Macau’s first world championship boxing card becomes the first boxing event to have it’s own theme song and music video
The Venetian Macao-Resort-Hotel is pulling out all stops for world championship boxing’s first-ever appearance in Macau by producing boxing’s first-ever music video featuring its own theme song. Performed by Stephanie Cheng (郑融), The “Fists of Gold” Theme Song Music Video (“皇金拳賽”主題曲MV) made its world premiere today and already it’s climbing up the charts.
“It’s a new era in boxing and Macau is the new frontier. Top Rank is proud to be a part of it with Sands China Ltd.,” said Hall of Fame promoter BOB ARUM. “A music video theme song for a boxing event? Incredible! Let the Shiming Dynasty begin!”
U.S. boxing fans will be able to witness the premiere of world championship boxing in Macau with Zou Shiming: Fists of Gold, featuring two world title fights and the professional debut of the Peoples Republic of China’s two-time Olympic Gold Medalist and three-time World Amateur Champion Zou Shiming. The event will be televised to the U.S. on Saturday, April 6, beginning at 2:00 p.m. ET/PT on HBO2. Calling the action from ringside from the CotaiArena, The Venetian Macao, will be broadcasting icons Tim Ryan and Larry Merchant and two-time heavyweight champion Big George Foreman.
The telecast will also feature two-time WBO junior lightweight champion Roman “rocky” Martinez defending his title against undefeated #1 contender Diego Magdaleno and WBA/WBO flyweight champion Brian “hawaiian Punch” Viloria defending his unified titles against Top-10- contender Juan Francisco Estrada.
Shiming, who has been training with Hall of Fame trainer Freddie Roach at the Wild Card Boxing Club in Hollywood, Calif., will make his pro debut against Eleazar Valenzuela (2-1-2, 1 KO), of Gusave, Sinaloa, México, in a four-round flyweight bout.
