"ZOU SHIMING: FISTS OF GOLD II" JULY 27 IN MACAU; MELINDO, SERVANIA STAR ATTRACTONS


PhilBoxing.com




"ZOU SHIMING: FISTS OF GOLD II" is set to fire-up Macau on July 27 when 2-time Olympic gold medalist and 3-time Amateur World Champion Zou Shiming gets back into action to battle Mexican Jesús "Jibarito" Ortega in the headliner of an exciting card featuring two world championship fights.

In the co-main event, 23-year-old WBA/WBO flyweight world champion Juan Francisco "El Gallo" Estrada (24-2, 18 KO's) of Sonora, México defends his two belts from the furious fire of undefeated Filipino Milan Melindo (29-0, 12 KO's).

In his last fight, the taller Estrada dethroned tough veteran flyweight Brian Viloria while Melindo knocked out Indonesian 108-pounder Tommy Seran.

The Mexican double world champion aims at running over Melindo to make his next world title defense against his popular compatriot Hernán "Tyson" Márquez, an all-Mexican affair that could be a blockbuster clash in this fall.

But the 25-year-old Melindo, a protégé of the famed ALA Boxing Gym of Cebu, Philippines, is a terrific fighter with plans of his own.

In another world title clash in "Fists of Gold II,", unbeaten IBF featherweight world champ Evgeny Gradovich (16-0, 8 KO's) of Russia makes the first defense of his crown from Argentina challenger Mauricio "Chuky" Muñoz (26-3, 12 KO's).

China's Olympic gold medalist Zou Shiming once again headlines the Macau card on July 27.

Another explosive collision will occur when undefeated super featherweight former Olympian Paul "Showtime" Fleming (18-0, 13 KO's) of Sydney, Australia, squares off tough warrior Mike Tawatchai (29-7-1, 20 KO's) of Thailand.

The heavily tattooed 25-year-old Paul Fleming, promoted by Top Rank, will be making his second appearance in Macau. In his last outing, the aggressive Australian southpaw defeated Japanese Ryusei Yoshida (22-6, 10 KO's).

During the combat, Yoshida, 29, sustained a bad cut over his left eye from an second round accidental headbutt. But the clash of heads was ruled a punch by Puerto Rican referee Jose Rivera.

Nevertheless, Fleming was way upfront in the battle and might have scored a technical knock out over the Japanese at a later stage of the battle.

Another undefeated fighter, 21-year-old 122-pounder Genesis Servania (20-0, 8 KO's) of Bacolod, Philippines, will take on veteran bantamweight Konosuke Tomiyama (23-5-1, 8 KO's) of Japan.

Servania shoots at improving his standing in the super bantamweight world rankings, the 122 lbs division where the unbeaten king is WBA/WBO unified world champion 2-time Olympic gold medal Guillermo Rigondeaux (12-0, 8KO's) of Cuba.

Moreover, in an exciting clash of undefeated world-rated heavyweights, 23-year-old Andy "The Destroyer" Ruiz Jr. (18-0, 12 KO's) of Mexicali, México, will exchange big bombs with tough 6' 3" tall Joe "The Future" Hanks (21-0, 14 KO's) of New Jersey, USA.

The unbeaten WBA #11 Andy Ruiz Jr. has won his last five fights by way of knockout, being his most recent scalping a quick destruction of veteran Carl "Iron Fists" Davis in the very first round of their battle last week at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas.

Ruiz is a fast 6' 2" 250-pounder heavyweight who can really bang hard and this scheduled rumble with undefeated WBO # 12 Joe Hanks will be his toughest more dangerous challenge so far.

Also, Hong Kong boxing sensation and current WBC Asia Continental Super Flyweight Champion Rex Tso (9-0, 6KO's) battles more experienced Rusalee Samor (20-4-2, 9KO's), a southpaw warrior from the Kingdom of Thailand.

The undefeated Rex Tso, 25, handled by DEF Promotios, comes from scoring a round four technical knockout over 85-fight veteran Wandee Chor Chareon Singwancha two weeks ago at Hong Kong's Convention & Exhibition Centre in Wanchai, Hong Kong; and the "Wonder Kid" wants more and bigger wins.

In addition, the rumble of promising undefeated super bantamweight Dave Peñalosa (6-0, 4KO's) of Cebu, Philippines, against dangerous former muay thai boxer Wisaruth Wor Khunkhiri is another exciting fight in this thrilling Macau boxing extravaganza that can't be missed.

"ZOU SHIMING: Fists of Gold II" on Saturday July 27 at The Venetian® Macao's Cotai Arena™ is promoted by Top Rank Inc. and Sands China Ltd., in association with Tecate and aired on HBO.
