Abregu stops Dulorme in 7

  •  

VERONA, New York (AP) -Luis Carlos Abregu of Argentina knocked out Thomas Dulorme of Puerto Rico with a flurry of punches in the seventh round Saturday in a welterweight bout at Turning Stone Casino and Resort.

Abregu (34-1) scored his 28th career knockout with a combination, beginning it with a hard right hand over the top, a punch he landed repeatedly in the fight against Dulorme (16-1), who is ranked No. 1 by the WBC.

Abregu followed with a left jab and a hard left to the head that sent Dulorme to the canvas, and referee Benjy Esteves stopped the bout at 2:35. The fight was scheduled for 10 rounds.

Abregu's only loss came to the current WBC welterweight champion, Timothy Bradley. He has come back from that loss with five consecutive knockout victories.
