Zou won the 6-round fight by a unanimous points decision.

"Thanks for the Manny Pacquiao’s team, as I’ve been trained in his camp in Philippine in the past one and a half month, and it certainly took an effect today, as you can see. I have to say today is one of most shocking experiences for me, and it’s very impressive." Zou Shiming said.

Some say he is finally looking like a professional fighter.

His previous two fights were unconvincing but this was better

He seemed fully at home on the professional stage for the first time.

Some say his previous fight in July, he looked like a weary fighter. This time, he was all business.

His advancing age is not ideal in a sport where most peak before 30. But his coach Freddie roach said boxing is measured not by your age but by how many wars you have been in.

"Feddie Raoch says Zou could be a world champion in 12 month time, we don’t know. But his every punch is not just fighting his opponent in the ring, but fighting history as well."
