Tete,Aloyan, Tabiti And Fayfer Work Out In Ekaterinburg

A World Boxing Super Series doubleheader takes place in Russia this Saturday when the Bantamweight Quarter-Final between WBO champ Zolani Tete and Mikhail Aloyan and the Cruiserweight Quarter-Final between Andrew Tabiti and Ruslan Fayfer takes place.


All four fighters performed their media workouts today ahead of their quarter-finals that will take place at the Ekaterinburg Expo in Ekaterinburg.


Russia’s Aloyan (4-0) begins a tough quest for the Muhammad Ali Trophy against South Africa’s WBO titleholder Zolani Tete (27-3, 21 KOs).


“I have watched Tete’s fights, but I do not want to let him distract me too much. I’d better concentrate on my own goals,” said Aloyan. “I know it’s only my fifth fight as a professional, but I have huge experience as an amateur and that helps me a lot. It’s a big opportunity to fight in the WBSS, and my goal is to win the trophy.”


The cruiserweight line upt was revealed in August by tournament organiser Comosa and threw up a match of unbeaten fighters with America’s Andrew Tabiti, 16-0-(13), taking on Russian Ruslan Fayfer, 23-0-(16), in the Season II cruiserweight opener.


“Tabiti has no loses, he has good footwork and defense, he has a lot of experience,” said Fayfer of the Floyd Mayweather Snr trained boxer.


“But we have our plan and we are working to realise it in the ring. I don’t pay attention to his KO statistics.”


“My goal is to make sure Season II of the WBSS will be as awesome as the first in the cruiserweight edition, and I want to win the Muhammad Ali Trophy!”
