Eddie Chambers

Eddie Chambers picking Fury over Wilder

In an interview with ThaBoxingVoice, heavyweight fighter Eddie Chambers discussed two of the biggest and best heavyweights in the world today in Tyson Fury and WBC champion Deontay Wilder. He started off by saying that it was a fight that he thought had to be made and then went on to pick Fury as the winner should that fight get made.

When asked by the interviewer about the power, he gave an analogy where he compared Fury to Floyd. Floyd Mayweather does not have a big punch, but beats big punchers with ease on a regular basis. Skills pay the bills and at the end of the day there is no single physical attribute, which can make a boxer successful. Continue reading

Eddie Chambers backs Tyson Fury

LONDON (4 NOV) American heavyweight ‘Fast’ Eddie Chambers believes gym mate Tyson Fury will score a repeat victory over bitter rival Derek Chisora on November 29 and put himself right in the mix for a shot at the world heavyweight championship in 2015. Continue reading

Eddie Chambers would welcome the chance to test Anthony Joshua in 2015

Former world heavyweight title challenger ‘Fast’ Eddie Chambers likes what he has seen of fast-rising prospect Anthony Joshua, but fears his run of soft opposition may only serve to hurt him in the future.

The 32-year-old Chambers, once of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, now an honorary member of Team Fury in Bolton, speaks from experience. Back in March 2010 he scaled the heights and challenged Wladimir Klitschko for the world heavyweight championship. He therefore knows a good heavyweight when he sees one.

“At the moment they’re doing a good job of making Joshua look unbeatable,” said Chambers. “The only problem with that is you get to a point where that’s all you’re used to. Then you get in there with somebody who can prove you’re very beatable. Then panic sets in. Then you realise you have no foundations or experience to fall back on. Continue reading

“I’m feeling as good as I’ve ever felt – strong, focused and determined to get back to where I need to be in this sport,” Eddie said.

“I’m going to give you a reason to come and support me because I’m planning on taking this straight to the title, there’s no question about it and we’ll make some history on the way.” Continue reading

Chambers-Fury and Hamed-Kelley II “announced”

Philly heavyweight Fast Eddie Chambers, now part of Team-Fury being trained by Peter Fury, has Tweeted how he will face Tyson Fury’s cousin Hughie on the July rematch card between Tyson and Derek Chisora.

However, this may simply be a case of Chambers showing his sense of humour, and yesterday, when the Tweet appeared, was of course April Fool’s day!

It certainly would be an odd move on the part of the still inexperienced Fury to get in there with as talented and experienced a boxer as Chambers.

Another fighter who had fun on social media yesterday was Kevin Kelley, with the former featherweight star announcing on Facebook that he had signed to face Naseem Hamed in a rematch! Still, as crazy as this rematch of a great fight would be, fans would sure watch it! But what weight would it take place at in light of Naz’ ever ballooning poundage!?

Eddie Chambers and the resurrection

Having been told a while ago that Eddie Chambers was thinking of joining Team Fury, I thought “Astute of him. Where has he been?”. Here was a Heavyweight fighter with a record of W36 L4 who had been beaten last year in his only fight of 2013, after a bad decision to move down to Cruiserweight. Were the gears grinding down on “Fast Eddie’s” career? At 31, and seemingly losing love for the sport, Eddie was squandering the talent he had been given.

I had had a conversation with Peter Fury a few months ago after Chambers had been part of the Fury training camp for the, ultimately, disastrous Haye debacle. He was very impressed with Eddie’s skills and attitude. But you don’t need Peter to tell you Eddie can box/fight/win. Even a layman can see that Eddie Chambers has been in with the very best the sport has had to offer over the past 6 years: Wladimir Klitschko, Alexander Dimitrenko, Alexander Povetkin, Tomasz Adamek, Samuel Peter.

Eddie Chambers Statement

chambers343This is an open letter to the fans who support me as well to those who don’t.

First off, I want to congratulate my opponent Thabiso Mchunu of South Africa for his victory against me. I do not want to in any form or fashion diminish that win by making excuses about my performance in the ring. I did my best that I could to make the fight. To win the fight. Losing this decision woke up my spirit to compete again and I will continue to pursue my career as a Cruiserweight.

I felt fine throughout the bout. The weight loss was not a factor in my performance. I did not expect Mchunu to fight such a defensive, awkward fight. I was trying to follow instructions from my trainer, James Ali Bashir. It was very difficult to do as I am a counter puncher as well who was forced into being the aggressor. I felt that if I did not doing something to make the fight, there would have been no action during the fight. I am not that kinda guy who is going to lay around crying over spilled milk.
