Yao Yi Ma Inks Managerial Pact With Mike Altamura

Taiwanese-Australian Junior Middleweight prospect, Yao Yi Ma (11-1, 7 KOs), is the latest boxer to sign with notable Australian boxing manager Mike Altamura. The 28-year-old Ma is the current IBF Pan Pacific Champion and possesses two impressive late round KO victories over veterans Pradeep Singh and Virgil Kalakoda. "Yao's a very tough, high-energy fighter, all-action, and just keeps improving," said Altamura. "He only had 14 amateur fights, but has a great work ethic, and I anticipate he'll only continue to develop."

Altamura's immediate plan is to secure the boxer a bout in Mainland China in either March or April. "I've spoken with the two most prominent promoters in China, and both companies are interested in showcasing him consistently over there," Altamura said.  "Given his family background, his fan-friendly style, and his advancement in the pros ranks compared to other Chinese/Chinese-background fighters, it's a no brainer. I'm just awaiting a concrete date at the moment."
