Klitschko, Chambers in Düsseldorf

Jan Ovelgoenne

IBF/WBO/IBO world heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko and his opponent Eddie Chambers faced off at a press conference yesterday at ESPRIT arena Düsseldorf, where their fight will take place on March 20.

Klitschko: “This is a great arena and the idea of more than 50.000 spectator gives me additional motivation. After a break of 7 months I am really looking forward to stepping back into the ring. Chambers is a very strong and quick opponent; therefore he is the number 1 in the WBO ranking. But for me, there is no doubt that I will win the fight and keep my belts.”

Chambers: “Sure, Klitschko is the favorite. But I will surprise him and shock the boxing world when I take his titles to the US on March 20.”

For the second time Klitschko will be fighting in a soccer stadium. The ESPRIT arena Düsseldorf, homefield of Fortuna Düsseldorf, will have a capacity of 51,000 seats on fight night. In his last fight, Champion Klitschko beat Ruslan Chagaev at Schalke Arena in front of 61,000 spectators in June 2009.

Tickets for the highly anticipated fight are available at or via phone +49-1805-570070. Price start at 20 Euro. VIP packages cost 350 Euro or 600 Euro.
