ZOU SHIMING started out with menacing intent against Kwanpichit Onesongchaigym, knocking down the Thai and showing power that the Chinese star, a two-time Olympic gold medallist, will need as a professional. Onesongchaigym dug in and started firing back hard punches. He handed Zou, who finished cut, with a swollen left eye, 12 hard rounds, which Shiming took by unanimous decision.
Local favourite KK Ng hurt Stephen Attard early on in their six rounder but when a cut opened on Ng’s forehead the New Zealander attacked more vigorously to close the contest. Ng however took the unanimous victory.
Hong Kong’s Rex Tso got drawn into a battle with Indonesia’s Espinos Sabu but eventually emerged with a wide unanimous decision after eight rounds.
Filipino southpaw Jerwin Ancajas knocked out Tanzania’s Fadhili Majiha with a heavy left hand in the third of eight scheduled rounds.
To close the show Andrew Robinson turned over China’s Qu Peng. The New Zealander won their four rounder with a split decision.
