Tete suffered some loses early in his career, but has won eleven straight fights since 2013. These victories include capturing the WBO title along with two successful defenses.
Aloyan is an Olympic Standout looking to make a name for himself in the division. Despite being very green and having only four professional fights, he has entered the tournament with high hopes.
Tete will enjoy advantages in height, reach, power and experience.
Aloyan will have home field advantage, where the entire arena will be cheering for him.
Both men are southpaw fighters that will look to work their game plan.

This fight is targeted to take place in Yekaterinburg, Russia October 13.
