Meanwhile, Zhang is also unbeaten and an unknown quantity. The Chinese pugilist suffered a majority draw against Jerry Forrest back in early 2021. However, 'Big Bang' claimed a second round stoppage victory against Craig Lewis in his last bout.
Another fight on the card to get excited about is Shakram Giyasov vs. Christian Gomez. Giyasov is a talented prospect in the welterweight division and Gomez will be a step up in competition.
