October 27, 2012Gary Shaw Productions in association with Greg Cohen Promotions, DiBella Entertainment, Thompson Boxing Promotions, Universal Promotions, Prize Fight, Joe Deguardia’s Star Boxing, and Zanfer Promotions presented an amazing night of boxing at the Turning Stone Casino

 

In the 10-round main-event, Argentine slugger, Luis Carlos Abregu (34-1, 28 KOs) defeated former undefeated Puerto Rican contender, Thomas Dulorme (16-1, 12 KOs) by way of seventh round TKO to capture the WBC International welterweight title.

 

Dulorme set the pace early as he boxed and used his jab to keep Abregu at bay.  But in the third round, Abregu landed a powerful right hand and dropped the undefeated contender Dulrome.  Thomas took the full 8-count and regained his composure for the time being.  In the very next round, Dulorme started to use lateral movement and it gave Abregu problems. Just as it seemed Dulorme was starting to find a rhythm, Abregue landed a left hook and sent Thomas to the canvas once again. Abregu’s right hands had found a home and Dulorme was still on wobbly legs and his corner stopped the fight.

 

“He was too young and maybe with time he’ll become a better fighter,” said Abregu. “He couldn’t get away from my right hand and I knew at some point he was going to get caught with it.  As you can see he did and his corner stopped the fight.”

 

“I didn’t want them to stop the fight but I respect their decision because they were looking out for me.” Dulorme stated. “I was controlling the fight but he caught me with a good punch but I came up and I was ok.  I’ll take this experience and learn from it.”

The co-feature attraction showcased San Francisco’s undefeated WBO/NABO Jr. Welterweight champion, Karim “Hard Hitta” Mayfield (16-0-1, 10 KOs) vs. Southern California’s, Mauricio Herrera (18-2, 7 KOs).  Mayfield’s NABO title was on the line.

 

When the opening bell rang, both fighters started off slow.  Mayfield was looking to land his signature overhand right, while Herrera was being the aggressor.  The action started to heat up in the fourth round when Mayfield started to land some combinations.  Herrera wasn’t backing down and snuck in a couple of right hands himself.

 

In the middle rounds, Mayfield started to find a home for his left hook.  Herrera continued to press the action but was finding it difficult to get off as Mayfield was smothering his punches.  A few powerful punches landed for Mayfield as he started to get into a rhythm.

 

The fight was close as it entered the final rounds but Mayfield started to land some nice combinations.  Herrera had his moments late but never landed anything special.  Mayfield retained his title with a unanimous decision victory as the scorecards read 96-94, 98-92, 97-93.

 

“My conditioning was good and I neutralized his punch output with my smothering,” said Mayfield. “I didn’t get hit with too many big shots and I’m happy with the win.  Next time I step into the ring I’m going to pick up my punch count.”

 

“I felt I was landing the better shots on the inside,” Herrera said. “I felt I won the fight but the judges weren’t scoring the body shots I was landing in the trenches. I’ll be back.”
