Boxing In America: Eddie Chambers Outpoints Sam Peter In Los Angeles

The big action last night was the ten round heavyweight showdown between former WBC Champion Samuel Peter and USBA titlist Eddie Chambers at the Nokia Theater in Los Angeles, CA.

Coming into the bout a career heavy 265 pounds, Peter obviously wasn't there to try and outbox the far quicker Chambers and early on the "Nigerian Nightmare" used his aggression to push his rival back.

But once Chambers established that he could take the former world champ's best efforts, he began to slowly but surely pick apart his adversary.

Chambers had little difficulty making Peter miss and countered the far heavier man with enough quick single shots to edge the rounds. As the bout dragged on, Peter became tired and reluctant.

Chambers maintained his slow but steady pace and after finishing the final round well, was awarded a majority decision on scores of 99-91, 96-94 and 95-95.

Chambers improves to 34-1 (18) and will likely fight for a world title this year while Peter loses his second in a row to drop to 30-3 (23).

On the undercard, super feather John Molina, 16-0 (12), stopped Ecuadorian spoiler Carlos Vinan, 8-7-3 (1), at 2:40 of the second round.
