On Saturday March, 29 in Atlantic City NJ, Gary Shaw Productions Jr. Welterweight sensation, Thomas Dulorme (21-1, 14 KOs, captured vacant the NABF title with a 10-round unanimous decision over previously unbeaten contender Karim Mayfield (18-1-1, 10 KOs). Scorecards read 98-92, 97-94 and 96-93 all in favor for Dulorme.

From the opening round, Dulorme controlled the action with his length and kept his distance as Mayfield tried his best to take the fight inside. As the fight went into the later rounds, Dulorme continued to mount a convincing lead as he boxed his way to victory.

Dulorme proved he has the talent to compete at the top level in the Jr. welterweight division and will now look to fight for a world title by the end of the year. He feels he can beat any champion in the division.

"Dulorme showed great poise tonight against a power puncher who likes to brawl," said Gary Shaw in an e-mail to Examiner.com. "He's now in position to challenge any of the champions at 140lbs and I'll talk with his team to see what we can put together. This is a great win for Dulorme and I'm proud of his accomplishments thus far. Garcia and Ariza are doing a great job with him and happy they've united. He's on his way to big time fights."
