Froch-Johnson: Block of Tickets For Zsolt Erdei Fans

NEW YORK, NY – It was impossible not to notice the throngs of Hungarian fans who made the trek to Atlantic City to watch their national hero and unbeaten former two-time world champion, Zsolt Erdei, when he fought on the undercard of middleweight champ Sergio Martinez's second-round knockout of Paul Williams last November at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City. Erdei drew a large – and noisy – contingent of fans who cheered, chanted, and sang him on throughout his convincing eight-round decision win over veteran Samson Onyango.

Now, Erdei (32-0, 17 KOs) is set to return to the ring, and Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, on June 4 when he battles former world titlist Byron Mitchell (28-7-1, 21 KOs) on the undercard of the SHOWTIME Super Super Six World Boxing Classic semifinals between Carl Froch and Glen Johnson at the Adrian Phillips Ballroom inside the famed building in the heart of the AC strip.

With Erdei scheduled to return to the ring, DiBella Entertainment has secured a special block of tickets, solely for Erdei's loud and proud contingent of fans, that will be available for purchase online through Ticketmaster.com.

Those looking to purchase tickets should visit Ticketmaster.com, search "Boardwalk Hall", click on “Carl Froch vs Glen Johnson - WBC Super Middleweight Championship Tickets” and then search for tickets under the header “Fans of Zsolt Erdei”. Fans looking purchase tickets from this block must use the password ZSOLT in the appropriate box for the purchase to go through.

“Zsolt is a Hungarian megastar and one of the best European fighters of the past decade,” said Lou DiBella, President of DiBella Entertainment."He needs to fight and stay busy for his enormous Hungarian fan-base here in the states. He will be on the international broadcast, so the home-town crowd can watch him there too. The last time he fought in Atlantic City, he brought a very passionate and devoted crowd. It was really impressive to see.”

Erdei, who held the WBO light heavyweight title from 2004 to 2009, moved up in weight in 2009 to win the WBC cruiserweight title. He has now returned to the light heavyweight division for yet another run at that championship.

Erdei is in line to be the mandatory challanger for the winner of the May 21 bout between current WBO champion Jurgen Brahmer and Nathan Cleverly.
