Zsolt Erdei Not Retiring, Plans To Fight Says Adviser

By Per Ake Persson

Editor's Note: Erdei's adviser, Greg Leon, has informed BoxingScene.com that Erdei is NOT planning to retire from boxing and the reports circulating in Hungary are not accurate. Erdei is scheduled to resume training in a few weeks, says Leon.

According to Hungarian outlet monokli, former WBO light heavyweight and WBC cruiserweight champ Zsolt Erdei has announced his retirement. Erdei, 38-years-old, goes out undefeated at 33-0 and stopped Byron Mitchell in his last outing. Zsolt was then to fight Isaac Chilemba on September 29 but was forced to withdraw with an injury - and it wasn't the first time he withdrew from a fight due to an injury - and he has called it a day.
 
Erdei was a big star in the amateurs and turned pro with Germany's Universum in 2000. He became WBO light heavyweight champ in 2004 with a points win over Julio Gonzales but then he was a very lucky man - especially the second time - to get past Argentinian Hugo Hernan Garay twice.

Erdei, a class act inside and outside of the ring, never became a big star in Germany and when the contract with Universum expired in 2010 - Zsolt left for the United States and signed a contract with DiBella Entertainment but was never able to get a major fight - mainly due to injuries.

He is better off retiring. If you aren't willing to be the best, you mines well not try at all. This dudes boxing career was and will always be pathetic.
