Duddy-Coleman date change, Zsolt Erdei Married

NEW YORK CITY (July 13, 2005) – Unbeaten Irish middleweight John Duddy’s (10-0, 9 KOs) next fight, versus veteran Patrick Coleman (29-11, 20 KOs), has been moved back two days to July 22 and moved from 115 Bourbon St. in Chicago to Rosemont, Illinois. Duddy-Coleman will fight in an eight-round co-feature on the Bobby Hitz-promoted ESPN2 Friday Night Fights show..

Zsolt Erdei has married

The „Firebird“ is now a husband. WBO light heavyweight champion Zsolt Erdei has married his beautiful Austrian girlfriend Arabella this week in Hungary.

Erdei recently canceled his title defense scheduled for July 2nd at Hamburg’s Color Line Arena because of a gastroenteric influenza at the morning of his fight. The Universum Box-Promotion event continued without him, now headlined by undefeated heavyweight prospect Alexander Dimitrenko.

After recovering from his illnes Erdei went back home to Hungary and later started to prepare his wedding.

His fight against Frenchman Mehdi Sahnoune will be postponed to a date later this year. It would be Erdei’s fourth defense of the WBO crown since the 31-year-old Hungarian won the title from Julio Cesar Gonzalez in January 2004. Erdei, 22-0 (13), is the successor of Dariusz Michalczewski as he beat the man who beat Michalczewski and now holds the crown that the recently retired “Tiger” was owning for more than nine years.
