What Happened in the First Zhang vs. Joyce Fight
Joe Joyce won against Joseph Parker before stepping into the ring against Zhilei Zhang. The British was the favorite to win the bout in the betting markets, but to everyone’s surprise, the Chinese Southpaw delivered an upset and stunned everyone.
The bout started normally, and as expected, Joyce delivered some heavy punches in the first couple of rounds. But the tablets turned quickly by the fifth round when Zhang landed some loud punches and injured Joyce’s right eye.
By the sixth round, it was quite evident where the fight was heading, and the referee had to step in, consult the doctor and announce Zhang as the winner. It was the Brit’s fight defeat in the ring, and it will be interesting to see if he can bounce back from the upset. Let’s check our streaming options in detail.
