In a thrilling main event at the 5 vs. 5: Queensberry vs. Matchroom event, Zhilei Zhang delivered a stunning knockout against Deontay Wilder at Kingdom Arena in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. The highly anticipated heavyweight bout culminated in a decisive victory for Zhang at 1:51 of the fifth round.

The clash between boxing promotions featured numerous exciting matchups, but the spotlight was on Zhang vs. Wilder. As Wilder advanced with a left hand, Zhang capitalized with a precise counter hook, leaving Wilder momentarily stunned and turning away. Seizing the opportunity, Zhang closed the distance and delivered a powerful right hand that ended the fight.

This victory marked a significant comeback for the 41-year-old Zhang, who was looking to bounce back after a majority decision loss to Joseph Parker on the undercard of the Anthony Joshua vs. Francis Ngannou fight in March.

For Wilder, this defeat adds to a series of setbacks following his trilogy with Tyson Fury. After being stopped twice by Fury, Wilder managed a win against Robert Helenius in 2022. However, he faced another hurdle with a unanimous decision loss to Parker before suffering this latest knockout by Zhang.
