EVERYONE enjoyed the recent classic between Naoya Inoue and Nonito Donaire in the World Boxing Super Series bantamweight final. Everyone except Zolani Tete.

In a cruel twist of fate Tete injured his right shoulder just days before he was supposed to meet Donaire in the semi-finals seven months ago. It was a tie many favoured Tete to win. 

Stephon Young took his spot in the last four by default. Fans were robbed of Tete-Donaire but they soon got what they deserved when Donaire, after knocking out Young, then collided with Inoue in the final. One hopes that Tete – still the WBO champion – also gets what he deserves.
