabriel F. Cordero

A source has informed Fightnews.com that Jamaican Nicholas Walters (21-0, 17 KOs) could face Colombian Daulis Prescott (26-1, 19 KOs) for the vacant WBA featherweight title after the Panamanian Celestino “Pelenchin” Caballero relinquished the title due to a controversial situation involving his mandatory defense. Walters is currently rated #1 and Prescott is #5. A mandatory fight between Walters and Caballero was slated for December 1 in Kingston, Jamaica after Canelo Promotions won a purse bid.

The WBA executive vice president Gilberto J. Mendoza said, “Let’s respect Caballero’s decision and the doors of the WBA will always be open for Caballero.” One source indicated that WBA might be making a public statement on the Caballero resignation. Today there are plans for a video conference in which Caballero will further explain his decision to the WBA, so the Caballero-WBA story may not be over yet.

Price: I’ve got no intention of giving up my belts

Price vs Harrison is LIVE on WealthTV.com Saturday at 3p ET/noon PT

By Karl Freitag

Unbeaten 6’8 heavyweight David Price (13-0, 11 KOs) says he’s expecting 2000 Olympic super heavyweight gold medalist Audley Harrison (28-5, 21 KOs) to bring it when they collide on Saturday night at the Echo Arena in Liverpool, England. The bout will be televised in the USA exclusively on Wealth TV.

“There’s a lot on the line,” said Price. “It’s Audley’s last chance, perhaps he’s coming out to make a point. I have a feeling it’s going to be a bit of a blockbuster and we’re going to go to war and it’s going to be a case of who’s the last man standing. (more…)
