Boxing Result

Klitschko KOs Chambers

By Karl Freitag

IBF/WBO/IBO heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko (54-3, 48 KOs) scored a spectacular twelfth round KO over “Fast Eddie” Chambers (35-2, 18 KOs) on Saturday night before 51,000 at the Esprit Arena in Düsseldorf, Germany. Klitschko was dominant from the beginning. After Chambers body slammed Klitschko in round two, Klitschko rocked Chambers with a right hand. Punches were far and few between from Chambers who often went into “Clottey mode” as the champion broke him down.

Klitschko finally found the KO formula with just seconds left in the bout. An inspired Wladimir went after Chambers with everything he had in round twelve after trainer Emanuel Steward admonished him for not being more aggressive saying “You do not need to have another bullshit decision.” Wladimir ended it with a brutal left hook that sent Chambers falling back into the ropes then pitching sideways onto his face. Referee Geno Rodriquez didn’t bother to count as Chambers lay motionless draped over the bottom rope. Official time was 2:55.
