The rematch is finally on for the WBO Interim Heavyweight Title. 

It has been officially announced that Joe Joyce would fight Zhilei Zhang for the WBO Interim Heavyweight Title on September 23 at the Wembley Arena in London. The match will air live on TNT Sports. 

Zhilei Zhang delivered Joy Joyce his first career loss earlier this year in April when he became the new WBO Interim Heavyweight Champion. Now, Joyce is looking to reclaim his title. 

Joe Joyce has also stated that this time he would not underestimate his opponent. He will make no compromises and will leave with everything in that ring.

Before losing to Zhang, Joe Joyce won 15 consecutive matches whereas 14 of his wins came via knockout. On the other hand, Zhang had his first career loss before he won the title from Joyce in April. 

The intensity of the rematch will be a lot higher than the first match. Joe Joyce will do everything to get his title back whereas Zhilei Zhang will do everything he can to keep the belt around his waist. 

Now, it will certainly be interesting to see who will leave the ring with the title after the end of this rematch on September 23.
