Former heavyweight title challenger ‘Fast’ Eddie Chambers (38-4, 20 KOs) will be back in action on Saturday night at Leeds Town Hall in Leeds, England. Chambers takes on journeyman Carl Baker (10-7, 7 KOs) in an eight rounder.
“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.”
“There is no question about it, for someone like myself , who got there without the best of everything – now getting the best of everything there is no excuse for me,” said Eddie, who is now trained by Phil Fury. “That’s the only place I belong, at world level and if I can’t make it there then what’s the point – I don’t want to give anyone the satisfaction to be able to say he gave up, he can’t do this, he can’t do that and he’s not going to be this and he’s not going to be that.
“They’ve said it before and I’ll continue to show them otherwise – it’s something that motivates me and it motivates all of us because we use the negativity as fuel to push us further and to strive to prove them wrong.”
Chambers fights over 8 x 3minute rounds on the undercard to the MaxiNutrition Knockout semi finals where newly crowned British light heavyweight champion and Leeds fighter Bob Ajisafe takes on Swanley’s Southern Area champion Leon Senior and English champion and Newcastle fighter Travis Dickinson makes the first defense of his title against Preston’s Central Area champion Matty Clarkson.
