China which is an emerging power in amateur boxing has begun to flex its muscles in pro boxing with the first WBC light flyweight Silver title won by diminutive Xiong Zhao Zhong who scored a twelve round unanimous decision to win the title in a clash with Mexico’s Osvaldo “Chucky” Razon  in Kunming, China.

The WBC described the victory by the 29 year old  Zhong who is only 4 feet 11 inches tall as “a historic occasion.”

The WBC said this is a “huge step forward in the development of boxing in China.”

With the win Zhong improved his record to 19-4-1 with 11 knockouts.

The newly crowned WBC Silver champion had earlier won the WBA Asia Council Continental title with a twelve round split decision over the Philippines Rodel Tejares on June 27, 2011.

Prior to that he dropped a twelve round unanimous decision to another Filipino, Julius Alcos on November 6, 2008.

Razon  who dropped to 11-4 with 6 knockouts was coming off a twelve round unanimous decision in winning the vacant WBC Latino title in a clash with Ivan Meneses on January 20 this year.

China won a few medals in the last Olympics & if their boxers do well in London next month, I'd xpect the country 2 really push pro boxing...WBC already has it's foot in the door & hopefully tv 2 follow...

If China will ever be serious about pro boxing, there will be massive change in power in lower weight divisions.

I knew this **** was coming after reports claiming that Shaolin monks were seen practicing occidental boxing. No joke.
