Klitschko-Chambers Presser

Jan Sanders/Goossen Tutor Promotions

IBF/WBO/IBO heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko faces off with challenger Eddie Chambers during a prefight press conference in advance of their showdown Saturday in Dusseldorf, Germany. “I want to shock the world,” Chambers told the press. Klitschko, who has previously sparred with Chambers stated, “I’ve already tested him and I think the world title will remain in the Klitschko family.” The fight will take place at the 51,000-seat Esprit Arena and be televised in 110 countries worldwide. HBO, which has Klitschko under contract, sadly had no interest in televising the champion’s heavyweight title defense in the USA even though Chambers hails from Philadelphia.
