An Analysis by Croatian Heavyweight Filip Hrgovic on the Rematch between Zhang Zhilei and Joe Joyce

Hrgovic, who holds an impressive record of 15 victories with no losses and 12 knockouts, was taken aback in the initial bout when Zhang, hailing from China, emerged victorious over Joyce. The Croatian commended Zhang on his speed and precision in the ring, qualities which he believes overwhelmed Joyce, who seemed unable to effectively dodge his opponent's hits.

As he considers the upcoming rematch, Hrgovic anticipates a tougher challenge for Joyce. With Zhang's agility and accuracy, Joyce's ability to turn the tide is questionable. Hrgovic underscored that Zhang has the capacity to nullify Joyce's blows, thereby increasing the difficulty of Joyce's task.

However, Hrgovic sees a glimmer of hope for Joyce if Zhang's condition wanes towards the end of the match. He suggests that fatigue could impede Zhang's performance, possibly providing Joyce with a chance to triumph.

The boxing world is waiting with bated breath for the Zhang vs Joyce rematch, set to take place on September 23rd in the iconic Wembley Stadium in London.
