Zhang perfects his boxing skills in US

CHINA'S super-heavyweight Olympic silver medallist Zhang Zhilei is working with Hall of Fame trainer Lou Duva as part of his preparations for the 2012 London Games.

The 26-year-old amateur, a bronze medalist at the 2007 world championships, is already in the US working with Duva, who has handled more than a dozen world champions including heavyweight Evander Holyfield. "My dream is to win the title at the London Olympics," the 2.01m Zhang, who lost to Italian Roberto Cammarelle in the final in Beijing last year, said. "These trainers are very dedicated to their professions. They have been training me mainly on my awareness and the tactics to deal with different types of opponents. I feel I have improved a lot."
