Zsolt Erdei was rarely troubled as he made the 10th defence of his WBO light-heavyweight title against America's DeAndrey Abron.

The Hungarian (29-0, 17 KOs) landed his left jab from the start and proved too quick 35-year-old Abron.

All three judges scored it 119-109, and the lacklustre bout drew jeers from the crowd in Dresden, Germany.

"I didn't really risk much," said Erdei, 33. "I have a feeling bigger fights are still to come."

Erdei has been criticised for his unwillingness to leave Germany and face the division's top boxers.

On the same card, Ukraine's Sergiy Dzinziruk (35-0, 22 KOs) retained his WBO super-welterweight belt with a decision against Czech Lukas Konecny (36-3, 18 KOs).
