From Hattonboxing:

Chinese sensation Zou Shiming will engage in his second pro fight on July 27.

The two-time Olympic gold medallist and three time world amateur champion will face Mexico's Jesus Ortega at the Venetian Casino and Resort in Macao.

Promoted by Bob Arum's Top Rank outfit, the show will be a double header with WBO and WBA flyweight champion Juan Estrada facing Milan Melindo and Evgeny Gradovich defending his IBF featherweight title against Mauricio Munoz.

"I was very pleased with how quickly Shiming learned what I was teaching during our first training camp and he is the hardest worker in the gym," said trainer Freddie Roach.

"This time our main focus will be on getting him to punch harder. Shiming will need to learn how to sit down on his punches to maximize their power. I cannot wait to start working with him again."

Sounds a great card, wish i lived in macau :lol:

Bit pissed off it couldn't be a week earlier. I'm back home for 3 weeks then! And it looks like there won't be a good UK card late July. Melindo looked pretty good against Seran, he was loading up after the first KD but obviously has power. Estrada is rightfully the favourite but it will be a cracking fight. Gradovich is a solid grinder who will be ripe for Selby soon :deal

They've got the Penalosas back. Dodie Boy is a fun fighter to watch, he's a got a dig on him. Arum has taken note, he saw that its the Filipinos who create the atmosphere not really the Chinese so he's putting loads of them on the card. A nice setup for Pacquaio!

I actually think that Andy Ruiz Jr vs Joe Hanks is a canny little D level heavyweight prospect fight (despite Ruiz's Arreola like physique!)
