In a clash for the vacant WBO flyweight world championship, two-time Olympic gold medalist Zou Shiming (9-1, 2 KOs) scored a one-sided twelve round unanimous decision over Prasitak Phaprom (39-2-2, 24 KOs) on Saturday night at the Thomas & Mack Center on the campus of the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. Shiming dropped Phaprom in round two en route to a 120-107, 120-107, 119-108 verdict. Shiming easily defeated Phaprom two years ago in Macao and he obtained a world title after this repeat performance.
