Empires Collide Boxing Summary
Empires Collide started the night off with the introduction of all the members from each national team along with Evander Holyfield and Mark Breland. The national anthems from both countries was then sang. The crowd at Capitale was mostly pro China, probably because Capitale is located in Chinatown of New York. During a lot of the heated matches, you'll hear the majority of the audience chant "Ga Yao!" which is Cantonese and roughly translate into "give it your all". The supporters for Team USA would counter with chants of "USA! USA!" Halfway through the night, a lion dance performance was given in the boxing ring. China won the first two rounds easily especially with the referee stopping the fight between Jiawel Zhang Vs Ricky Rodriguez. Jiawel Zhang of China was the only one to win during the event without having to go to decision by the judges. The USA came storming back to take a lead by 5-3 after the 8th match. Fanlong Meng of China dominated Marquice Weston easily in the 9th round. Empires Collide must have decided to save the best for last as the two Chinese Olympic medalists closed the event with victories for Team China. The 2008 Olympic Champion Zou Shiming won a 15-2 decision over Santos Vasquez while 2008 Olympic silver medalist Zhilei Zhang claimed a 16-8 victory over Danny Kelly. China came out winning 6-5 for the night leaving many Team China fans leaving happy. Overall it was a fun and entertaining night with some great action from both teams. It was a great chance for everyone including the national teams to see where there are in preparation for the Olympics 2012 in London. Even people who were not boxing fans left the event looking forward to the Olympic boxing games in 2012.
