Beibut Shumenov targeting Zsolt Erdei

Beibut2_medium Beibut Shumenov's team put out a press release today that says he's targeting WBO light heavyweight titlist Zsolt Erdei after his upcoming fight:

Light heavyweight sensation Beibut Shumenov, arguably the most ambitious fighter in the world, has targeted WBO champion Zsolt "Firebird" Erdei after his May 9th IBA World title fight against former IBF super middleweight champion Alejandro "Naco" Berrio, outdoors at Khadjimukan Stadium in Shumenov’s hometown of Chimkent, Kazakhstan.

Shumenov (7-0, 5 KO) really is the most ambitious young fighter out there. He's taking on anyone he can and looking to rise exceptionally fast. His upcoming fight with Berrio is no joke. If you've never heard of "Naco," he's got a career record of 28-5 with 27 knockouts. In all five of his losses, he's been stopped. Basically you're guaranteed action and a stoppage with Berrio.

One look at Shumenov's record shows you that the ambition thing isn't just hype. He's already taken on vets like Epi Mendoza, Lavell Finger, Donnell Wiggins and Montell Griffin. Berrio is another step up the ladder, and Erdei is more or less the top of the ladder all things considered.
