In the headline fight on the Queensberry v Matchroom card, we see 'The Bronze Bomber' Deontay Wilder - the Matchrrom team captain - take on China's 'Big Bang' Zhilei Zhang.

This is a fight between two heavyweights who are in desperate need of a victory having both been beaten by Joseph Parker in their most recent bouts.

Make no mistake about it, this fight carries tremendous danger for each of the two men.

Wilder and Zhang are both huge punchers and they both also like to come forward and let their hands do the talking!

Ultimately, one man is going to sleep this weekend, but who will it be?

For me, in his last fight, Wilder exhibited all of the signs of a fighter who should maybe consider hanging up his gloves.

He says that he has been revitalised by this opportunity to tackle Zhang, but the fact remains that the American has won maybe four or five rounds of boxing in the last four or five years, and looked way, way off his best last time out.

I do expect Zhang , who is a very skilled fighter with fast hands, to give him real trouble on Saturday night.

Zhang isn't going to have to chase Wilder down this weekend, and there's no doubt that the Chinese fighter will be the hardest hitter that Wilder has ever encountered.

As a consequence of that, I am expecting the fight to end inside the distance and I believe that it will be Zhang laying out his opponent.

He was poor last time out, but even so, he was still able to lay Parker down on two occasions, and I will be on 'Big Bang' to get the job done inside the distance at 21/20, whilst also taking a close look at the prices on offer for a KO/TKO win in the middle rounds.
