Tonight at the cavernous Esprit Arena in Dusseldorf, longtime contender Eddie Chambers finally gets a shot at the heavyweight championship of the world. Unfortunately for the American from Pennsylvania, that means going up against the imposing Wladimir Klitschko.
Klitschko's IBF, WBO and IBO crowns will be on the line and Chambers will have to mount the performance of his life in order to walk out of the Esprit Arena as world champion.
At 6 foot 6 inches in height, weighing a well-conditioned 240 pounds with an '81 inch reach and possessing amazing coordination, Klitschko, 53-3 (47), excels at making opponents dance to his tune, which is fighting at a moderate pace at the end of his sharp jab.
Chambers, 35-1 (18), has an excellent boxing skills set, as demonstrated by his recent majority decision victory in Germany against previously undefeated Alexander Dimitrenko but Klitschko is a much higher hurdle to scale.
Both fighters like to box from the outside at a measured pace and that isn't good news for Chambers as he'll unlikely be able to outwork Klitschko or put the Ukrainian giant under heavy inside pressure.
Klitschko brings an 11 bout win streak over the past six years into tonight's clash and it will be a massive upset if Chambers is to reverse that trend.
On the undercard, heavyweight Johnathon Banks, 23-1 (16), faces Travis Walker, 34-3-1 (28), for the vacant NABF title.
