Joe Joyce vs Zhilei Zhang: How to watch, UK start time, Full card

On Saturday night, Joe Joyce and Zhilei Zhang will clash in an epic encounter that looks guaranteed to create fireworks, and we’re telling you exactly how to watch the action.

The term ‘fun fight’ gets thrown around far too often in combat sports. However, this weekend’s match-up between ‘The Juggernaut’ and ‘Big Bang’ is almost certain to gel into a slugfest that fans won’t be able to take their eyes off of.

In his career so far, the Brit has made a name for himself for his wonderfully awkward personality and incredible fighting style. The powerhouse has traded on his ability to eat his opponent’s best shots, before breaking their hearts as he gleefully marches them down and stops them under the strain of his unrelenting engine.

And in his last outing, against Joseph Parker, he proved that he’s far more than a basic fighter with a sturdy chin.

The 37-year-old utilised his underrated boxing skill to dismantle the New Zealander en route to a brutal 11th-round stoppage, lining himself up for a future shot at the world titles. But before he gets his hands on Tyson Fury or Oleksandr Usyk, he’ll have to get through an extremely tough challenge, a ‘great wall’ if you like.

Zhang punches like a mule and, in all reality, beat Filip Hrgovic in his last outing. Therefore with so much on the line, this is a collision that fans can’t afford to miss.
