China's double Olympic gold medalist Zou Shiming will get his first professional world title shot against International Boxing Federation flyweight titleholder Amnat Ruenroeng of Thailand in Macao in March, it was announced Wednesday.

The pair fought three titanic bouts during their amateur careers, with Zou winning on the last two occasions. This included a 5-2 points decision in the 2010 Asian Games light flyweight semifinal, with Zou going on to win gold.

Hall of Fame promoter Bob Arum said Zou deserved his world title shot, despite only having six fights under his belt and having been a professional for just 23 months.
