PUERTO RICO (December 19, 2014) – Since coming home to Puerto Rico after his spirited HBO Boxing After Dark victory against Hank Lundy, world title contender Thomas Dulorme (22-1, 14 KO’s), has been very active in his community, participating in charity events with the World Boxing Organization (WBO). On this afternoon, the NABF Jr. Welterweight champion made his own charity event dedicated to the Community institution of “La Perla de Gran Precio”, a needy neighborhood in the barrio of Obrero, Santurce.
“Since I’m training in California, I’m always thinking on how to help my people from Puerto Rico,” said an excited Thomas Dulorme, who is promoted by Gary Shaw Productions, and managed by Cameron Dunkin. “Today I provided food to those in need and it was an amazing experience that I will never forget. Soon I’ll be visiting more institutions. I don’t want this to be a part time Christmas gesture as I want to continue helping those that are less fortunate.”
Since 1986 ‘La Perla de Gran Precio’ has been serving the needy and homeless men and women in San Juan, Puerto Rico, those with mental disorders, substance abuse, homeless pregnant women, and HIV-infected patients among others.
“Thomas Dulorme is a very giving young man who is always looking to help others,” said promoter Gary Shaw. “He’s educated with a college degree and a great role model to children of all ages. Every young man in boxing should aspire to be like Dulorme. He’s a gentleman in every aspect of his life, inside and outside the ring. I’m very proud to say he’s one of my fighters.”
Dulorme is rated #2 in the World Boxing Association (WBA), #4 World Boxing Council (WBC), #4 International Boxing Federation (IBF ) and #4 World Boxing Organization (WBO).
