Zhilei Zhang Demands Tyson Fury Fight In China – ‘I’ll Do It’

Zhilei Zhang (25-1-1, 20 KOs) expressed his desire to go up against WBC champion Tyson Fury in China.

His comments arrived on the back end of his shock victory over Joe Joyce (15-1, 14 KOs), in which he stopped the ‘Juggernaut’ in the sixth round.

In a performance that was characterized by sharp, precise left-hands, Joyce’s eye was repeatedly targeted, causing the referee to intervene and stop the fight.

In doing so, Zhang became the interim WBO champion, putting him in line to face Oleksandr Usyk as a mandatory.

While a rematch with Joyce could occur, it seems that Zhang has bigger names on his mind. Step forward: Fury.

The latter was heavily criticized for his role in the breakdown of talks between him and Usyk after demanding a 70-30 split.

With that being said, a fight with Zhang could momentarily stop that criticism, as it is clear that the Chinese fighter is keen to get it on.

In his comments on Seconds Out, he said: “[I want] Tyson Fury in China. [Or] I’ll do it if Joe Joyce wants to do it. I’ll do it in London, New York, or China.”
