    Hrgovic looks much better with his new trainer, also Hrgovic stated that he will not rush in the fight against Zhang and that he will drag him into deep waters and that the fight will not go to 12 rounds, Hrgovic currently weighs around 246 lbs while on the other hand Zhang weighing around 276 lbs, Hrgovic has a slight advantage in reach 82in compared to Zhang's 80in, both are ready for the fight and both know what awaits them...

    Sounds about right Zhang isn't at that level.

    This isn't saying much. Zhang's idea of deep water is round 5 or the third minute of any round.

    Zhang will be tired after 4 rounds, so Hrgovic should KO him after that.

    But early KO is also highly possible

    Zhang KO 3. The immovable chin of Hrgovic vs the irresistible punch of Zhang.

    They were planning to shoot Pelosi’s plane down with Zhang’s left, but they decided it was better to let him train and destroy Taiwan with a single punch later.

    Smart plan. Zhang's not much cop but he's dangerous in the early rounds when his kidneys aren't packing in or whatever, and he legitimately punches like a wrecking ball during that time. Mini-Vitali will likely keep him at bay with a mixture of lead hand probes and jab/right hands while letting Zhang overstretch himself trying to land a bomb. Depending on how well Zhang responds to MV's scoring shots MV will either step it up early or let Zhang wear down before taking him out mid rounds. I don't see many other scenarios playing out in this one.

    I didn't actually know until yesterday that Hrgovic had parted ways with Pedro Diaz and had hooked up with Shields

    He'll only have been with him for about nine weeks come fight night and it sounds like Shields is trying to change Hrgovic's style a bit. He wants him throwing a lot more jabs and he's not doing as much S&C as he was with Diaz. Not too sure about this. His jab doesn't look good

    Zhang could very well put Hrgovic to sleep.

    Hrgovic and Zhang are both untested, this will be both their first major tests.

    It is HW boxing, anyone can get put to sleep. McCall being the exception.
