Boxer Zhang Zhilei scored an impressive victory in his fourth professional fight on June 6 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.
The heavyweight from Zhoukou, Henan province won a four-round unanimous decision over Glen Thomas (1-4) that saw him register knockdowns in the first, third and fourth rounds.
Zhang (4-0) fought on the undercard of the Miguel Cotto-Daniel Geale bout, in which Cotto defended his WBC middleweight crown with a fourth-round technical knockout of the Australian challenger.
Zhang (6-6, 262) was the silver medalist in the super heavyweight division at the 2008 Beijing Summer Olympics.
