Zsolt Erdei Wants Chad Dawson if Pascal-Hopkins Happens

By Rick Reeno

BoxingScene.com was advised by promoter Lou DiBella that unbeaten former two division champion Zsolt Erdei (32-0, 17KOs) is targeting Chad Dawson (29-1, 17KOs) for his next fight. Dawson has a contracted rematch with WBC/IBO light heavyweight champion Jean Pascal. But, the WBC ordered Pascal to have an immediate rematch with Bernard Hopkins. If Dawson is paid to step aside, and Pascal-Hopkins II moves forward, then Erdei wants to fight Dawson next.

"If Dawson can't get the rematch with Pascal, then Erdei wants to fight him next. I think it would be a great fight and one that I think Erdei can win," DiBella told BoxingScene.com.
