This past weekend saw Top Rank get one wrong as Chinese star Zou Shiming (6-1, 1) showed his inexperience and came up short against IBF Flyweight champion Amnat Ruenroeng (15-0, 5). Thankfully however that's not the end of the Macau run of shows from the American promoter who have announced that they will be back in the Asian gambling hotbed in July for a show scheduled to take place on July 18th.
At the moment the plan appears to be the much talked about clash between Hong Kong star Rex Tso (16-0, 9) and WBA Super Flyweight champion Kohei Kono (30-8-1, 13). This is a bout that has been spoken about since Tso's victory over Kono's stablemate Mako Matsuyama last year, though the talk has intensified in recent weeks.
That bout seems to be the basis of the July 18th card however the WBA may something to say about it considering they have just ordered Kono to negotiate with mandatory challenger Koki Kameda (33-1, 18).
It also seems like that the show will feature the exciting Ik Yang (19-0-0-1, 14) and the comeback bout of Shiming, however neither of these two have been linked to any possible opponents as of yet.
