Tavoris Cloud will fight popular Hungarian Zsolt Erdei (33-0-0, 18 KOs) n a battle of undefeated champions. On the line will be Cloud's IBF light heavyweight title and, perhaps, the 'real' lineal light heavyweight title which Erdei can lay claim to. Erdei won the WBO light heavyweight title and the distinction of "lineal" light heavyweight champion by winning a unanimous decision over Julio César González, January 17, 2004. Gonzalez had won the title three months earlier by outpointing long-reigning champion, Dariusz Michalczewski.
Erdei is the man who beat the man who beat 'The Man' - Dariusz Michalczewski.
This bout will showcase a contrast of styles - boxer versus slugger. Cloud is an offensive fighter with good power who likes to pressure his opponents while Erdei is a crafty 'hit-and move' boxer with excellent echnique.
Two undefeated champions with contrasting styles... It doesn't get much better than this.
