Wilder vs. Zhang headlines Queensberry vs. Matchroom fight card, date, tickets, start time, location & odds | Sporting News United Kingdom

Who has the better roster between Frank Warren and Eddie Hearn? A collaborative event between Queensberry Promotions and Matchroom Boxing, with bragging rights on the line, will answer that question, with the main event featuring heavyweights Zhilei Zhang and Deontay Wilder.

Zhang is a former interim WBO heavyweight champion. Beating Joe Joyce twice for the belt, “Big Bang” Zhang recently lost against Joseph Parker despite knocking down the latter multiple times. 

Wilder is a former WBC heavyweight champion who is 1-3 in his last four fights following a loss against Parker. “The Bronze Bomber” looks to return to his winning ways and potentially secure a fight against Jared Anderson later this year. That may mean digging down and showing a more aggressive side fight fans haven’t seen in a while. 

“I’ve been selfless all my life, catering to other people, making other people have a wonderful life, been able to support and help so many people off my blood, sweat, and tears,” Wilder told Sky Sports. “As fighters, we make this money off true blood, sweat, and tears, and to be where I am right now, to know I’ve done so much greatness, now it’s all about me. I call it being selfish, and sometimes it’s okay to be selfish.

“At this point in time, for me to get that hunger and desire back, to give people ‘The Bronze Bomber’ who they so miss now, I’ve got to be selfish.”

A featured fight on the card will be Dmitry Bivol defending the WBA light  heavyweight title against Malik Zinad. Bivol won the interim WBA light heavyweight title in 2016 and was elevated to full-time champion. He became a worldwide sensation when he beat Canelo Alvarez in a one-sided affair in 2022. Bivol has since won two straight.

Zinad will compete for his first world title. The unranked fighter has 16 wins via knockout. Bivol was supposed to fight Artur Beterbiev to determine the undisputed light heavyweight champion, but the latter backed out due to an injury.

Here’s everything we know so far about the 5 vs. 5 event, including the date, location, tune-in details, tickets and more.
