He will train at The Venetian and The Palazzo through February 15, and then move to the Top Rank Gym, also located in Las Vegas, through March 23. He will return to China for his last two weeks of training camp.  Shiming, 31, is scheduled to make his professional boxing debut on April 6 at The Venetian Macao Resort Hotel in Macau.

One of the most popular Olympic athletes in the People's Republic of China, Shiming is the world's greatest amateur light flyweight, capturing gold medals in the 2008 and 2012 Summer Olympic Games. In the 2005, 2007, and 2011 World Amateur Championships, Shiming also brought home gold medals, making him his nation’s first boxing gold medalist in the World Amateur Championships and Olympics. . He became his nation’s first Olympic medalist in boxing when he earned bronze in 2004.
