Boxing: Zhang Knocks Out Joyce And Calls Out Fury

Date:

Joe Joyce lost his rematch with Zhilei Zhang to make it back-to-back defeats to the Chinese heavyweight, who will now look to a clash with Tyson Fury. Zhang shattered Joyce’s unbeaten record with a sixth-round stoppage in April, with the British fighter coming into Saturday’s Wembley Arena bout at his career-heaviest as he sought revenge. But this performance was even more convincing from Zhang, who ended the fight with a brutal knockout in the third round.

Southpaw Zhang had told the Englishman he was back to end his career and could well have proved true to his words with another chastening defeat for the ‘Juggernaut’, who now faces questions over where he goes from here. Zhang used his moment of glory to call out Tyson Fury. He said in his ringside interview: “To the audience, I want to ask you a question: Do you want to see me shut Tyson Fury up?”

On his performance, he added: “I am happy. Like I said before the fight, it is going to end sooner than the first fight, and I did it. Joe, hell of a fighter, respect to him. I like him and respect him; everybody please care for him.”

Zhang, 40, takes his record to 25 wins, with one defeat and one draw. Joyce left the ring without conducting an interview.
