Perez-Decarie replaces Erdei-Chilemba

On Wednesday, it was announced that the Isaac Chilemba-Zsolt Erdei fight, scheduled to open up the HBO Boxing After Dark telecast live from the MGM Grand Theater at Foxwoods Resort Casino in Mashantucket, CT, on September 29, had been called off after Erdei suffered two broken ribs in sparring. The 10-round light heavyweight bout was one of the most highly anticipated bouts on the card, which made the cancellation that much more disappointing. Fortunately though, Lou DiBella, President of DiBella Entertainment, was able to find a replacement that has many boxing insiders and fans alike quite intrigued as welterweight contenders Alex Perez (16-0, 9KO’s) and Antonin Decarie (26-1, 7KO’s) are set to square off in a 10-round match. The bout will be for Decarie’s WBC International welterweight title.
