ZOU SHIMING STOPS SANTANA IN SHANGHAI


PhilBoxing.com




SHANGHAI, CHINA- China?s boxing star Zou Shiming made a marvelous return to the ring and stopped Natan Santana Coutinho of Brazil in eight rounds at the Oriental Sports Center.

Zou boxed well as expected but Santana stoked the ire of the hometown crowd early when he clowned around and taunted Zou in the opening round. Zou continued to move and use his longer reach but he showed he was not afraid to engage Santana at close quarters.

As the rounds progressed, Zou landed at will and the cheers of the crowd got louder. In the fifth, a swift volley hurt Santana but he remained on his feet. Zou?s boxing lesson continued and in the eighth, the Brazilian was pinned on the ropes and a series of unanswered punches prompted Thai Referee Sawaeng Thaweekoon to call a halt at the 2:17 mark.

Zou wins the vacant WBO international flyweight title and resumes his title hunt after losing his IBF title shot to Amnat Ruenroeng of Thailand.

Zou is now 7W-1L, 2KO?s while Santana suffered his first loss after 12 wins, 10 by KO.

This fight served as the main event of ?Return of the King- the Rising of the Fists? held Saturday in Shanghai.

Japanese Olympic gold medalist Ryota Murata continues his winning streak with a stunning second round knockout win over Gaston Vega of Argentina.

Murata dropped vega with a grazing right in round one and finished the job in the enxt round with another cracking right that sent Vega face first to the canvas. Referee Atty. Danrex Tapdasan immediately signaled the end of the bout at the 2:23 mark.

Vega managed to get up after being attended to by the medical personnel at ringside. He also had a small hematoma over his left eyelid. Murata is now 9-0,6KO?s. Vega drops to 24-11-1,10KO?s.

Zulpikar Maimaitali of China won by TKO in the third round against Steve Moxon of Australia. Thai Referee Songworn Klungboonkrong stopped the fight when Moxon was getting hard punches while on the ropes. Time 2:43.

Ma Yi Ming of China beat Jay-ar Diama of the Philippines by split decision. Scores ? Atty. Danrex Tapdasan ? 58-56 for Ma, Samson Iu ? 58-56 for Diama, Yang Hong ? 59-55 for Ma.

In a bloody action packed bout, China?s Qu Peng beat Aaron Lai of Australia by technical decision in the fifth round of a scheduled six rounder.

The early rounds were close and a clash of heads opened a cut on Qu?s outer right eyebrow which got wider as the rounds progressed going into the lid. Qu scored a knockdown in the fifth but the heavy bleeding from his eye continued prompting the stoppage with the fight going to the scorecards. Judges scores ? Salven Lagumbay 48-46, Edward Ligas ? 48-46 and Han Hongxiang ? 49-45 all for Qu.

Abdullah Paziwapazi of Tanzania beat Andrey Kalyuzhny by TKO in the third round. Kalyuzhny, a Russian based in China, was sent down by a hard right in the opening round. But he managed to make it a give and take affair until he was pinned on the ropes unable to defend himself and Referee Surat Soikrachang stopped it at 1:10 of the round.

Marjo Borres (Philippines) and Mai Qing Xian (China) ended in a technical draw after a clash of heads in round two inflicted a cut on Mai?s left eyelid. Liu Qiang (China) beat Joseph Omana (Philippines) by unanimous decision after four rounds. Scores were 40-36 from Surat Soikrachang, Mekin Sumon and Sungworn Klungboonkrung.

In the first bout of the evening, Dong Chaoqun won by TKO at the end of round two against Asaidula Musha.

The boxing event was promoted by SECA and Top rank and officiated by the Professional Boxing Commission (PBC) of China.
