12th March 2016 - 7th round TKO over Jose Santos Gonzalez

Zolani Tete is a skilled super-flyweight southpaw and former IBF World Champion.

The South African has become a popular household name in Britain, and first announced himself to the BoxNation crowd when he tore up the script in Liverpool as he beat then undefeated Paul Butler to defend his IBF World Super-Flyweight Title.

Since then, Tete returned to his homeland to secure wins over Diuhl Olguin and Jether Oliva after vacating the IBF Title.

The popular and rangy super-flyweight inked a promotional deal with Frank Warren in December 2015, and followed up with his seventh consecutive win as he claimed the IBF International Bantamweight Title with an seventh round TKO win over Jose Santos Gonzalez.

Tete's next outing is on a big Liverpool bill live on BoxNation on Saturday June 4th as he defends his IBF International Title for the first time and looks to break the IBF's top 10 ratings at the weight.
