Vargas vs. Dulorme: Results, live updates and round-by-round scoring | Boxing
CHICAGO — Former two-division world champion Jessie Vargas returns for the second time in 2018 when he battles Thomas Dulorme for the vacant WBC silver welterweight title in the main event of the first card of Matchroom Boxing USA, live and exclusively on DAZN.
Vargas (28-2-1, 10 KOs) put on one of his best performances in recent memory when he fought Adrien Broner to a draw in April. Vargas expected a rematch with Broner coming off one of the better fights of this year, but it didn’t happen. The Las Vegas native is 2-2-1 in his last five fights, with those losses coming to Manny Pacquiao and Timothy Bradley.
Dulorme (24-3, 16 KOs) is a former junior welterweight title challenger, coming off of a decision loss to Yordenis Ugas after being docked two points for repeated low blows in August 2017. Dulorme also lost to arguably the best pound-for-pound boxer in the world — WBO welterweight champion Terence Crawford — by sixth-round TKO in April 2015. The 28-year-old’s biggest win was over former WBO junior welterweight titleholder DeMarcus “Chop Chop” Corley in June 2011.
