Zhilei Zhang: The new Big Danger in The Heavyweight División.

Yesterday Zhilei Zhang disposed of a tuff, top contender named Joe Joyce for the second time, only this time Zhang took him out in the 3rd round by KO. Zhang at 40 years old retained the intrim heavyweight WBO world championship making him a WBO mandatory for world champion Oleksandr Usyk. Zhang is a very avoided heavyweight being an over 6'3" southpaw and an ex olímpic medal winner I can see why. For Usyk to beat Zhang he will have to use his great footwork and not trade shots with Zhang because getting into a brawl wont workout in his favor. He will have to use his speed and movement to beat a powerfull Zhang that appears to be on fire right now.
