LIGHT FLY 49 KG - THURSDAY, 05 FEBRUARY (19:30 GMT+8)
Location: Foshan – Venue: Lingnan Pearl
An all-Chinese AIBA Pro Boxing (APB) Inaugural Title Match headlines a great night of boxing in Lingnan Pearl, Foshan, as Light flyweights (49 kg) Zhonglin WU and Bin LYU rematch for the Championship belt in front of their home fans.
Their first match was a classic during week two of the competition, where 2012 AIBA Youth World Boxing Championships gold medalist Bin LYU emerged victorious over National Champion Zhonglin WU in an engaging battle.
In week one he survived a knockdown to cause an upset victory over AIBA’s number two ranked light flyweight Patrick Lourenco, while in the Matches for Champions series he defeated the previously undefeated Ecuadorian Carlos Quipo to qualify for the title match.
The 3-0 undefeated Bin LYU began his APB career beating the current AIBA World Champion, and APB number two seed Birzhan Zhakypov on points, and then followed up his victory over Zhonglin to secure a third win of the competition against Mark Anthony Barriga.
