Zhang Junlong (5-0, 5)* Vs Peter Omondi Okello (6-1-3, 3)
Chinese Heavyweights seem to be getting a fair bit of attention. One who has often been overlooked is Zhang Junlong, who has carved out an interested looking record for himself whilst fighting in his homeland. This bout sees him facing an opponent we believe was Peter Omondi Okello in 2013.
*Junlong's record is disputed though we've used his boxrec record here

February 28th 2014- Guoxin Gym, Qingdao, China
Zhang Junlong (5-0, 5)* Vs Gibbons (0-0)
Sometimes the Asian boxing scene can be a tricky thing to follow, even for us. That's certainly the case when it comes to Chinese Heavyweight hopeful Zhang Junlong who has a won titles that aren't recognised by boxrec and has a record we've been assured is incomplete. Zhang's most interesting opponent in some ways is a man known, on boxrec, as "? Gibbons" and amazingly we've managed to hunt that fight down. From what we understand "Gibbons" was a Thai fighter who was making the move over from Muay Thai for a one off bout.
(* Junlong's record is in dispute, so for ease we've taken his boxrec record at the time of this bout)
July 27th 2013- Penglai, China
Zhang Junlong (3-0, 3)* Vs Cullen Rodgers (10-37-2, 6)
Two Chinese Heavyweights have made headlines in the last year for their fights in the US. One of those is gigantic Taishan Dong, who at 7" is genuinely a monster, whilst the other is Zhang Zhilei, who had a farcical debut against Curtis Lee Tate. What few fight fans may be aware of however is a third Chinese Heavyweight, Zhang Junlong. Junlong, dubbed "The Dragon King", is trained by Evander Holyfield and has been described as the "Chinese George Foreman" due to his power and deliberate style which has seen him stopping all of his opponents so far, including American veteran Cullen Roger, who may have gotten the longest count in history.
(*Junlong's record is said to be very incomplete though for the sake of this we're using his record as recorded by boxrec.com)
