Parker: "I'm preparing for the best version of Zhilei"

Former WBO world heavyweight champion Joseph Parker shared his expectations from the fight against the current holder of the interim title according to the same version Zhang Zhilei, which is scheduled for March 8 in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

“I’m preparing for the best version of Zhang. Yes, many people say that my opponent is already old, he is 40 years old and will soon begin to decline. They prefer me because I am young and hungry, I have speed and movement. As for the forecast, I'm going to have a big bang.

“I don’t underestimate him. I don't think he's old and slow. Look, Zhang is gaining momentum and he's on top. So, I want Zhang to be in the best shape because this fight should bring out the best in me,” Parker said in an interview with iFL TV.
