Chinese heavyweight champion Zhang Zhilei in an interview with ESBRBOXING.com discussed the disruption of the fight for the title of absolute champion in his weight between Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury, and also gave a forecast for the upcoming fights of British boxers against Alexander Usyk and Deontay Wilder, respectively.
On the disruption of the Joshua-Fury fight:
“It is a pity that the Joshua-Fury fight will not take place. I know that Eddie Hearn put a lot of effort during the negotiations to arrange this fight. But everything happens, I feel sorry for him. Everyone is waiting for the Joshua-Fury fight, but now it seems that he will be postponed. I don’t know when it will take place, but I’m sorry for Hearn. “
About the Fury-Wilder Trilogy:
“I think Fury will do it again. He will win this fight.”
About the match Joshua – Usik:
“As a matter of fact, I think that if there is no knockout in this fight, then Usyk will probably arrange an upset. If the fight lasts all 12 rounds, then perhaps Usyk will win, because he is good at a distance.”
