WBC World Championship - The Boxing Showdown

Dubai will host its first ever world championship boxing event, the ‘Dubai Boxing Showdown’ on June 28, 2013. Hosted by KO Promotions and Q&U Group, the event will take place at the Dubai World Trade Centre and will be televised to an audience of millions around the world.

The ‘Dubai Boxing Showdown’ – as it’s been named – will be headlined by the Straw-weight world title bout that will see 2012 WBC Silver title champion Cuello attempt to claim the WBC strap from Zhong.

Zhong (20-4-1) became China’s first ever world boxing champion when he defeated Mexico’s Javier Martinez in a one-sided points decision in November to claim the vacant WBC belt. Since his elevation to world champion, the 30-year-old has become a national icon in China.

He will have to be at his best when he takes on Filipino Cuello, who has been described as the next Manny Pacquiao by fight-fans in his homeland.

Cuello (33-4-6) earned the right to fight for the WBC title after destroying Mexican Ganigan Lopez with a second-round knockout in May last year.

Dubai’s World Trade Centre venue will host 3,000 boxing enthusiasts. Tickets run from 250 AED for Silver grandstand up to 1,250 AED for Platinum ringside tickets. Tickets are available in advance at select locations such as KO Gym and Virgin Megastores and at the door on event night.

The fight card will also include contenders vying for an International Title, and three undercard fights with professional boxers from regional top representatives from around the world.
