Klitschko vs Chambers Is On!

It's been confirmed. IBF/WBO/IBO heavyweight champion Wladimir "Steelhammer" Klitschko 53-3(37) will defend his titles against top rated American contender and the WBO #1 mandatory challenger "Fast" Eddie Chambers 35-1(18) on March 20th at a yet to be named location in Germany.

Eddie Chambers received his mandatory status after defeating Alexander Dimitrenko in a fight Alexander assumed was just a tune-up fight for himself to face Wladimir Klitschko(he himself was the WBO mandatory). However, Chambers had other plans and defeated Dimitrenko in a remarkable fashion. Much of his win is credited to Chambers new dedication to his fitness regimen in which he came in at a very slim 208 and 1/4th lbs.

Wladimir's last fight was last June when he defeated the WBA champion in recess Ruslan Chagaev easily. This was a late replacement for David Haye who pulled out of the fight at the last minute. Klitschko has reportedly already started training back in November in preparation to the Chambers fight. Stay tuned for more information.


  1. chambers has come a great distance since potevkin, but he is not ready for vladimir. Honestly, nobody is ready for him. what will it take and who will it be? it wont be David Haye, so dont start there people!!! PLEASE. it will take an undergroud boxer unknown who is 6'4 230lbs to get a last minute shot like vitali did with lenox. END OF STORY!

  2. I agree- Chambers will be more difficult than Povetkin who I think will be Wlad's easiest fight.... It will take someone who can take a serious punch with good stamina and has the height, reach, and power to hurt Wladimir-- in other words another guy just like him--- aka his brother
