wladimir Klitschko vs Eddie Chambers march 20th


Recommended Posts

by James Slater - It's on. Official WBO heavyweight title challenger "Fast" Eddie Chambers will fight Ring magazine, WBO and IBF heavyweight king Wladimir Klitschko at a site still to be determined in Germany on March 20th, so reports the always reliable Fight News.com. Chambers won his official position as the WBO heavyweight #1 when he went to Germany to pound out a highly impressive points win over the much bigger, and unbeaten Alexander Dimitrenko. Now, after having been made to wait longer than expected for his big chance due to a hand (or was it a shoulder) injury, the 27-year-old at last has the green light to face "Dr Steel Hammer."


The 35-1(18) Chambers of Philadelphia admits he let himself down when losing on points to Russia's Alexander Povetkin back in January of 2008, but he has since lost a fair amount of weight, has grown new confidence with his five wins post-Povetkin - culminating with the July win over Dimitrenko. With his pure boxing skill and his fast hands, Chambers cannot be written off as a no-hoper against Wladimir..


One thing that may play into the challenger's hands is the inactivity the champion has had recently. Not having fought since his June 2008 TKO win over Ruslan Chagaev, could the 33-year-old champ, 53-3(37) be suffering from a little ring-rust come March 20th? It' s a possibility. And even though Chambers only fought a month more recently than Klitschko, he had been very active in the months before the Dimitrenko win.


Chambers, who weighed a much more acceptable 208-pounds for his biggest win to date, will no doubt be ecstatic at the news that has come out today. March 20th is still a while away, but "Fast" Eddie can at last begin to look towards his day of destiny!
