Eddie Chambers: “I had no idea how great Klitschko was until I entered the ring with him”


Former heavyweight title contender Eddie Chambers shared his memories of a fight with Wladimir Klitschko, to whom he lost by knockout in 2010.

“The training camp before the fight with Wladimir Klitschko was great, I worked hard. I only regret not having enough sparring, although they were good. Malik Scott came to camp late. It was cool to be faced with a level of boxing like his, but I felt like I needed a little better quality sparring. I wanted to be challenged in sparring. I always strived for that.

Many fighters need to beat other guys to feel confident. I always had confidence problems before a fight. I have always been not the most confident person in the world, but I believed in my abilities. So I could do my job even if I wasn’t sure of myself or the situation. I’ve done this a million times before. But if the sparring partners created such serious challenges for me that every day I would practically fight in the gym, it would make me better prepare for the fight.

In addition, I had no idea how great Vladimir Klitschko was until I entered the ring with him. You can’t appreciate what these guys are capable of until you see for yourself, “Eddie Chambers said in an interview with The Doctor Uz Podcast.
