Joe Joyce will look to put himself firmly in the frame for a world title shot this summer by seeing off fellow hard-hitting giant Zhilei Zhang tonight.

Joyce won the vacant WBO interim heavyweight title by KOing Joseph Parker in Manchester last September with a sickening blow.

‘Juggernaut’ has a perfect 15-0 record in his professional career so far and another win over Zhang will set him up for a world title bout.

China’s ‘Big Bang’ has a 24-1-1 record with his only pro defeat coming to Filip Hrgovic last summer.

Zhang will want to banish memories of that tight loss and stun Joyce in London.

  • The undercard action got going from 5pm with Joyce vs Zhang expected at around 10:30pm.
  • At the weigh-in, the giant Chinese fighter tipped the scales at a massive 278lbs, while Joyce came in at 256lbs.
  • talkSPORT will have full commentary from London, with coverage starting at 9pm.
