February 6, 2012
Puerto Rico's Thomas Dulorme has
graduated from Summa Cum Laude, of The Lyceum Arts and Technology school
in Hato Rey, specializing as an AutoCad drafter. Dulorme, a native of
Carolina went on to say, "I'm very happy to achieve one of my lifelong
dreams to graduate and have a profession. As an individual, regardless
of whether you're a boxer, you should seek to have options and I am
happy to have this great achievement and to help secure my future."
"Boxing is my passion, it's the force that makes me get up every
morning, but I know that one day it all ends and I will be ready when
that day comes," he continued. Dulorme, 22, also has four years
invested in a Bachelors Degree at the Polytechnic University of Puerto
Rico (UPPR), concentrating in Civil Engineering. He is scheduled to
resume his undergraduate studies in mid-2012.
"Drawing is my first love"
stated Dulorme. "My dad is an engineer and I grew up in that environment
working with geometry and dealing with the spaces available. I started
with small drawings and models and really loved what I was doing.
Gradually I improved through specialized classes and eventually jumped
to formal education." Dulorme, while training in boxing,
maintained a grade point average of 3.5. He delayed his studies at the
UPPR and enrolled at The Lyceum Art and Technology school in Hato Rey,
because he had to improve some aspects of his technical drawing, before
completing his undergraduate degree.
"I went to the Lyceum because I wanted to
improve and finish my studies with all the knowledge needed to practice
my profession effectively," said Dulorme. "Promotionally as a fighter,
I'm represented by Universal Promotions, Gary Shaw Productions and
DiBella Entertianment. I'm very happy with my career both inside and
outside the ring."
On February 17, Thomas Dulorme returns to the ring against Mexico's Jose
Reynoso, in a 10 round bout for the vacant NABF welterweight title. He
will be the main event on Showtime's boxing series ShoBox: The New
Generation at the Chumash Casino in Santa Ynez, California.
