Bob Arum today announced that he is returning to Macau on July 19 with another card that will be headlined by two-time Olympic gold medalist Zou Shiming (4-0, 1 KO) against an opponent to be determined.

Also on the card, will be unified junior featherweight champ Guillermo Rigondeaux (13-0, 8 KOs), defending his titles against Sod Kokietgym (63-2-1, 28 KOs).  The card will also feature Brian Viloria (33-4, 19 KOs) and Gilberto Ramirez (28-0, 22 KOs) in separate fights.

According to Arum, the Zou and Ramirez bouts will be televised on tape delay on HBO2, while Rigondeaux’s fight will air on UniMas as part of Solo Boxeo, due to HBO declining to air anymore Rigondeaux fights. This will also be Rigondeaux’s final fight under his current contract with Top Rank.
