Joe Joyce vs Zhilei Zhang official on April 15 in London

Following reports that the fight is almost done, it has now been announced that Joe Joyce will indeed defend his WBO interim heavyweight title against China’s Zhilei Zhang.

‘Big Bang’ will journey to Copper Box Arena in London to face ‘The Juggernaut’, who just had the best win of his career over former champion Joseph Parker.

Promoter Frank Warren promised ‘fireworks’ and believes that, facing a southbound, Joyce will be well prepared for a future hit with Oleksandr Usyk or Tyson Fury.

Joyce, getting ready for another night of checking her chin, is looking forward to a fun night of back-and-forth action.

“It was a great fight. He had a tough fight with Hrgovic but I think he won the match. Zhang is a big, strong, and big, southbound limber, and he’s been to the Olympics and all that. So he’s experienced and I think it’s going to be a great fight.

“He hit hard so I’ll have to watch out for it. Since Hrgovic and I have similar playing styles, they had a great game, so when we play against each other, it will be interesting. It will be carnage in the center of the ring!
