Meet Taishan Dong: The 6'11 285 lbs Chinese Heavyweight

His nickname is perfect, "The Great Wall".
* 26 years old
* Apparently hits harder than Tyson (according to a trainer and former Tyson/Lewis/Holyfield sparring partner)
* Ventured into wrestling, kung fu and kickboxing.
* 84-inch reach to his advantage!



He is now currently trained by coach John Bray at the Glendale Fighting Club in Glendale on Tuesday. At 6-foot-11 and 285 pounds, Dong will be making his pro boxing debut Friday at the Longshoremen’s Hall in San Francisco.

“Oh my God, he blows my shoulders out every day,” said Bray, who added Tyson was the strongest puncher he’d felt until Dong came along."

“His work ethic is phenomenal. He’s teachable. He wants to learn. He’s aggressive,” Gallegos said. “I mean, really, everything you could ask for. Just need to teach him English. That’s the last thing.”


Here's a video of his fight with Bob Sapp, this guy will be the first asian heavyweight champion of the world for sure.
