WBO world bantamweight champion Zolani ‘Last Born’ Tete is hooking up with trainer Floyd Mayweather Senior and will now be based in Las Vegas.

The move, an attempt to freshen up the South African and keep him learning ahead of some potentially tricky fights in the World Boxing Super Series’ (WBSS) bantamweight tournament, was confirmed by Tete’s manager Mlandeli Tengimfene after the 30-year-old outpointed Mikhail Aloyan in Russia on Saturday (October 13).

“Zolani was supposed to have joined the top-of-the-range Mayweather Gym of Floyd Junior in Las Vegas before the fight against Mikhail,” Tengimfene told Sowetan Live. “But I wanted somebody who has amateur background, so I put the move on ice.”
