ShoBox Results: Dulorme Makes Short Work of Ambriz, Gonzalez Wins Hard Fought Decision


By: William Holmes

Showtime’s card featured two top ranked Puerto Rican prospects Jonathan Gonzalez and Thomas Dulorme from Santa Ynez, California. Jonathan Gonzalez took on the tough veteran and Youngstown, Ohio native Billy Lyell. It was a closer fight than anticipated, and Gonzalez and Lyell fought and had a lot of close rounds. Gonzalez landed the harder shots in the fight, but Lyell made a game of it and stayed aggressive despite being tagged with hard body shots. If Lyell had a little more power, he might have won, but his shots were not affecting Gonzalez. Gonzalez won a hard fought decision victory.

Thomas Dulorme took on Aris Ambriz in the main event of tonight. Aris Ambriz jumped up from the junior welterweight division to take on the welterweight uber prospects Thomas Dulorme, but he probably should have stayed in the junior welterweight division. Thomas Dulorme pounded Ambriz and knocked him down twice in the first round. The referee wisely stopped the fight the second time Ambriz went down as he was clearly outmatched in the ring with Dulorme. Hopefully Dulorme takes a step up in competition in his next fight.
