From WBC President Jose Sulaiman:
The World Boxing Council, which will hold its 46th convention in Chengdu, China, from November 2-8, congratulates China on the medals that several of its boxers won in the recent Olympic Games that took place in Beijing.
The Chinese fighters won two gold medals and one silver, and in addition to getting the victories, they showed exceptional quality at all times.
In the light flyweight division, Shiming Zou won the gold medal by technical knockout in the second round, when after 19 seconds of the round his opponent, Serdamba Purevdorj from Mongolia, conceded defeat as he had injured his right shoulder.
Zou became the first man to give his country an Olympic boxing gold medal in history.
The other Chinese fighter who won a gold medal, light heavyweight Xiaoping Zhang, defeated Ken Egan of Ireland by a decision of 11 – 7.
The silver medal was won by Zhilei Zhang, who lost by points to Roberto Cammarelle of Italy in the finals of the heavyweight division.
