Klitschko KO's Chambers

Wladimir Klitschko easily defended his titles today with a dominant 12th round KO victory over #1 ranked WBO mandatory Eddie Chambers. Wladimir was in control the whole fight.

Chambers did try to get Wladimir riled up by resorting to picking up Wladimir when Wladimir clinched early in the fight. I think this only helped Wladimir out. The anger is what he needed I think he was taking Chambers lightly until then, and increased pressure for the remainder of the fight.

Wladimir had Chambers in trouble in the 2nd when he landed a right but was unable to finish Chambers. He continued to dominate with the jab and was winning each round easily.

The last couple rounds Eddie was in survival mode and was just running.

Wladimir's trainer Emanuel Steward told him coming into the 12th round that he needs to knock him out. With only 13 seconds left in the 12th, that's exactly what Wladimir did with a beautiful left hook to the jaw that send Eddie to the canvas. Chambers did not get up for a long time afterwords but appears to be ok.

With this win Wladimir now improves to 54(48)-3-0 while Chambers falls to 35(18)-2(1)-0.

I will ad more detail on this fight later and post the full fight video. Until then here's just a nice short video of the amazing final knockout. Enjoy!
