Hmong-Chinese Boxer About To Make History In World Title Fight

An estimated 600 million people in China will be watching the first ever world championship fight for the vacant WBC straw weight title between Hmong-Chinese boxer Xiong Zhao Zhong and Javier Martinez from Mexico.

The fight will be Held on October 27 in Kunming, China and could possibly become the most watched boxing match in Chinese history.
Xiong is from Yannan Province and proud to be from the Hmong ethnic group (known as a subgroup of the Miao in China).

Back in July, Xiong became the first WBC light flyweight Silver title after defeating Mexico’s Osvaldo “Chucky” Razon  in Kunming, China.
The WBC described the victory by the 29 year old Xiong, 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, Xiong improved his record to 19-4-1 with 11 knockouts, yet remains relatively unknown in the global boxing scene.
His fight against Martinez is seen by some as being a political move made by the WBC, who is pushing for this fight in China. Aljoe Jaro, an esteemed boxing trainer, commented in Ring Magazine that Xiong hadn’t defeated any real contenders, but because he’s China’s best boxer, the WBC stands to make money in the most populous country in the world.
“The Chinese is no good, the Mexican is no good also. But the WBC wants the Chinese to win because China has a big market."
The winner between Xiong and Martinez will face Jaro’s fighter, Denver Cuello from the Philippines, for the world crown at a future
date.

Still, Xiong faces aThe Chinese government  gain their first world championship professional boxer, but the accomplishment could be argued as being the single greatest athletic achievement yet for a Hmong person
