Chinese boxing cash cow Zou Shiming stayed unbeaten tonight in Macau, showing off great speed and surprising power early in his fight against Kwanpichit OnesongchaiGym, before settling into a more familiar pattern of moving and boxing his way to a decision win.
Scores were 120-103, 119-106, and 119-106 for Shiming (6-0, 1 KO), who dropped Kwanpichit (27-1-2, 12 KO) four times officially in the fight. Kwanpichit also lost a point for low blows at one point. BLH had it 120-103 for Shiming.
Zou was dominant in many ways, but didn't leave this fight unscathed, either. Kwanpichit did land some good right hands, as Zou's habit of fighting recklessly with his hands at his sides betrayed him here and there, but he was never even rocked by a shot, or at least it never appeared as though he was bothered by anything he was hit with from the Thai opponent.
Still, Shiming left the fight with a cut near his left eye, which had swollen nearly shut. There is a lot of talk about Shiming facing Amnat Ruenroeng (14-0, 5 KO) next. Ruenroeng holds the IBF flyweight title and holds quality wins over Rocky Fuentes, Kazuto Ioka, and McWilliams Arroyo, and would be a big step up from Kwanpichit.
On the night, Zou landed 340 of 816 total punches (42%), compared to 119 of 534 (22%) for Kwanpichit.
