Arum plans on having Zou Shiming fight on Pacquiao-Rios undercard in November


Recommended Posts

In a not surprising move, Top Rank promoter Bob Arum will be sticking unbeaten Chinese flyweight Zou Shiming (1-0) on the undercard of the November 23rd Manny Pacquiao vs. Brandon Rios pay per view card from Macao, China. Shiming, 32, has a fight scheduled 6-round bout this month against Mexican novice Jesus Ortega (3-1, 2 KO’s) that Shiming has to take care of first at the Venetian Casino & Resort in Macao, China. Shiming’s fight on the Pacquiao vs. Rios card will be an 8 round bout, and following that Arum wants to move Shiming up to 10 round bouts. The idea here is to quickly move the former two-time Chinese Olympic Gold medalist quickly so that he can fight for a world title by next year provided he keeps winning and looking good in his bouts. Arum thinks he can turn Shiming into a hugely popular fighter both in China and in the United States.

From the guy that used to bring you Butterbean and Mia St. John taking up slots on major PPV's comes the unimpressive Chinese Gold Medalist against some Mexican no-hoper who's 3-1 record has been built up against four guys with a combined 1-4 record (and Gomez's one loss was to the guy who had actually won a fight). Thanks for tossing this shit on the card, Bob.
