With only four professional fights under his belt, Russian bantamweight Mikhail Aloyan has by far the least experience of any of the participants in the World Boxing Super Series tournaments, be it the two that took place in the recently competed first season or the three just getting started in the second season.
Aloyan's World Boxing Super series opener will come in the quarterfinals when he challenges highly regarded world titleholder and big puncher Zolani Tete (27-3, 21 KOs).
It's a big opportunity to fight in the WBSS, and my goal is to win the (Muhammad Ali) trophy."
The Tete-Aloyan winner will advance to the semifinals to face the winner of the quarterfinal fight between world titleholder Ryan Burnett (19-0, 9 KOs) and former four-division world titleholder Nonito Donaire (38-5, 24 KOs), 35, who meet on Nov. 3 on Burnett's turf in Glasgow, Scotland.
