Tyson Fury has been warned by Zhilei Zhang following his lacklustre performance against Francis Ngannou.
Fury narrowly defeated the former UFC heavyweight champion last month but in a much closer fight than most expected.
Zhang, meanwhile is coming off a stunning KO victory over Joe Joyce and is chasing a fight with the elite heavyweights in the division.

Zhang told Town Bizznizz, “When you look at Tyson’s career, he’s got hit, he’s got dropped and my punches are not a joke. When my punches land, it’s going to be a disaster for him.”
He continued: “After I beat Joe Joyce I wanted to get one of those big four names. Fury, Oleksandr Usyk, Deontay Wilder or Anthony Joshua. They don’t want to fight me, that’s very unfortunate. They are running away from me, but in the perfect world my next fight will be early next year.”
The ‘Gypsy King’ takes on Ukrainian heavyweight, Oleksandr Usyk on February 17th to determine an undisputed heavyweight champion for the first time since 1999.
