Wladimir Klitschko Knocks Out Eddie Chambers
Wladimir Klitschko Knocks Out Eddie Chambers In The 12th Round
This fight had it's moments for both boxers, but it was mainly dominated by Wladimir in every round. Eddie Chambers started the first round confidently, trying hard to be awkward, using good defensive skills, and trying to slip that superb jab of Wladimir's. But the jab was too much for Chambers, and in the second round Chambers was caught by a one-two combination that made his legs buckle. It looked as if the fight could be over, but Chambers recovered well considering how cleanly he was caught, and he went on to finish the round, throwing some fast punches back at Wladimir.
Eddie Chambers seemed as though he wanted to wrestle with Wladimir once the pair clinched, and show his strength. He picked Wladimir up off his feet at one point, carrying him around for a short period. Wladimir done a good job of pushing down with all his weight on Chambers, knowing that it would tire him out that little bit more.
In the third round Chambers was caught with the same one-two punch combination that seen him rocked again, but he managed to shrug it off, use his defensive skills, and throw his own punches back, with most of them falling short.
Through out the rest of the rounds Wladimirs jab, straight right hand, and sheer range were too much, and Chambers was starting to tire. Chambers couldn't get on the inside because everytime he tried, Wladimir would throw the jab and jump back, creating too much space for Chambers to get inside. Eddie Chambers defense was good, but he used it too much. Chambers was inviting Wladimir in, as if to try and get Wladimir to punch so that it would create an opening for Chambers to get his own shots off, but Wladimir was too smart. He was always ready to jump back after letting his jab go, always just out of range for any of Chambers counter punches to land or be effective. In a way the style in which Eddie Chambers fought reminded me of what Kevin "Kingpin" Johnson done against Vitali, fight in defensive mode for the whole fight.
In the tenth round it looked as if the fight could be stopped because there wasn't much coming back from Chambers, he was tired and very frustrated. Wladimirs jab and sense of distance was the reason for this. At the end of the tenth there was something wrong with one of Eddie Chambers gloves, and it had to be replaced, giving Chambers a much needed rest. The 11th round was more of the same from Wladimir, who was throwing less punches himself, but still clearly winning every round with his jab. Every round had to be scored to Wladimir because Chambers was fighting so defensive.
At the end of the 11th, Emanuel Stewart (Wladimirs head trainer) was not happy with Wladimir, telling him that he's not throwing enough punches, and that this fight should not be going to the scorecards. So in the 12th and final round Wladimir done something that we rarely see him do, get involved and start looking for the knock out!!! Wladimir was unloading with power punches, throwing one-twos, wide hooks with mean intentions. This was the last thing Chambers wanted as he had, by this stage, submitted himself to just going the distance. Chambers was also pretty tired at this point and on the back foot. As Chambers was moving backwards, after the pair were pulled apart by the referee, he ended up in the corner, where he was caught with a very accurrate lunging left hook to the face that seen him crumble instantly. That left hook knocked Chambers clean out, and he remained knocked out for a good 20-30 seconds. It looked as though Chambers was seriously hurt, but thankfully he was up on his feet after a few minutes.
Credit where credits due. You could see that Eddie Chambers tried his best, showing a lot of heart, even when he was getting hurt, he fought back. He came to fight. But it was nowhere near enough to de-thrown heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko.
Wladimir retains his titles and could now be lined up for a super fight against David Haye, that's if Haye can get past John Ruiz.
