HONG KONG’S REX TSO EXTENDS HIS UNBEATEN RECORD TO 17 WINS.
Argentine fighter César Cuenca denied China another world championship in Macau last night defeating China’s wild man of boxing Ik Yang.
Cuenca dominated Yang for 12 rounds to secure the vacant International Boxing Federation (IBF) junior welterweight world championship.
It’s the second big loss for Chinese boxers, following two-time Chinese Olympic gold medalist Zou Shiming loss to Amnat Ruenroeng of Thailand in March.
Victory at The Venetian was the ninth boxing event from Top Rank and Sands China.
The bout also featured Denis “Genghis Khan” Shafikov and Roy Mukhlis’ 10-round super featherweight bout, Nonito “Filipino Flash” Donaire and Anthony Settoul’s 10-round super bantamweight bout, and Hong Kong’s Rex “The Wonder Kid” Tso’s fight against Khunkhiri Wisaruth.
Hong Kong’s Wonder Kid Rex Tso continued to stack up the wins, after stopping Thailand’s Khunkhiri Wisaruth in the fourth round.
