If someone would have told Universum-hope Alexander “Sasha” Dimitrenko that Eddie Chambers lives up to his nickname “Fast”, he probably would have taken another fight. However, he did choose to face the 28-year-old American in a WBO heavyweight title eliminator for the right to face unified champion Wladimir Klitschko. Going into the fight, the protégé of world-class coach Fritz Sdunek was very confident. At the end, he was punished by “Fast” Eddie Chambers. Over twelve rounds, Dimitrenko was never able to get into his rhythm and was unable to get past the outstanding defence and upper-body movement by Chambers while getting hit by clean shots all the time. When the fighters walked to the ring, Chambers was booed but when the final bell rung, the crowd cheered for the 28-year-old Philly fighter. However, when the verdict was announced, there was a short moment of disbelief as one judge scored the one-sided affair 113-113, a draw. However, his two colleagues saved the honor of their guild, having it 116-111 and 117-109 for the deserving American.
