Although Taishan Dong doesn't have the resume of either Floyd Mayweather or Manny Pacquiao, the boxer from China may be one of the most feared fighters in the world.

At 7'0" and 287 pounds, the 26-year-old man known as the "Great Wall" is a force in the ring. 

On July 18, Taishan made his pro boxing—and United States—debut against the 6'3", 255-pound Alex Rozman. The Great Wall won the match via knockout in the second round.

As the broadcasters noted, it will likely be tough for Taishan to find opponents to fight.
