Zhang a "slight" favorite to beat Joyce a second time?

Saw this on fightnews:

Heavyweight Zhilei Zhang (25-1-1, 20 KOs) is an ever so slight favorite over Joe Joyce (15-1, 14 KOs) in their rematch this Saturday at the OVO Arena in London. Sportsbooks have the bout anywhere from pick’em to -141 for Zhang, who won the first fight by sixth round TKO. The WBO interim heavyweight title is on the line.

ESPN+ will stream the bout in the US, while TNT Sports will air the fight in the UK.

WTF, didn’t Zhang pummel him the first time around? Sounds like an easy fight to lay some money on Zhang with…

Zhang beat him fairly easily I thought in the first fight. I’d definitely pick Zhang to do it again, but I guess you never know with heavyweight power and hometown judging.

I’m going to Wembley Arena to watch this live, I’m hoping Joyce can get revenge but I’m not holding my breath. Zhang made it look pretty easy last time.


LOL. Told you guys. Again. I really should start betting on this stuff, I’ve got a license to print money in my head LOL.


zhang vs wilder would be fun

Heavyweight division has so much talent but no one fights each other.

Fury, Usyk, Wilder, Ruiz, Joshua etc.
Otto Wallin almost beat Fury like 4 years ago but hasn’t been able to get a big fight since.

Id like Zhangs chances against Usyk as weird as that is. Both southpaws and Zhang likes to counter and is so much bigger. I think Wilder beats Zhang to the punch since he’s a big and stationary target but he could KO Deontay as well.

Lot of good fights possible. But we’ll probably just see the elite keep fighting the Robert Helenius’s and shells of Dylian Whytes of the world.

I think Wilder would send Zhang into a trans-Neptunian orbit.

I give Zhang a great chance to beat Uysk.

How was the fight live? :slight_smile:

Yeah Zhang is a pretty stationary target with a giant head which is tailor made for Deontay. But he can punch himself so that makes it interestinf

Oh hell yea that fight would be fun as hell. We can only wish!!!
