Zhilei Zhang Vs. Joe Joyce Rematch Set For September 2nd

Zhilei Zhang and Joe Joyce are set to have their heavyweight rematch on September 2nd, 2023, at the OVO Arena Wembley.

Joyce will be looking for revenge on Zhang, as the latter stopped Joyce in six rounds as a result of excessive swelling following a cut to his eye.

In doing so, Joyce lost his WBO heavyweight interim title that had placed him as a mandatory to face Oleksandr Usyk.

Not only that but a super fight with Tyson Fury was also scuppered as the ‘Juggernaut’ decided to exercise his right to a rematch.
