    I get it. Joyce is rightfully the favorite, and for anyone betting Joyce, let's hope he doesn't walk into Zhang's shots like he did Parker's.
    Those are two different PSI levels

    Plus joyce has been very easy to hit in his latest fights. I dont think he will fight like that vs zhang, though. I think he will fight slick, at least the first rounds. He can do it really well. But if he doesnt do it, and he fights vs zhang like he fought vs parker, zhangs chances are multiplied by a freaking lot.

    I think that Zhang, unlike Parker, can threaten Joyce more seriously because Zhang is far more dangerous than Parker, for Joyce this fight will be more difficult than people expect and I give Zhang a good chance, I will bet on him...

    This will be the first time, that I will bet against Joyce.

    He was easy choice against DD and Parker. Won good money for the gifts.

    Big bang Zhang produced the goods for me in his last fight against Hrgovic.
    I backed him to get a knockdown in first round.

    Will be looking for a similar bet against Joyce. It's easy to get caught cold from a big puncher like Zhang, especially when you use your head as defence.

    Not for me.

    Zhang should have won that fight against Hrgovic but the second half of the fight his gas tank was gone which was disappointing.

    Joyce will steam roll him and stop him once the tank is empty.

    Joyce knows this fight will come to him in the second half of the bout. In the early rounds, I expect him to use his jab like he did against Dubois and open up later on as Zhang's gas tank starts to empty; and it will.

    I understand these are good odds in a two-horse race but, because I think Joyce will win this fairly easily, they aren't odds which interest me. Joe has a good boxing IQ and adapts to the opponent in front of him. The blueprint to beat Zhang - exploit his poor stamina - is right in Joyce's wheelhouse and he has the chin to deal with what's coming his way before Zhang tires.

    I only see one winner in this match-up...

    Sadly only had 30 on the fight. But I just had a feeling! Rematch will probably go into the later rounds pending on weight/gameplan from both fighters.

    Joyce will probably adapt some different strategy. But I'll still take Zhang.
    Well done on the bet!
