Ortiz Jr vs Dulorme Prediction: Is Ortiz Jr a Future Champion?

Vergil Ortiz Jr Preview

Vergil Ortiz Jr — an American boxer with an undefeated 20-0 record, which includes 20 KO victories — has future champion written all over him.

After being out of boxing for 17 months in the wake of his bout with rhabdomyolysis — a potentially life-threatening medical condition which occurs when damaged muscle tissue releases its proteins and electrolytes into the blood  — Ortiz Jr returned to the ring in January 2024, and delivered an impressive performance against Fredrick Lawson.

It was clear from the first minute of that fight that Ortiz Jr hadn't missed a step. His hand speed was impressive, and his defensive instincts proved that he had been training during his absence. 

Unfortunately, the referee stepped in to stop fight much, much sooner than was necessary. And so we didn't get to see Ortiz Jr close the show in style. Yet, him doing so surely saved Ortiz Jr's opponent from taking unnecessary damage.

Our Ortiz Jr vs Dulorme prediction is that Ortiz Jr will have chances for a more memorable knockout in this fight. 

Thomas Dulorme Preview

Thomas Dulorme — a Puerto Rican fighter with a 26-6-1 professional record, which includes 17 KO victories — bounced back from suffering three straight losses with a knockout victory back in July 2022. 

Although Dulorme hasn't been in the ring since that victory. 

Nobody can deny that Dulorme has gone toe to toe with some of the world's best boxers. He has faced both Jaron Ennis and Terence Crawford.  

And even though Dulorme didn't defeat those boxers, he has proven through the years that he's still got a lot to give the sport. 

While Dulorme's defense isn't always up to standard, his offensive capabilities can't be denied. Which is why our Vergil Ortiz Jr vs Thomas Dulorme prediction is that this should be an offensive display.
