Unbeaten heavyweight slugger Zhilei Zhang of China is still eager to get revenge on his amateur rival, Anthony Johsua.

Zhang (23-0-1, 18 KOs) captured an Olympic silver medal in the 2008 games. He hoped to capture gold at the 2012 games in London, but he was knocked off by Joshua, who eventually walked away with the gold medal.

Joshua lost his WBO, IBF, IBO, WBA heavyweight titles to Oleksandr Usyk back in September.

There is a rematch clause, with the second contest targeted to take place in the first quarter of 2022.

Zhang believes a fight with Joshua could fill out a massive stadium in China.

Both fighters are promoted by Eddie Hearn's Matchroom Boxing - which makes the fight a realistic possibility in the future.

"I would love to fight AJ in China because of our amateur backgrounds," Zhang told Australia's Fightmag.

“The venue is there, the Bird’s Nest holds 100,000, so we have it all. Beijing and Shanghai are the biggest cities, very economically developed and boxing in China is growing. The sports fans there like boxing, they like AJ, so if we can make it happen it would be huge for boxing."

Zhang was in action last month at the Hulu Theater in New York's Madison Square Garden, as part of the undercard to George Kambosos' upset win over Teofimo Lopez.

He blew away Craig Lewis in two rounds.

At 38-years-old, time is running out for the 6'6 Zhang. He needs to get moving to secure the big names and world title opportunities. Currently he is ranked at thirteen by the IBF and eighth by the WBO.
