James-Dulorme set for Aug. 8 main event bout


Jamal James and Thomas Dulorme will meet for the WBA welterweight interim title in the main event of a Premier Boxing Champions card on Saturday, Aug. 8 at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.

The fight was originally scheduled for April 11 at the Armory in Minneapolis, Minnesota, but it was postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

James (26-1, 12 KOs) is rated ninth in the welterweight division by ESPN. James, of Minneapolis, is coming off a decisive 10-round unanimous decision victory over Antonio Demarco in July 2019.

Dulorme (25-3-1, 16 KOs) is a seasoned veteran who defeated Terrell Williams by decision in September, and held former WBO welterweight belt-holder Jessie Vargas to a majority draw in 2018.

This bout will headline the return of PBC Fight Night on Fox. Two other bouts will be included on the telecast, a super middleweight fight between David Morrell Jr. and Lennox Allen for the WBA interim title, and a lightweight contest between Omar Juarez and Willie Shaw.

After the Fox broadcast, FS1 will televise bouts featuring prospects Mykal Fox, Vito Mielnicki Jr. and Luis Pena in separate fights.
