Canelo vs Kirkland undercard: 7'0" Chinese brute Taishan Dong returns

When Mexican sensation Canelo Alvarez faces KO artist James Kirkland on May 9 at Minute Maid Park in Houston, fans will be treated to a special attraction.

Seven foot Chinese heavyweight sensation Taishan Dong (3-0, 2 KOs) will join 2012 U.S Olympian Joseph "Jo Jo" Diaz Jr. (15-0, 10 KOs) and top contender Joshua "Grand Master" Clottey (38-4, 22 KOs) on the non-televised portion of the Canelo vs Kirkland undercard.

While it may be too early to consider him a prospect, Mr. Dong seemingly has all of the tools to generate ripples in a division that's getting red hot.


Originally from Beijing, China, the well-muscled 26 year old goliath debuted last summer by stopping Alex Rozman (2-7, 1 KO) in the second round, notching three knockdowns in the process.

Dong's opponent in May will be Ronny Hale (3-7, 3 KO), a 32 year old who fights out of Austin, TX. Hale last fought in July, engineering a first round knockout over a young man making his pro debut.

At this stage in Dong's career, activity is important. Let's hope we see him at least three more times in 2015.
