With Andre Ward looking for an opponent for his first fight in over a year, former light heavyweight and cruiserweight world champion Zsolt Erdei (33-1, 18 KOs) is offering to come down to super middleweight to take the fight.
“When I decided to sign with Lou DiBella and fight in America, it was for me to face DBE the best boxers in the world. Ward is considered to be the best boxer in the world above the middleweight division and he is a great champion. I respect his skills very much, but I know that I have what it takes to get the job done and shock the world. A win over Ward makes me a superstar in America and that is my ultimate goal,” said the 39-year-old Erdei who lost for the first time in his pro career by split decision to Denis Grachev in March.
