Shiming (1-0) will be looking for the second win of his professional career after graduating from the amateur ranks where he was the most successful boxer in Chinese history. Ortega (3-1) will be looking to cause a major upset in what will be the biggest fight of his career in the main event of this Top Rank card.

Juan Fransisco Estrada (23-2) will be defending the WBO and WBA belts he won by beating  Brian Viloria in the same venue earlier this year when he takes on unbeaten Milan Melindo (28-0). Both the highly rated Mexican and the undefeated Filipino challenger weighed in at 111.6 lbs.

Evgeny Gradovich (16-0) will be defending his IBF featherweight belt and both him and his opponent Mauricio Munoz (26-3) weighed in at 125.75 lbs. Unbeaten heavyweights Andy Ruiz Jnr (19-0) and Joe Hanks (21-0) tipped the scales at 254.4 lbs and 236.8 lbs respectively ahead of their non title bout.

 

Fists of Gold II is scheduled to get underway at 6pm local time on Saturday night.
