    Default Shiming Zou turning Pro, How far can he go?

    2 time Olympic Gold medalist goin pro training with Freddie roach. I didn't think he looked great in London 2012 and looks like he slows down quite a lot. Does anyone think he will make an impact in the pro ranks?

    It all depends on how his record gets padded early in his career, since he's training with Roach he will get preferential treatment. I personally think he has spent too much time in the amateurs and will have a hard time once he steps up.
    For every story told that divides us, I believe there are a thousand untold that unite us.

    Will have to see him in a few fights as a pro first.

    I sure hope so, it would be cool if we had some Chinese Pros, and China had a bigger interest in Pro boxing. I'd also love to see China host some Championship fights.

    Freddie & TR must be looking for someone to replace Pacquiao as their new cash cow.

    P.S Arum is probably rubbing his greedy hands together thinking about all the yen he could get from the Chinese market.

    Arum and the moneymen in Macau want to make boxing a big attraction in China. The Chinese are the world's biggest gamblers and the actual world's biggest gamblers, a couple of hundred guys (mostly Chinese) are currently given free private flights to Vegas and free everything when they get there to gamble half a million on every hand of cards. Big boxing fights have historically brought these guys through the doors and they've in turn been subsidising boxing for decades. Macau is China's Vegas and are now making moves to take the playas away from Vegas and boxing is the way they see to do it. So this kid is going to be incredibly carefully handled. He may not fight a live body for some time.

    A decade or two from now we might be watching the big fights from Macau.

    I'd love to see China get more involved in Pro boxing think of all the revenue that could be generated from boxing alone, and it would give western countries a foot in the door to market our other products. I see it as a big opportunity.

    I honestly have no idea. I neglected boxing in the Olympics and its two different worlds as far as the ring goes but have to say its great to have a potential-hopeful talent break out from behind the red curtain and turn pro here. They had a piece on him on FNF and it seems Atlas thought him lucky to have two fights go his way. It will be fun to watch.
