Zhang to Face Tyson Fury Next?
Post his knockout victory against Joe Joyce, Zhang is leaning towards facing Tyson Fury next, wanting to “shut him up once and for all.”
Fury, who is scheduled to fight UFC star Ngannou at the end of October, could also be entangled with other potential bouts, possibly a monster British boxing face-off against Anthony Joshua.
The fight between Zhang and Fury could be a monumental event, and it’s not out of the realms of possibility with the odds standing at just 7/2.
Mandatory Challenger to Usyk
Zhang is now the mandatory challenger for Usyk’s WBO belt, with the prospects of turning his interim WBO championship into a genuine title.
With Usyk being the favorite for Zhang’s next fight at 5/2, it presents a significant opportunity for Zhang to elevate his career and solidify his championship status.
Potential Clash with AJ or Wilder
Anthony Joshua and Deontay Wilder are also potential opponents for Zhang. Wilder and AJ are looking at a bout themselves in early 2024, but if they fail to reach an agreement, Zhang could step in to face either one of them.
With odds of just 7/1 to face either of them next, they both remain…
