China's Zou wins decision in pro debut

Zou Shiming won a unanimous decision in his professional boxing debut Saturday, dominating all four rounds against Mexico's Eleazar Valenzuela at Macau.

Zou's high-profile debut was the centerpiece of a show at the Cotai Arena at the Venetian Macau casino. The two-time Olympic gold medalist didn't disappoint the crowd, which waved flags and cheered for the most successful amateur boxer in Chinese history.

Zou won China's first Olympic boxing medal in 2004 and its first gold medal at the 2008 Beijing Games, adding a second gold last year in London. The 31-year-old flyweight then signed with Top Rank promoter Bob Arum, who teamed him with veteran trainer Freddie Roach.

Zou's pro debut was broadcast to nearly every home in China. He plans to fight for a world title within a year.
