Aloyan, Fayfer Confident of Beating Zolani Tete, Andrew Tabiti

Comosa AG is delighted to bring a spectacular doubleheader to Russia: the Ali Trophy Bantamweight Quarter-Final and WBO World Championship between Zolani Tete and Mikhail Aloyan and the Cruiserweight Quarter-Final between Andrew Tabiti and Ruslan Fayfer.

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

Russia’s Aloyan (4-0) begins a tough quest for the Muhammad Ali Trophy against South Africa’s WBO World Champion 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 bracket was revealed in August by tournament organiser Comosa and threw up a match-up of unbeaten fighters with America's Andrew Tabiti (16-0, 13 KOs) taking on Russian Ruslan Fayfer (23-0, 16 KOs) 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!”

I really enjoy these Russian events, they usually deliver quality fights or controversy. I just watched the presser from Russia and this kid, undefeated Ruslan Fayfer looks pretty big and well built, the American Andre Tabiti might really have to…
