2008-04-26 Zsolt Erdei w pts 12 DeAndrey Abron, Freiberger Arena, Dresden, Germany - WBO. Referee: Roberto Ramirez. Scorecards: 119-109, 119-109, 119-109.

Due to defend his WBO title against Yuriy Barashian at the Borderland Hall, Magedeburg on 10 January 2009, Erdei went ahead with the contest despite the Armenian coming in over the weight, winning on points over 12 rounds.

On 22 August 2009 at the SYMA Sport & Leisure Centre, Budapest, Hungary, Juergen Braehmer stopped Aleksy Kuziemski in the 11th round to win the vacant WBO ‘interim’ title and was handed full title status on 13 November 2009, eight days before Erdei challenged Giacobbe Fragomeni for the WBC cruiser title.
