CHINESE BOXER LU BIN TRIES TO MAKE HISTORY ON PACQUIAO-MATTHYSSE UNDERCARD


PhilBoxing.com



Lu Bin.

SINGAPORE – Chinese boxer and Rio Olympian Lu Bin (吕斌) will attempt to put his name on the history books when he faces WBA world junior flyweight champion Carlos Caņizales of Venezuela on the undercard of the Manny Pacquiao vs Lucas Matthysse world welterweight championship scheduled on July 15 at Axiata Arena in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. A win by Lu over Caņizales will earn him as the fastest boxer to win a world title in only his second professional fight breaking the record jointly held by Saensak Muangsurin of Thailand (1975) and Vasyl Lomachenko of Ukraine (2014) who each captured a world title on their third professional fights.


Lu Bin fought his first professional fight on Sep. 29, 2017 at the Heyuan Royal Garden Hotel in Beijing where he knocked out his Thai opponent Wanchai Nianghansa in the third round. That promotion was in partnership between Lu's handler Vincent Zhou and Filipino boxing legend Manny Pacquiao. After Lu's win over Nianghansa, Pacquiao told Zhou “I will give Lu Bin a world title fight in his very next fight.”

Pacquiao appeared serious in making Lu Bin a world champion as he told Vincent Zhou in Kuala Lumpur that Lu will train along with him under Buboy Fernandez so he can also see the progress of the budding Chinese boxer.

Lu was born on Oct. 18, 1994 in Yongkang in Zhejiang province on China's southeastern seaboard just north of Taiwan. As an amateur, he won gold medal at the 2012 AIBA Youth World Boxing Championships in Armenia and won bronze medal in the 2013 Asian Amateur Boxing Championships in Jordan. In the Rio Olympics in 2016, he lost to Kenya's Peter Mungai Warui in the first round, a close fight that Lu thought he had won as he prematurely celebrated by raising his hands in victory before the verdict was announced.

Lu will have a tall order in front of him when he faces WBA regular world champion Carlos Caņizales who has a fearsome record of 20 wins with 16 knockout and only one loss. Caņizales had a draw against highly regarded Japanese world champion Ryoichi Taguchi when they fought on Dec. 31, 2016 in Tokyo. Taguchi is the same Japanese who defeated Filipino Milan Melindo during their world title unification fight last December. Caņizales won his title by defeating erstwhile unbeaten Japanese Reiya Konishi last March. This will be Caņizales' first defense of his title.

Should Lu pulls it off and defeats Caņizales, he will not only make history but will also become an instant hero and a celebrity to the most populous country of world with 1.3 billion people. China currently is devoid of a world champion in boxing after its popular two-time Olympic gold medalist Zhou Shiming lost his WBO crown to Sho Kimura of Japan last year.
