Zhang Ze Hao is from Jiaozuo, in the Henan province of China. A victim of bullying in middle school, he began training in taekwondo to be able to defend himself, and later added boxing, sanda, and Brazilian jiu-jitsu as well. Through martial arts, Zhang gained confidence in himself, and it eventually led him to a professional career in the cage.
Driven by his dream to be the best in the world, Zhang recognizes the huge opportunity that ONE Championship has presented him, and sought to make a huge statement in his promotional debut with a TKO win. That he did, as he overcame a tremendous assault by fellow countryman Li Cheng Chao in the opening stanza to make a huge comeback. He then followed that up with another TKO of Indian striker Bala Shetty.
