“The Wonder Kid”

At the age of 28, Rex is a three-year pro. A rising young contender at 115 pounds, he is Hong Kong’s only professional boxer and a very popular performer in his home area.

He has been progressing very quickly and already broken into the Top 10 world rankings. Rex has already had two fights scheduled for 12 rounds, and fought opponents with much more experience and given impressive performances, including a fourth-round TKO win against former WBC strawweight world champion Wandee Singwancha in May, 2013; a fourth-round TKO win against veteran Khunkhiri Wor Wisaruth July 18 of this year at the Veneitan Macao; and a seventh-round TKO win to score a regional super flyweight belt in his last fight over Australian Brad Hore in Hong Kong.

After the win over Hore, Unus Alladin wrote at the South China Morning Post [excerpts]:

The Rex Tso Sing-yu juggernaut continued to steamroll towards a possible world title as Hong Kong’s Wonder Kid streaked to his 18th straight win as a professional on Saturday night with a seventh-round TKO victory of Australia’s Brad Hore in “Night of Champions II”.

Not even the best from Down Under could match the speed and craft of the Hong Kong star, who not only stayed unbeaten, but lifted yet another accolade, the vacant WBC Asian Boxing Council super flyweight title, in a flashy display at the Convention and Exhibition Centre. [End Alladin item]

Rex said, “I’m happy that so many fans come watch me fight. My gym and my team arrange for them to sit together. When they cheer me on, they energize me. Even though I’m the only pro boxer in Hong Kong, I feel like Hong Kong people are along for the ride with me.

“In addition to wanting to become a world champ someday, I also hope to develop pro boxing in Hong Kong. We have a long tradition of martial arts here, so there’s no reason why we can’t produce great, world-class boxers. It just takes hard work, exposure, and support.

“There aren’t many elite athletes from Hong Kong. I want to change that. I want to show Hong Kong people that we’re capable of anything, of competing with the best and succeeding.”

Describing his own style, Rex said, “I work on quality punches, and I am a volume puncher. I always cut off my opponents and try to push them to the corner.”

Regarding his nickname, he said, ” ‘The Wonder Kid’ reflects my youth and the rarity of good boxers in Hong Kong and China.”
