On This, Saturday Joe Joyce vs Zhilei Zhang will face each other At 3 p.m. ET / 12 p.m. PT, as well as Mayer vs. Linardatou and the undercard fights. When he faces Joe Joyce on April 15 at the Copper Box Arena, PT ZHILEI ZHANG promises that Joyce will experience the full fury of the Far East. Joyce’s WBO interim world heavyweight title will be on the line when Big Juggernaut and Big Bang trade blows in a bout for the chance to confront Oleksandr Usyk for the full world championship.
Joyce has proven throughout his career and in his bouts with Christian Hammer and Joseph Parker last year that he is unfazed by high levels of pressure. Zhang, who last year knocked out the heavily favoured Croatian Filip Hrgovic in a final eliminator for the IBF championship, cautions that he should not be prepared to endure punishment from himself.
The 2016 Olympic silver medalist fights Zhilei Zhang of China, who is widely considered a top contender in the heavyweight division.

Joe Joyce vs Zhilei Zhang Fight Preview
This weekend, heavyweight Joe Joyce will face off against Zhilei Zhang of China.
Joyce is a professional boxer with a perfect record and an impressive list of opponents, although he has yet to compete for a world championship.
And at London’s Copper Box, he’ll have to wait a bit longer as he fights Zhang, an action fighter.
After the cancellation of Oleksandr Usyk’s bout with the WBC champion Tyson Fury last month, the victor of this fight may have the chance to face Fury.
Joyce has a formidable opponent in Zhang and will need to be at the top of his game if he is to win his first professional world championship.
