Full Card Revealed For PBC On FOX’s Return To Action
It was previously reported that August 8 will see the return of Premier Boxing Champions on FOX programming. Now, the entire main and undercard has been announced for the fight night inside the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.
The main event will feature an interim WBA Welterweight Title fight between Thomas Dulorme and Jamal James. Both fighters were supposed to fight on April 11, but the bout was postponed due to the coronavirus. The action begins at 8 p.m. ET.
The 30-year-old Dulorme (25-3-1) is coming off of a unanimous decision win over Terrel Williams back in September. He is 1-1-1 in his last three fights, having drawn with Jessie Vargas for the WBC Silver Welterweight Title before the Williams bout.
“I have been in training camp now for over four months for this fight and I can’t wait to get in the ring and put on a spectacular performance,” said Dulorme. “The delay only makes me more motivated. James is a good fighter but I am on a different level and it will show on August 8. I will put on the best performance of my career and win the WBA title.”
James (26-1) is on a six-fight win streak dating back to 2017. After losing to Yordenis Ugas back in 2016, “Shango” has managed to win four of his last six fights inside the Minneapolis Armory. The Minneapolis native’s last bout was a unanimous decision win over Antonio DeMarco in July.
“I’m excited and ready to be getting back in the ring after everything happening these last months,” said James. “Thomas Dulorme is a strong opponent and I feel that we will be giving boxing fans a great night of action. Training has gone extremely well and I am more than prepared to secure this victory.”
The co-feature will be David Morrell (2-0) v. Lennox Allen (22-0-1) for the interim WBA Super-Middleweight TItle. Morrell made his debut in 2019 and has two wins via KO. Allen started his career in 2004 and won his last bout in February 2019 via unanimous decision. He has 14 wins via knockout.
Another fight on the card will include Omar Juarez facing off against Willie Shaw in a special attraction bout.
FS1 will host bouts following the FOX card featuring top prospects. The action begins at 10 p.m. ET and will include:
- Mykal Fox (22-1) v. Lucas Santamaria (10-1-1)
- Vito Mielnicki Jr. (5-0) v. Chris Rollins (3-1)
- Luis Pena (6-0) v. Michael Coffie (9-0)
- Jose Valenzuela (5-0) v. Tedoro Alonso (3-2) – non-televised
“We’re thrilled to have PBC back on FOX, FS1 and FOX Deportes headlined by this great main event between Jamal James and Thomas Dulorme,” said Tom Brown, President of TGB Promotions. “James has proven that he is amongst the top welterweights in the world and he will again have a chance to show his credentials against a tough opponent in Dulorme. Combined with a stacked undercard of fights featuring rising stars and more, this lineup should deliver great action for fans all night long on August 8.”
