Taishan Dong: 6'11 Chinese boxer returns May 20Written by Leroy Cleveland
Will Chinese prospect Taishan Dong figure into the growing list of hot heavyweights?
So, maybe he needs a couple of more years before being bantered among the emerging elites but thus far he's brought the goods and seemingly has all of the tools to generate ripples in boxing's red hot heavyweight division.
Dong returns to the ring May 20 in Fantasy Springs Casino, Indio, California, USA against an opponent yet to be confirmed.
Originally from Beijing, China, the well-muscled 27 year old goliath debuted Summer 2014 by stopping Alex Rozman (2-7, 1 KO) in the second round, notching three knockdowns in the process.
Athletic and spry for a giant man, Dong, 6-0 with 3 KOs, hasn't fought since December and may be moving a bit too slowly through the ranks. At this stage, his handlers should have him in the ring at least once every 10 weeks if they want him to progress at a steady pace.
