Zsolt Erdei To Have Final Bout on 3/8 in Kecskemet

By Per Ake Persson

Former WBO light heavyweight and WBC cruiserweight champ Zsolt Erdei, 33-1 (18), will return to the ring for the last time on March 8 in Kecskemet (Hungary) for a farewell fight. Erdei will be fighting for the WBO Euro light heavyweight title. Erdei´s last years in boxing have been plagued by long injury layoffs.
 
Erdei, promoted by Universum, won the WBO title back in 2004 and defended it 12 times and also won the WBC cruiserweight crown before dropping down to 175 again.
 
Supervising the WBO Euro title fight in Kecskemet will be another all time Hungarian great in Istvan "Koko" Kovacs.

Disappointing way to end a career - forced out by constant injuries.
