Billy Nelson Predicts Zhilei Zhang-Joseph Parker Showdown-"He might walk him down and get him with some shots"

Renowned heavyweight trainer Billy Nelson is eagerly anticipating the upcoming clash between Joseph Parker and Zhilei Zhang.

While not vying for any world honors, this heavyweight bout is generating considerable excitement, especially after the impressive performances by both fighters in 2023.

Joseph Parker remained active throughout the year, engaging in several bouts. His strategic approach proved beneficial when he faced the notably inactive Deontay Wilder on the Day of Reckoning card on December 23. Parker showcased dominating boxing skills, keeping Wilder on the defensive and preventing the once-feared right hand from detonating. The points win paved the way for a significant matchup on March 8, scheduled on the undercard of Anthony Joshua versus Francis Ngannou.

In the opposite corner stands the formidable Chinese fighter, Zhilei Zhang, who notably defeated Joe Joyce twice last year.

Trainer Billy Nelson, speaking to Seconds Out, shared his insights into the upcoming showdown.

“In fairness, Wilder was a shell of himself, and you could say Joe Joyce was as well after the first defeat [to Zhang].”

Nelson proceeded to analyze the potential outcomes of the fight.

“Joseph is a good friend of mine, and I’d love nothing more than for him to beat Zhang, but I think it could be the same outcome as the Joyce fight. A big solid unit in front of you, Joe’s not the biggest heavyweight, and I think Zhang might walk him down and get him with some big shots.”

The victor of this matchup is poised for an advantageous position, potentially facing the likes of Anthony Joshua or challenging the winner of the undisputed contest between Oleksandr Usyk and Tyson Fury.
