Zou Shiming improved his chances of a world title shot when he defeated Yokthong Kokietgym in Macau on Saturday. The Chinese flyweight registered the first stoppage win of his professional career with a victory in the seventh round.

The two-time Olympic Games champion controlled the bout from early on and dropped Yokthong, from Thailand, three times before the referee stopped the bout in the penultimate round. The 32-year-old Zou meted out heavy punishment in the fifth and sixth rounds and knocked down Yokthong, 19, with a powerful shot in the seventh and then twice more.

The victory against the young but dangerous Thai improved Zou’s record to 4-0 after unconvincing performances in his first professional fights. Zou is being lined up to challenge IBF champion Amnat Ruenroeng of Thailand in Macau in November, a fight which would attract huge interest in China.

He turned professional after an amateur career in which he became China's first Olympic boxing medallist, first world amateur champion and first Olympic champion.

Miguel Vazquez's IBF lightweight title defense was hard on the eyes, but the Mexican fighter won a twelve round unanimous decision over undefeated Denis Shafikov or Russia.

London Olympics middleweight gold medallist Ryota Murata took just four rounds to stop Brazil's Carlos Nascimento and make it three wins out of three since turning pro.

Russia's Olympic light-heavyweight champion Egor Mekhontsev was an emphatic winner against previously undefeated Atthaporn Jaritram. He stopped his Thai opponent in the second round.

Marvin Sonsona of the Philippines knocked out Akifumi Shimoda of  Japan in the 3rd round to WBO International Featherweight title.

[QUOTE=UTEP]Great performance by Vasquez considering he was coming off a 14 month layoff. Hopefully he moves up to 140 next, I don't think fighters will duck him up there. Zou Shiming is the goods :boxing:[/QUOTE] Duck him? I think the networks are the one's who are going to duck him. ...

Where is the dumba$$ who said Vazquez was going to be easy work for Shafikov?? It's one thing to pick the wrong guy, we all do but to call Vazquez "easy work" for a plodding midget who hasn't fought sht is another thing!
