🚨 Tony Bellew makes Zhilei Zhang vs. Deontay Wilder prediction

Posted by

Zhilei Zhang and Deontay Wilder collide this weekend.

Arguably the two hardest hitters in the heavyweight division Zhang and Wilder are both looking to get to back to winning ways following defeats to the inform Joseph Parker.

Writing in his column for DAZN, former cruiserweight champion, Tony Bellew found it hard to pick a winner before backing ‘Big Bang’ to get the job done.

He wrote: ‘If this fight happened one year ago then I’d have gone for Wilder but since the Parker loss, I don’t know what he has left. This is a man who has put everything into his career, and he’s come out the trilogy with Tyson Fury with so many miles on his clock but also a lot of money in his bank. Can he get himself up for a fight like this as he failed to do so against Parker?’

Zhang looked like he was heading straight to the titles with two impressive knockouts over Joe Joyce, but he was also brought down to Earth by Parker. He’s gone about his work in a quieter manner than Wilder, but at his best, he’s a very dangerous man with a huge left hand.

With a gun to my head, I’m going to say Zhang but ask me tomorrow or the next day and it could well be Wilder. Both are massive punchers with Wilder’s right hand more explosive than Zhang’s left, but after watching them both against Parker, I genuinely don’t know what’s going to happen.’
