Villanueva vs Zolane Tete moved to April 22nd

Villanueva title eliminator fight against Zolane Tete was moved to Aprill 22, 2017.

“Schedules change all the time. As fighters, we have to adjust,” said Villanueva when asked if the change poses a concern to his training. He added that the new date isn’t too far ahead, and that his team has been informed about possible changes around two weeks back, “so this doesn’t totally affect my conditioning and sparring,” disclosed Villanueva.

Villanueva is coming off a KO win against Juan Jimenez last September 2016 and looking for a title shot this year.

On the other hand, Zolani Tete is coming off from eight winning streaks including his fight against the former undefeated Paul Butler to win the IBF World super flyweight title in 2015.

Villanueva vs Tete is now included in the undercard of Tyrone Nurse vs Joe Hughes BBBofC British super lightweight title fight at Leicester Arena, Leicester, Leicestershire, United Kingdom on April 22, 2017.
