Zhilei Zhang, the interim WBO heavyweight champ from China, is gearing up for a potential showdown with ex-UFC heavyweight kingpin Francis Ngannou. Zhang's stance remains firm, regardless of Ngannou's upcoming clash with Anthony Joshua:
"Sounds like a fight worth throwing my hat in the ring for," Zhang quipped.
On March 8, Francis Ngannou is set to dance in his second professional boxing match, squaring off against the former world heavyweight champ, Anthony Joshua. This high-stakes bout is slated to unfold in Saudi Arabia.
Meanwhile, Zhang isn't just sitting ringside. He's also lacing up for his own scrap on the same day, featuring on the undercard of the same event. Zhang is set to trade leather with Joseph Parker.
