Chinese big man Zhang “Big Bang” Zhilei (24-1-1, 19 KOs) threatened the British “interim” WBO world heavyweight champion (over 90.7 kg) Joe “Juggernaut” Joyce (15-0, 14 KOs) ) with blows that will be able to break through the protection of consciousness and vestibules even in such an impenetrable fighter.
This pair will clash in the arena in London (England) on the night of April 16, and the winner will have the right to fight with a full-fledged champion Oleksandr Usyk, either with the one who defeats the Ukrainian, or fight for the vacant place.
The Chinese warns that taking it on his head is a so-so idea.
Haye on Joyce vs. Zhilei
“Joe has good resistance to impact, but he has never felt Chinese power,” the 39-year-old native of Zhoukou (PRC) scares.
The Briton himself is worried that Zhilei can hit and check his chin.
Zhang fought in an IBF eliminator last year against Filip Hrgovic and shocked the Croat by controversially losing on points in that fight.
