Mexican boxer Jesus 'Jibarito' Ortega (5-1, 3 KOs) is ready to make a statement in Macau, China on the 27th of July when he faces Chinese superstar Zou Shiming (1-0), a two-time Olympic gold medal winner who recently signed a promotional contract with Top Rank. Ortega, 19, will look to stop the lifet of Shiming, 32, who steps into the ring for the second time with his veteran trainer Freddie Roach.
"I feel very motivated about this fight, which can project my career even though we're just starting. Shiming is a fighter renowned for everything he did as an amateur, but let's show him that professional boxing is another thing and take the opportunity. I watched Shiming's debut against Eleazar Valenzuela and I know that I can win. I know I have the talent to overcome him. I worry about the fight being in China. I'll have to win round after round and if I have the opportunity to knock him out , I'll do it," Ortega said.
