Brian Vera will replace Daniel Edouard as Kelly Pavlik's opponent for his Nov. 13 bout at Dallas Cowboys Stadium, according to ESPN.com.

The fight will be at 164 pounds.

Vera (17-5, 11 KOs), a native of Austin, Texas, has lost four of his last five fights. Edouard was dropped after concerns were raised about a blood pressure problem.

Pavlik (36-2, 32 KOs) has not fought since losing his middleweight titles to Sergio Martinez in April.
