Boxing Back in Toronto

Heavyweight Junlong “Dragon King” Zhang (19-1, 18 KOs) will highlight the July 27th Three Lions card at the historic Masonic Temple, now called The Concert Hall, in Toronto Canada. Zhang, 42, came up short in his last outing with the bout being stopped due to an injury sustained in the third round. He had previously been ranked within the WBC’s top 15. Opponent is TBA.

The co-main event will see a pair of Canadian middleweights, Three Lions newest signee Triston Brookes (6-0, 6KOs) and Mikhael Miller (9-3-2, 2 KOs) in an eight-rounder.

“We are excited to get Zhang back in the ring, he is really focused in training and is looking stronger then ever,” stated Daniel Otter (Three Lions Promotions).

“The card is competive from top to bottom and we are really looking forward to building our events at the old historic Masonic Temple, the venue is beautiful and the Toronto fan base are in for a great night of fights.”

  • The Dragon King was ranked in the top 15 of what? Maybe there was a 1 missing from the front of that number. 115?

    • I don’t know, but Zhang is the third most common name in Asia. It’s not pronounced at all like Zhang in “Big Bang Zhang”. It actually sounds similar to “John”.
