"Boxing was banned in China under Mao Zedong because it was deemed too Western and too violent. But if Top Rank's CEO Bob Arum gets his way — and he usually does — the country will be the future of the sport."

“For any serious business person ... it’s a country of 1.4 billion people and it’s a country that’s emerging economically to be a real super power,” said Arum. “It’s a country where people are just starting to have the opportunity to sample what we in the West are used to, like professional boxing. I think if it’s done right, this will be the premier audience for the sport of boxing in the world.

Arum has lumped his bets on China’s two-time Olympic champion Zou Shiming, who made his professional debut on April 6th in Macau. Top Rank estimated that 200 to 300 million people in China tuned in live to watch the 31-year-old flyweight."

"Watch Bob Arum get upset when Goldenboy tries to copy their move to China in a couple of years. But, Bob should make plenty of money before them by tapping their national pride and martial arts history. China has global aspirations and boxing might increase their prestige in the world stage."

"For any serious business person ..."it’s a country of 1.4 billion people and it’s a country that’s emerging economically to be a real super power", said Arum. It’s a country where people are just starting to have the opportunity to sample what we in the West are used to, like professional boxing. I think if it’s done right, this will be the premier audience for the sport of boxing in the world."

Hopefully Bob Arum/Top Rank can get mining real high carat golds going there.
Yeah, putting Pac there in his next fight with some great named fighters on the undercard would be awesome! should really be the NEXT big thing in boxing entertainment. Not only that, it likes chain reaction for other sports, it will open doors for them -a greater income opportunity indeed.
