jon dog- byrd had to lose 30-40 pounds to go back, chambers 5-10 pounds. if chambers had spent 1hr in a sauna before the adamek weigh in he would have made cruiserweight already, not a big issue i would think

Has everyone forgot about Chris Byrd? Moving weight divisions only works in one direction. Eddie doesn’t breach the top 10 at CW in my opinion

Good move. Main Events will get him opportunities and he’s now in a division where he should’ve been all along.

Kudos to Eddie for making such decision. I really think he really belongs to that decision. There he has a chance of shoving his expertise and power. I hope he gets a title shot soon.

i always suspected that Chambers was not a viable heavyweight contender. despite the claims of some “experts” and particularly not while the Klitschkos remained sheriffs of Heavytown. the move to cruiser is smart and realistic. it will enhance Chambers’ fighting style and his punches may also experience a proportionate increase in potency. if title-straps are Eddie’s professional goal, he may very well collect and retain more than one at cruiser.

That’s a great move for Chambers if he can bulk up after weigh in, he should have a dominant size advantage as well. Manimal has a good point–a tourney would be good

Hes been a cruiserweight fighting as a heavy for some time now. This will be great for him. Hes actually smaller than a lot of the cruiserweighst out there.

Why not. eddie will not win anything at heavyweight and might brighten up the cruis division

eddiie will rule CW if the big dogs dont duck him. eddie’s too skilled for anyone there

This will be interesting to watch. Has been a pretty good heavy. If he can come down with stamina nd retain his power this will definitely be something to watch at Cruiser. And there are some pretty decent fights waiting for him at that weight too. I like it. Interesting!
