WBO Interim World Heavyweight Champion Joe Joyce recently opened up about his thoughts on the forthcoming match against Zhang Zhilei.
"It's a risky fight, but it's exciting. He's a big fella. But I'm a big fella. Two big fellas are going to collide and it's going to be a great fight."
"I could have waited around and have had an easier fight, but I thought, 'why not have a test and stay ready?'"
"He's a top fighter... and this leads me on nicely to Usyk or Fury, which is what I'm hoping for - a big summer fight, potentially," Joyce told Sky Sports.
As a reminder, the bout between Joyce and Zhilei is scheduled for April 15 in London.
