Start time, undercard, talkSPORT commentary and how to follow – Juggernaut to create ‘carnage’ as he eyes world title shot


Apr 15, 2023
'I'll use my own flames to heat up my opponents...'


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.
