Zhilei Zhang vs. Joseph Parker Confirmed for 'Knockout Chaos' on March 8 in Riyadh!

The much-anticipated March 8 card in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, titled ‘Knockout Chaos,’ has taken an exciting turn with the addition of an intriguing co-feature. Interim WBO heavyweight champion Zhilei Zhang is set to face former WBO champion Joseph Parker in what promises to be a thrilling clash. ProBoxTV has been following the story since December when Parker secured a unanimous decision over Deontay Wilder, and Zhang’s advisor, Terry Lane, expressed their interest in a potential bout with Parker.

As the press conference unfolded, fans expected the formal announcement of the Anthony Joshua vs. Francis Ngannou fight, with the rest of the card details following. However, Turkish Alalshikh, the face of recent Saudi boxing events, posted a press release on social media revealing the entire lineup, including Zhang vs. Parker.

ProBoxTV reached out to Terry Lane to unravel the story behind Zhang vs. Parker. Lane explained, “We knew we would likely fight on this March 8 card before December 23. We had some options for possible opponents locked in, but they didn’t excite us. After Parker’s win over Wilder, we spoke to the Warrens (Queensberry Promotions) and rolled the dice. Once the Joshua vs. Ngannou fight was made, and Parker was still available, the powers that be, including Turki Alalshikh, liked the fight with Parker, and it was easy to get done at that point.”

The announcement sets the stage for another major fight card in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, with rumors suggesting six more cards throughout the year. Saudi Arabia is becoming a key player in hosting major boxing events, and fans can anticipate more thrilling matchups in the Middle East.
