Tete: “I Am In Good Shape And Ready For The Fight”




WBO bantamweight Championship bout btween Zolani Tete and Mikhail Aloyan, and the cruiserweight title eliminator between Ruslan Fayfer and Andrew Tabiti - will be contested this Saturday at the Ekaterinburg Expo in Ekaterinburg, Russia.

 

All four fighters were in confident mood at Thursday’s press conference in Ekaterinburg, Russia’s fourth-largest city and the cultural center of the Urals.

 

“I am in good shape, ready for the fight,” said South Africa’s Zolani Tete (27-3, 21 KOs), the WBO World Champion.

“As a world champion you must be ready to adjust and adapt, so whatever Aloyan will be bringing I will adjust and take him out.”

 

Russia’s Mikhail Aloyan (4-0) is hoping the home advantage will give him the edge over Tete.

 

“The fact that we are fighting in Ekaterinburg will bring out the best in me. I am ready for the fight.”

 

His countryman Ruslan Fayfer (23-0, 16 KOs) is relying on his greater experience to beat American Andrew ’The Beast’ Tabiti (16-0, 13 KOs).

 

“I have more experience than Tabiti,” said Fayfer. “I am not going to reveal anything, I will show everything during the fight. Everything you should see you will see on Saturday night.”

Tabiti was diametrically opposite in his answer.

“I’m on my A-game,” he said. “I came here for the W, nothing else. I am going to knock this guy out!”
