Arum backs Tso, Shiming

Shiming was defeated in his much hyped IBF flyweight title bout with Amnat Ruenroeng, however, Hong Kong's Rex Tso won his bout against Philippines boxer Michael Enriquez.

Arum said: "Rex Tso put on a wonderful display. He'd better get used to all the attention because a lot more is coming."

On Shiming's defeat, all he said was: "(Zou) Shiming knows like all of us that all great fighters suffer a loss." 

Tso, who will fight against Japanese WBA super flyweight champion Kohei Kono on 18 July, added: "Next step: win a world title. After that, help to popularise boxing in Hong Kong and China.

"When people think of Hong Kong, I don't want them to just think of Bruce Lee. I want them to think of Rex Tso."
