Arum Plans Gold Medal Triple For February in Macau

By Ronnie Nathanielsz

Top Rank CEO Bob Arum informed BoxingScene.com/Manila Standard that he plans to stage another great fight card for February in Macau which will feature two world title fights and three Olympic gold medalists he recently signed up.

He said featured on the card aside from China’s popular two-time Olympic gold medalist Zou Shiming will be Japanese London Olympic middleweight gold medalist Ryoto Murata and Russian light heavyweight gold medalist also in London, Egor Mekhonstev.

Arum met in Corpus Christi with ALA Promotions president Michael Aldeguer and ABS-CBN’s Peter Musngi and they discussed putting "something together using one of the ALA fighters” on the February card and mentioned undefeated WBO Intercontinental super bantamweight Genesis Servania (23-0. 9 KO’s) and undefeated WBO Intercontinental and OPBF  super flyweight King Arthur Villanueva (24-0, 14 KO’s).  

Arum inquired from us whether we thought Servania  could move up to featherweight but we indicated he is perfectly comfortable at 122 and it wouldn’t help him to move up which is a position ALA boxing patron Tony Aldeguer later told us, he fully agreed with.

One of the rumored world title fights is a lightweight showdown between IBF champion Miguel Vazquez and top challenger Denis Shafikov.

[QUOTE=bigcursedawg;13921315]I don't know what Arum is going to be able to do with Shiming. 112 is arguably the deepest division in boxing. He would get murdered by Yaegashi who isn't a big puncher for 112. Imagine what Estrada, Segura, Gonzalez,…

[QUOTE=Check_hooks;13921355]People need to stop sleeping on Zou, hes already the biggest draw the sport has ever seen[/QUOTE] I'm sure Zou Shiming is a big draw, as Manny fights as cofeature on his cards in Macau.
