Two-time Olympic gold medalist for China, Zou Shiming, will head right back to Cotai Arena at the Venetian Casino & Resort in Macau, China on Saturday, July 27th,
for his second professional fight. Shiming(1-0), made his professional debut with a 4-round unanimous decision over Eleazar Valenzuela at the same venue last month. The 32 year-old Zou will now fight in a scheduled 6-round bout against Mexico’s Jesus “Jibarito” Ortega(3-1, 2 KO’s). The bout along with potentially two others, will air on HBO2 via tape delay in the United States.
Also on the card making his first defense of his IBF Featherweight title will be Evengy Gradovich, who faces Mauricio Javier Munoz(26-3, 12 KO’s) of Argentina in a scheduled 12-round affair. “El Ruso Mexicano”(Gradovich), is coming off an upset split decision win over previously undefeated Billy Dib on ESPN’s Friday Night Fights on March 1st of this year.
Potentially opening the Zou-headlined and Top Rank Promotions card will be newly-crowned WBO & WBA Flyweight Champion, Juan Francisco Estrada. Like Zou, Estrada would also be returning to fight back-to-back fights at the Cotai Arena. Mexico’s Estrada(24-2, 18 KO’s), dethroned Brian Viloria by split decision on the previously stated April 6th card in which Shiming debuted on. Estrada will be facing undefeated Filipino Milan Melindo(29-0, 12 KO’s) over a scheduled 12-round contest.
