So all the chat (excuse the pun) is about AI and how it can chancge the world, so we thought let’s ask who will win between Joe Joyce v Zhilei Zhang
This is the response…
As an AI language model, I do not have the ability to predict the outcome of specific sporting events, including boxing matches, as they are determined by a wide variety of factors that can influence the outcome, such as the boxers’ skills, strategies, physical conditions, and even unforeseen circumstances during the fight. Boxing matches are inherently unpredictable and can be influenced by many variables.
Joe Joyce and Zhilei Zhang are both professional heavyweight boxers with their unique strengths and styles. Joe Joyce, known as “The Juggernaut,” is a British boxer with a powerful punching style and an Olympic silver medal in super heavyweight division. Zhilei Zhang, also known as “Big Bang,” is a Chinese boxer who is known for his size and punching power.
The outcome of a boxing match between Joe Joyce and Zhilei Zhang would depend on various factors such as their training, preparation, form on the day of the fight, and their ability to adapt to their opponent’s style and strategy. Both fighters have their strengths and weaknesses, and the outcome of the match would likely be determined by their performance in the ring.
It’s important to note that boxing matches can be unpredictable, and any prediction would be purely speculative. The result of the fight between Joe Joyce and Zhilei Zhang can only be determined when they actually face each other in the ring. Boxing fans will have to wait for the actual fight to take place to know the outcome.
Ignore this AI rubbish, it isn’t going to change the world, until they build a robot that can get in the ring and go 12 rounds with a monster like Joyce.
Punch power beats computer power by KO!
Humans are unpredictable so keep your algorithms we want punching combinations!
