THOMAS DULORME: 🇵🇷🗣
“Every fight is important and a win on Saturday will get me closer to what I want. I’m aiming for the world title and I’m going to keep working to get there.
“There wasn’t any one specific fight that made me know I had to make adjustments in my career. But I knew that I had to make changes to reach the peak of my abilities and I think I’ve done that and it’s shown in recent years.
“Jamal James is a good fighter, obviously his talent has got him to the position where he is now. But I don’t think that it’s going to be enough to get him through all 12 rounds on Saturday night.
“It would mean so much to win a world title, not just for me, but it would mean a great deal to the whole island of Puerto Rico. It would mean so much and it’s much bigger than me. That’s what I fight for.
“Me and my coach Joel Diaz made a few adjustments this camp. I never went back to Puerto Rico during the pandemic, I stayed in California the whole time. We didn’t stop training, we just slowed down a little bit and then built it back up once we knew when this fight would happen.
“I think James’ style is going to make this a great fight. He likes to stand there and throw a lot of punches. It’s possible that he’s changed up his style, and we’ll be ready for anything he brings, but I think that it’s going to be a very entertaining fight.
“Training in California has helped me a lot. I can focus better than ever being here. There’s also a lot of different styles of fighters here in the US, more than in Puerto Rico, and I learned a lot being around these fighters.
“I’m very happy and excited to be here. It’s going to be a great fight for all the fans that will be watching. I can guarantee a great fight.”
