“Chambers is an extraordinary boxer,” said IBF/WBO/IBO heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko following his twelfth round KO win over mandatory challenger Eddie Chambers. “He is very, very quick and preemptive. In the last rounds I gave everything and I am very happy about the result. To me Chambers gave up mentally after round six. It’s hard to hit somebody who is very passive and tries not to be knocked out.”
Eddie Chambers stated, “I knew about his quick right hand but I couldn’t do anything against it. When I lifted him up I wanted to take him out of his fight plan. I can’t remember the knockout.” After the press conference, Chambers had to go to hospital. The fight took place at the sold-out ESPRIT arena in Dusseldorf, Germany. The attendance was 51,000.
