Thomas Dulorme Cordero (/djˈlɔːrm/ dew-LOR-may; born January 29, 1990) is a Puerto Rican professional boxer and world title challenger.[1] He is currently signed with Mayweather Promotions.[2]

Early life and amateur career[edit]

Dulorme was born on the island of Saint Martin and lived there until the age of 3, when his family moved to Puerto Rico. His father is a native of Saint Martin, and his mother is of Puerto Rican descent. His family later briefly moved to the Dominican Republic before eventually settling back in Puerto Rico when he was 8 years old. He began boxing at an early age, winning Golden Gloves tournaments in Saint Martin, Dominican Republic and Puerto Rico. According to Dulorme, his amateur record was 140–2. Dulorme's younger brother, Starling Cordero, is also a boxer.[1]

Dulorme identifies himself as Puerto Rican, stating his desire to "represent Puerto Rico every time that [he] steps in a ring".[3] Dulorme subsequently became one of the founding members of Gary Shaw, Lou Dibella and Universal Promotion's Team Puerto Rico, a stable composed of several high-profile prospects, including amateur world medalist and WBC Youth World Champion José Pedraza.[3]

Professional career[edit]

Although he struggled in his professional debut, a four-round majority decision against David Rodriguez, Dulorme was able to string together a streak of 10 straight knockouts capped by the stoppage of Harrison Cuello on the undercard of the Andre Berto vs. Victor Ortiz bout.[4][5] On June 10, 2011 Dulorme beat former welterweight titleholder DeMarcus "Chop Chop" Corley via a near-shutout unanimous decision, dropping the veteran fighter in the third round.[6] On February 18, 2012 Dulorme made an appearance on the ShoBox: The New Generation series, beating late sub Aris Ambriz via first-round knockout.[7]
