China's double Olympic gold medallist Zou Shiming delivered the most impressive performance of his fledgling professional boxing career to register a points victory over Juan Toscana in Macau.

Freddie Roach-trained Shiming beat the Mexican on the undercard of Manny Pacquiao's fight against Brandon Rios at the Cotai Arena. His record improves to three wins without defeat.

Shiming was in control throughout, used a sharp jab to force the pace and also cut Toscana under the right eye over the six-round distance.
