Rex Tso.

Unbeaten Rex ?The Wonder Kid? Tso is set for his highly anticipated return to the ring at ?Battle of Victors? on Saturday, October 8th against undefeated Japanese Ryuto Maekawa in Hong Kong.

The fight card is co-promoted by top Hong Kong boxing promoter DEF Promotions and world-leading boxing promoter Top Rank with ?Battle of Victors ? sponsored in part by Formula Electric Racing Hong Kong Limited, and will be one of the highlights of the FIA Formula E Hong Kong ePrix weekend (8-9 October).

Tso who at one point in his career was trained by Filipino Aljoe Jaro who put some sting in his punches has an impressive record of 19-0 with 12 knockouts and is coming off a resounding victory against top Korean Young Gil Bae last May 14th.

He is expected to have a tough time against fellow undefeated fighter Ryuto Maekawa of Japan who has a record of 11-0-1 with 7 knockouts. They will battle for the vacant WBO International Junior Bantamweight (115 lbs) title.

The always-dangerous Maekawa who is rated No. 2 in Asia by the WBO Asia-Pacific, is a highly regarded fighter from the fabled Watanabe Gym and is managed by former world champion Yoko Gushiken, who had 13 successful world title defenses to his name. Coming off a stunning 1st round KO victory in March, Maekawa is known for his counterpunching ability and hand-speed.

With an audience of more than 5,000 and eight scheduled bouts with fighters from Australia, Japan, the UK, Thailand, the Philippines, Indonesia, Nepal, Hong Kong, and Macau on the fight card, Battle of Victors is set to be biggest professional boxing event in Hong Kong history. Also on the card are Rex Tso?s stablemate Raymond Poon, ?The Macau Kid? Ng Kuok Kun, and white-collar standout Tom Taw of the UK, who is set to face former Indonesian bantamweight champion Marco Tuhumury.

Top Rank is working with DEF Promotions to organize its second-ever event in Hong Kong, with Battle of Victors marking Top Rank-signed boxer Rex Tso?s milestone 20th professional bout. Hall of Fame promoter Bob Arum of Top Rank said, ?I am very pleased to see Rex Tso emerge as a big star in this part of the world. Rex is world-rated and we expect to see Rex continue to succeed and impress in the ring and to become one of the big stars in Asia.?
