Round 4: Papoem is starting to get into a rhythm, forcing Shiming into the ropes, not from Papoem moving, but from Papoem throwing better punches more often.

Round 7: Shiming keeps dodging while he throws quick 4-punch combinations every time he goes into a corner. Shiming right now is looking like he isn't even taking the fight seriously, staying very relaxed and composed. After the round, trainer Freddie Roach is worried about Shiming giving his opponent too much momentum and I agree with him.

Official Result: Zou Shiming defeated Prasitsak Papoem (120-107, 120-107, 119-108) via unanimous decision to become the WBO Flyweight Champion

This fight was nothing more but complete annihilation by Shiming. Shiming's gameplan was solid. He dominated the early rounds, and then later on, box defensively until he throw a ton of flurries to end each round. Shiming's an entertaining fighter, but still needs to work on his power a bit more. His speed is incredible.

The pay-per-view is plagued with audio issues, cutting in and out at times. I'm watching the fight card on an iPad, so I'm not sure if it is an online streaming issue or an overall pay-per-view issue. The broadcasters (Brian Kenny, Timothy Bradley and Stephen A. Smith) are having a lot of fun calling the fight and aren't as rigid as HBO's broadcast team (though I do love them too).
