Zolani Tete has set his sights on the winner of Lee Haskins and Stuart Hall’s mandated World Title fight.
The 28 year old once again starred on BoxNation screens to retain his IBF International Bantamweight Title on Saturday night with a seventh round stoppage over Victor Ruiz.
“He felt my punches! I think Ruiz is a good fighter, he’s the past now I’m looking forward to my next fight.”
Speaking to iFL TV after the fight, Tete switched his intentions to the winner of the all British World Title fight: “I would love to fight the winner.”
With Haskins v Hall yet to be confirmed, the ‘Scouse African’ is open to pursue other World Title avenues should a Title shot present itself.
“If the opportunity comes to fight McDonnell, I would not hesitate,” explained Tete.
‘Last Born’ previously held the IBF World Title down at Super-Flyweight and despite currently campaigning up at Bantamweight, Tete is open to moving back down.
“I can make Super-Flyweight comfortably. Inoue doesn’t have openings, if the opportunity comes. I’ve been to Japan once and I can go there again and take what’s mine!”
