China's boxing star Zou Shiming will face Prasitsak Papoem for the vacant WBO world flyweight title on November 5.

That bout is among four world championship bouts to be held at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas, highlighted­ by the ­welterweight fight between Manny Pacquiao and Jessie Vargas.

Since turning professional four years ago, Zou, China' s double Olympic gold medalist, has claimed several impressive victories and earned an outstanding reputation in China.

After losing an unanimous decision to Zou in 2014, Papoem - also known as Kwanpichit Onesongchaigym - went on a 12-fight winning streak, with all of his victories coming by way of knockout or technical knockout.

He is currently ranked third in the WBO flyweight rankings while Zou is in the second place.
