拳击在中国阔步前进 / BOXING IN CHINA MARCHES ON


PhilBoxing.com




上海 ?中国的金融中心,本周二下午,在位于浦东的豪华喜來登酒店内充滿了急切的中国媒体记者。菲律賓拳击英雄--世界著名的拳擊超级巨星帕奎奧 (Manny Pacquiao)來到上海,宣传他与美國拳擊高手--从未被打败的克里斯-阿尔吉里 (Chris Algieri)将于11月23日在中國的赌城-澳门,举行的次中量級世界冠軍較量。

从最初的被禁止到今天,拳击运动在中国的发展经过了几十年漫长的道路。現在看起來,中国已经形成一个完全成熟的拳击市场, 毕竟中国是一个跟武术有密切关系的國家,武术在中国的历史源远流长。未来,拳击节目在內地将会更多。今晚的梅塞德斯奔馳文化中心将有一场由中国本土的从未被打败的拳击新星来自大连的新星杨连慧的演出。而帕奎奧也刚好在今天到达上海支持该项比赛。

中国中央電視台每周日播出世界最新的顶级拳击节目。最近上海SECA盛力世家即将启动一个拳击节目,由两次奥运会拳击冠军邹市明的妻子聘任该节目主持人。

去年四月,世界著名拳击经济人?Top Rank总裁阿魯姆在澳门威尼斯人酒店賭場首次在举办次拳擊赛事。今年七月,又在澳门举办了六場比賽,这确立使澳门成为世界拳击之都的地位。

看起來,似乎拳击在世界人口最多的国家的复兴,而且已经没什么能阻挡他的发展。众所周知,中国在各项体育项目取得了优异成绩,如:游泳,棋牌,籃球,象棋等,很可能在拳击项目上也会有出色表现,我们很期待像Zou Shiming (邹市明), Ik Yang (杨连慧) 和 Rex Tso (曹星如)会出现在世界各地拳擊比賽中。拳击运动在中国的普及將標誌著一個中國運動員在这项世界上最古老的運動-拳击运动一样将有出色的表现。附件了 Dong Secuya 的报道

SHANGHAI ? This hazy Tuesday afternoon in the country's financial capital, in a jampacked room at the plush Sheraton Hotel in Pudong district filled with over-eager Chinese media, Filipino boxing hero and the world's acclaimed boxing superstar Manny Pacquiao came to town to promote his fight with undefeated American Chris Algieri in a welterweight world title bout scheduled on Nov. 23 in China's gambling mecca, Macau.

China has come a long way from banning boxing for several decades to what now appears to be a full blown promotion of the sweet science in a country that has close affinity with martial arts. A steady stream of boxing shows had been held in the mainland and many more are being calendared in the future. Tuesday night's show at the Mercedez Benz Arena here headlined by undefeated rising star Ik Yang from Da Lian to coincide with the Pacquiao visit is one such event.

China's CCTV has a full-on boxing show every Sunday featuring some of the best and latest fights in boxing. Recently, Shanghai-based SECA has initiated a regular boxing TV show hosted by Ying Ying, the wife of China's two-time Olympic boxing gold medalist Zou Shiming.

In April last year, Bob Arum's Top Rank has embarked on a ground-breaking first boxing event at The Venetian Hotel & Casino in Macau. Six events later in July this year, Macau has firmly established itself as one of the boxing capitals in the world.

It looks like boxing's renaissance in the world's most popolous country could not be stopped and its popularity would signal a new breed of Chinese athletes launch their careers in one of the world's oldest sports. Would they be able to dominate the professional boxing scene in the coming years? Highly likely. As in other sports fields ? atheltics, swimming, chess, basketball, and others ? the world should expect the Zou Simings, the Ik Yangs and the Rex Tsos to headline boxing events all over the world. ? With a report from Dong Secuya.
