Boxing: Chinese Olympic champ turns pro

China's two-time Olympic boxing champion Zou Shiming makes his professional debut on Saturday in Macau, embarking on what he and his ambitious US promoters hope will be a fast track to a world title. A household name in his homeland -- where boxing was once banned under Mao Zedong -- the three-time amateur world champion faces the little-known Mexican Eleazar Valenzuela in a four-round non-title showdown that tops the bill. It ought to be a formality for Zou and anything but a resounding victory, preferably by way of knock-out, would be a shock result.
