Wladimir Klitschko vs. Eddie Chambers March 20 in Germany!
By FightFan News Wire (26-Jan-2010)
IBF, WBO, and IBO world heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko will defend his titles against top rated challenger Eddie Chambers at the ESPRIT arena in Düsseldorf, Germany, on March 20.
‘Fast’ Eddie Chambers is currently the WBO’s No. 1 contender and the official challenger to Klitschko’s title. On fight night, the arena, homefield of 2. Bundesleague Club Fortuna Düsseldorf, will have a capacity of 51.000 seats. It is Klitschko’s first fight since his title defense against Ruslan Chagaev in June 2009 in front of 61.000 spectators in Gelsenkirchen, Germany (TKO 9). With his victory over Chagaev the 33-year old became the “Ring-Champion”, the unofficial world champion title by the legendary boxing magazine “The Ring”. Klitschko’s record is 53 wins (47 KOs) and 3 defeats.
Wladimir Klitschko: “I am really happy to be back in the ring. I have only good memories of Düsseldorf, my only fight there I won by TKO. This fight is going to take place in a giant stadium. The audience of over 50.000 spectators is a further motivation for me. Chambers is currently the best heavyweight boxer from the US.”
27-year old “Fast” Eddie Chambers lives in Philadelphia, USA. In July 2009, the 1,85m tall Chambers won the world champion final against odds-on favourite Alexander Dimitrenko (Universum Boxing). A few months before, he had beaten previous WBC champion Samuel Peter. Eddie Chambers has a record of 35 victories (18 KOs) and one defeat.
Eddie Chambers: “I worked very hard for this championship fight. In the way I surprised Dimitrenko I am going to take Klitschko by surprise and will collect his three belts. This is a great chance. He is the favourite, but I am confident and take his belts to the US.”
Bernd Bönte, Managing Director of the Klitschko Management Group: „The Esprit arena is a state-of-the-art stadium and we are looking forward to presenting another boxing event in a football stadium. Together with the officials of the arena, who are very supportive in any way, we are planning a great event with well-priced tickets and expect to have a sold out venue.”
The ticket sale starts on January 28th at 3 p.m. German time exclusively on www.eventim.de. From January 29th tickets will also be available under +49-(0)1805-12 13 14 and at box offices nationwide. Ticket prices start at € 20.
In Germany, the fight Klitschko vs. Chambers will be broadcasted live and exclusively on RTL. North American broadcast information has yet to be determined.
