Boxing News: BIG name fighter confident he could beat Daniel Dubois “easily”

Last updated

In the dynamic world of heavyweight boxing, confidence is as crucial as skill, and Zhilei Zhang, the formidable Chinese boxer, has plenty of both.

Recently, Zhang has turned heads with his bold assertion that he could easily defeat British heavyweight Daniel Dubois: “It might be too early for him to get in the ring with me,” Zhang told recently. 

This claim comes in the wake of Zhang’s impressive track record and Dubois’ recent victories, setting the stage for a potential high-stakes showdown in the boxing world.

Boxing News: Zhang’s Rise to Prominence

Zhilei Zhang, now 40, has carved a niche for himself in the heavyweight division with a commendable record of 26 wins, 1 loss, and 1 draw, including 21 knockouts.

His recent victory over Joe Joyce, initially considered a fluke by some, was convincingly repeated, silencing doubters and establishing Zhang as a force to be reckoned with.

The Daniel Dubois Factor

Daniel Dubois, a decade younger than Zhang at 26, has been making his own waves in the heavyweight scene. With a record of 20 wins and 2 losses, including 19 knockouts, Dubois has shown both power and potential.

His recent triumph over Jarrell Miller, where he became the first to stop Miller, has added to his growing reputation.

However, Zhang believes that despite Dubois’ talent and recent successes, he is not yet ready to face a boxer of Zhang’s experience and skill.

Zhang’s confidence in facing Dubois stems from his assessment of the younger boxer’s career trajectory and his own experience in the ring.
