Joe “Juggernaut” Joyce and Zilei “Big Bang” Zhang face off in a heavyweight bout at the Copper Box Arena in London today. Joyce (15-0, 14KOs), already the WBO interim world heavyweight champion, is hoping a win over Zhang (24-1-1, 19KOs) will set him up for a title fight. Holding the WBO interim heavyweight belt means Joyce is next in line to fight Alexander Usyk, but Usyk is completely focused on a heavyweight unification fight against Tyson Fury. Zhang’s only loss so far was against Filip Hergovic. This fight against Joyce will be Zhang’s second chance to prove that he deserves a title shot.
Most people are expecting one of two results for today’s fight. Joyce is definitely the favorite, and most people are expecting a late-round knockout of Zhang. Zhang, on the other hand, has been known to put on strong early performances, with 12 of his 19 knockouts coming in the first round. Joyce initially expressed concern at the prospect of being caught with a stray punch.
