Dulorme decisions Estrella; Pedraza beats Valderrama

An aggressive Estrella tried to keep up in the fight, but Dulorme’s quickness and constant combinations caused Estrella to be outshined all the way across the fight. All three judges scored the fight 100-90.

“My opponent came into the fight overweight, but we went after the victory without caring how many pounds he had over the limit. It’s no excuse as I accepted the fight because I will fight anybody being that I am a warrior”, said Dulorme.

In the co-feature bout, Jose “Sniper” Pedraza (10-0, 6 KO) defeated Jose Valderrama (4-2, 2 KOs) by unanimous decision. Pedraza gave a boxing clinic, going from conventional to southpaw on various occasions. In the sixth round, Valderrama hit the canvas after a pinpoint left hook from Pedraza landed flush on his chin. All judges scored the fight 80-71.
