Zhilei Zhang (22-0-1) & Matchroom/DAZN...

  • CHB will be closing down as of 31st July 2021. It's been a brilliant experience to run the website for the past 9 years, however it's time for me to move onto different projects. Thanks to every single person involved, from staff, former staff, posters old and current. All support means more than anyone knows. Thanks for your understanding.

is Hearn/Matchroom making moves into the Chinese market?

Apparently something was weird and off for that Forrest fight. Who knows how credible this is, interested to see what happens next anyways. Doesn't mean I'll sit through an entire fight of his again if he performs similarly though.

"I checked in with Zhang co-manager Terry Lane of Lane Brothers Boxing after the dust settled. I asked if it was basically a stamina issue, but Lane replied, “Actually more serious than that. Zhang had a great camp. For some reason, he was extremely dehydrated and his kidneys began to fail during the fight. He also had very low iron levels and we learned he was anemic.

“He was rushed to the hospital and wasn’t released for three days. Head and heart were fine, thank god. But he feels good, and we are talking to some medical professionals to get to the bottom of what happened and what is going on with him. But he will be back. Matchroom has been very supportive.”"
