Team Puerto Rico Participates in Puerto Rican Day Parade in New York

Yesterday, members of Team Puerto Rico Boxing participated in the Puerto Rican Day Parade in New York. Walking the route to the loud cheers of the huge crowd were NABA Welterweight Champion Thomas Dulorme (12-0, 10 KO’s), José “Sniper” Pedraza (3-0, 3 KO’s), NABA Featherweight Champion Luis “Orlandito” del Valle (13-0. 10 KO’s) and Kenny “Battlestar” Galarza (15-1, 14 KO’s).

By participating in the parade, Team Puerto Rico celebrated their perfect sweep of victories over the strongest opponents of their careers by dancing to the beat of salsa, merengue and afro Cuban beats.

Last Friday, on ESPN Friday Night Fights, Dulorme had the biggest win of his career by beating the former world champion Marcus Corley by unanimous decision in a 10-round fight.

Super prospect Jose Pedraza said, “I will never forget this experience. Puerto Ricans in New York are very good people and I want to go back next year and be with them again.”
