This past weekend, the “Champions of Gold” boxing card in Macau produced the anticipated results with ease. The main man of the card, Zou Shiming won via unanimous decision to the tune of 99-91, 99-91, and 97-93. Although Shiming (5-0, 1 KO) still unable to duplicate the lone win via knockout (he’s looking for that KO the entire fight but his punching power would not warrant the KO) in his career, dominated Luis De la Rosa of Columbia the entire fight. His quickness and boxing carried the night This was Shiming’s first full ten-round fight. It seems, he will be gearing up for world title, for his next fight.
Cuban former two-time Olympic gold medalist, Guillermo Rigondeaux (14-0, 9 KO) had stepped up his game and wanted to erase the notion that he’s a “boring” fighter. In the process of doing so, he extremely rushed to the extent that it looked like a bad win for him. In Round 1, for me, it looks like he pulled a Mayweather cheap shot that finished the still head-butt-dizzy Sod Kokietgym of Thailand. You can find my complete observation of the fight here.
Fil-American Brian Viloria (34-4, 20 KO), also won with ease against Jose Alfredo Zuniga who was not able to get up after absorbing a left hook to the body that appeared to be a liver-punch, in Round 5.
