Kovalev Krushes Agnew and Dulorme Holds off Mayfield

kovalev11(Photo Credit: Larry Levanti/Main Events) By George Goddiess: When victories in the ring begin to come too easy for a rising fighter it becomes important that a test is provided along the road to the next stage. For Sergey Kovalev 2013 was a walk over year as he had four fights, four wins, all by knockout and all in the fourth or earlier. Kovalev finished the year as the new WBO titleholder positioned as a top two if not top three light heavyweight and poised to collide with the king pin of the division Adonis Stevenson.

Outside of Stevenson and fellow titleholder and legend Bernard Hopkins it was becoming difficult to name a fighter who could survive more than a few rounds with the powerful Kovalev. When Cedric Agnew of Chicago, Illinois was announced as Kovalev’s second title defense the major reaction was who? Heading into the fight the feeling was that Kovalev would win by stoppage and that Agnew did not offer all that much.

Thomas Dulorme to try his luck at light welterweight

dulorme3By Dan Ambrose: Having miserably failed when he attempted to step it up a class at welterweight in his 7th round knockout loss to Luis Carlos Abregu last October, Puerto Rican Thomas Dulorme (16-1, 12 KO’s) will be looking to slowly ease his way into the light welterweight division to see if he can find better success at that weight class.

According to Fightnews.com, the 22-year-old Dulorme plans on fighting his next fight at 143 pounds in February to see how he feels at the lower weight, and then if he doesn’t okay he’ll move all the way down to 140 to campaign as a light welterweight.

Was it too soon for Dulorme to be facing Abregu?

Image: Was it too soon for Dulorme to be facing Abregu?By Dan Ambrose: #3 WBA welterweight contender Thomas Dulorme (16-1, 12 KO’s) looked lost out there and confused in getting blown out by #10 WBC Luis Carlos Abregu (34-1, 28 KO’s) by a 7th round TKO defeat at the Turning Stone Resort & Casino, in Verona, New York. This was supposed to have been a winnable fight for the highly hyped 22-year-old Dulorme.

After all, Abregu had already been beaten soundly by Tim Bradley two years prior and had struggled to beat 2nd tier fighters like Richard Gutierrez and David Estrada. Abregu had been knocked down in a win over Gutierrez, who was past his best years. Dulorme should have been able to take care of the 28-year-old Abregu if he was really all that some boxing fans had thought he was.

Abregu found a home for his powerful right hands early and was able to knock Dulorme down in the 3rd round. From there the fight, which was being dominated previous to that by Dulorme, was much different with Abregu putting the pressure on the experienced 22-year-old. In the 7th, Abegu hurt Dulorme with a series of punches and then knocked him down with a hard combination. Although Dulorme beat the count corner wisely threw in the towel.

Dulorme-Abregu, Vazquez-Quintero & Mayfield-Herrera tonight

Image: Dulorme-Abregu, Vazquez-Quintero & Mayfield-Herrera tonight(Photo By Carlos Baeza / Thompson Boxing) By Jim Dower: #3 WBA welterweight contender Thomas Dulorme (16-0, 12 KO’s) will be stepping up in class tonight in a scheduled 10 round bout against the hard hitting 28-year-old Argentinian Luis Carlos Abregu (33-1, 27 KO’s) at the Turning Stone Resort & Casino, in Verona, New York, USA.

This is a big test for the knockout artist Dulorme because Abregu is a considerable step up from the types of fighters that he’s been facing during his four year pro career. The best that Dulorme has fought thus far are guys like Charlie Jose Navarro, Aris Ambriz and DeMarcus Corley. Dulorme didn’t look all that great against Corley and was hit hard on a number of occasions in winning a lopsided 10 round decision.
