The road to Lafayette

Prograis-Relikh:
October 7 in Yokohama, Japan Kiryl Relikh defeated Russia?s Eduard Troyanovsky by a unanimous decision, with all judges scoring it 115-113 in

favour of ?Mad Bee?, to reach the semi-final, while tournament No.1 seed Regis Prograis advanced in more dominant fashion on October 27 in New Orleans, also via a unanimous decision, over the UK?s Terry Flanagan. The judges had it 119-108, 118-109, 117-110 for ?Rougarou?.

?I know Relikh is a tough and strong fighter and I never look over an opponent but I have no doubt in my mind that I will win,? said Prograis. ?I?m looking very much to the semi-final and the quest for the Ali Trophy,? said WBA Champion Relikh. ?When I fight the fans will get the money?s worth. I predict just like all of my fights a win for me.?

Donaire-Tete:
October 13 in Ekaterinburg, Russia Zolani Tete outpointed Russia?s Mikhail Aloyan with scores of 114-110, 114-111 and 114-111 for the ?Last Born?, when he booked his place in the semi-final. Nonito ?The Filipino Flash? Donaire, a four-division world champion, won his quarter-final on November 3 in Glasgow, Scotland as No.1 seed, Northern Ireland?s Ryan Burnett, was forced to retire from the fight after four rounds of action due to a lower back injury.

?Tete is a formidable opponent and we have been preparing since the last fight. I?m even more excited with it being in the U.S. and won?t waste the opportunity to show the crowd what we?ve been working on,? said Donaire, WBA titleholder.

?Nonito Donaire is a true champion and has had a lot of success against my fellow countrymen like Moruti Mthalane and Jeffrey Mathebula in the past, but that stops here,? said WBO Champion Tete. ?I respect Nonito, but I have a lot of faith in my own boxing ability and I will come out victorious when we fight.?

Fans in the U.S. and Canada can watch all the Ali Trophy semi-finals LIVE, exclusively on DAZN.
