Next fight of Zhilei Zhang is not determined yet.
Saturday's fight with Jerry Forrest turned out to be not the best for the unbeaten Chinese heavyweight champion Zhilei Zhang (22-0-1, 17 KOs). Zhang was able to draw this fight with great difficulty, having lost a lot of health in the ring. The manager of 37-year-old two-meter Chinese, Terry Lane, says that despite the fact that his fighter did not achieve victory, there will be no step back in his career.
