Richie Woodhall 
Former Boxer

Joe Joyce is quite capable, I think, of beating Zhilei Zhang!

He’s beaten as good southpaws in the amateurs when he was a top class amateur himself. I know he’s professional which is different, but Zhang was a top class amateur also, but he’s quite capable of handling that sort of style. 

I think Joe Joyce is a hard fight but he will win this fight!

Joe Cordina 
Professional Boxer

I think Joe Joyce thought that he was just going to walk through Zhilei Zhang last time, so yeah I just believe he just has to be a bit smarter. 

A lot of people will say, 'oh yeah Joe's not that good - he's this, he's that and just tough', but, NO NO NO NO, you can't win a Commonwealth gold, the European gold, and potentially the world gold if you are not a top level operator. He can absolutely win the rematch.

Zhilei Zhang 
Professional Boxer

Boxing is such a science and you know how much can a fighter change in such a short period of time!

I don’t know, maybe he (Joe Joyce) makes minor adjustments, but I don’t think about that - for me I always focus on myself. I study my strengths and weaknesses and will deliver an entertaining fight.

Johnny Nelson 
Former Boxer

Joe Joyce can box, and if he boxes and bangs, he will win!

Ismel Salas 
Joe Joyce's Trainer

We just need to find out what is the best way to approach Zhilei Zhang! 

I believe Zhang's tactic was to take early rounds last time, so we need to make sure Joe doesn't get caught in those early rounds .

Joe has never swollen up in his career like he did in the last fight, so we need to take care of him! 

Tony Sims 
Boxing Trainer

Zhilei Zhang had his number that night and he couldn’t really get out the way of his backhand. I just don’t know whether Joe can make those adjustments to change his game plan...

Darren Barker 
Former Boxer

Zhilei Zhang is a very good fighter - I think he's really, really good! 

I did worry about Joe Joyce up at that higher level because you can’t be taking shots like he was. They are silly shots and when you do that you are solely reliant on your chin - which you can't be.

If he fights in the same way, then there is only one winner - Zhang!
