Thomas Dulorme Needs New Opponent For February 17 ShoBox

The switcheroos and change-ups to the boxing schedule just keep coming. With the next two main events of Friday Night Fights both changed, the February 17 edition of ShoBox: The New Generation is also in need of a replacement, as Mexico's Jose Reynoso has pulled out of his fight with Puerto Rican prospect Thomas Dulorme.

Reynoso's manager Charlie Perez says that the 27-year-old fighter was taken to the emergency room with a hip injury, leaving the hospital on crutches after having his hip popped back into place.

"It's unfortunate that Reynoso will have to pull out of this fight. I know it must have been a serious injury for him to do so," said Dulorme's promoter Gary Shaw.

"My team is diligently looking for an opponent to step in. Right now we have a few names that we're looking at. An announcement will be made shortly."

Dulorme (13-0, 10 KO) is a 22-year-old welterweight prospect who has flashed monster power in a knockout of Harrison Cuello, as well as patience in a win over the always-tricky DeMarcus "Chop Chop" Corley last year.

Other prospects to be featured on the card are Puerto Rican junior middleweight Jonathan Gonzalez (14-0, 13 KO and Brazilian middleweight Michael Oliveira (16-0, 12 KO). The three fights were more of the showcase variety than the mission statement of ShoBox usually calls for, and Dulorme is unlikely to find a better opponent than Reynoso would have been on short notice, but I suppose the good news is it probably won't be anyone with any less of a chance to win.

ShoBox will be live from the Chumash Casino in Santa Ynez, Calif., on February 17.
