Chambers: Haye Should Fight Me, Winner Gets Klitschko

Philadelphia, PA- Philadelphia IBF #1 heavyweight contender, Eddie Chambers, scored an impressive 12-round victory in an IBF title elimination over Derric Rossy of Medford, New York, in a SHOWTIME televised bout from Bally's in Atlantic City. It was the second win for Chambers over Rossy who was riding a seven-fight winning streak.

Chambers rose to 36-2, with 18 knockouts, in a convincing rebound from his loss to WBO, IBO and IBF World Champion Wladimir Klitschko (55-3, 49 KOs) of the Ukraine.

We caught up with #4 IBF ranked "Fast" Eddie Chambers today and here is what he had to say:

Who would you like to have as your next opponent?

"I'll fight anyone where there is a ring a referee it can be on the moon bring it on lets stop talking and start fighting".  My history shows that I will get in the ring and put myself to the test against the best.  I have fought (Alexander) Povetkin, (Alexander) Dimitrenko, (Wladimir) Klitschko and (Samuel) Peter.

Is there anyone in particular that you would like to battle?

"David Haye."  I believe it would be a great way for the winner to then earn the right to fight Klitschko.  Haye is the one I would love to get inside the ring now!  

Is this fight in the works?

Who knows how and when it will happen.  These fighters are scared and don't want to fight anybody.   Haye has had his moment of fame but he hasn't done the work. Haye is doing more talking then fighting.  It's a bunch of Haye!

Why do you think he has not called you out?

I can only assume that he doesn't want a real fight.  It's an embarrassment to the fighter.    I have to assume that since he said that he will take on anyone and doesn't do it, the truth comes out by calling out the "right guys" and staying away from someone like me?

Haye wants money and fame but doesn't want to fight.

So you feel that you are the one heavyweight fighter that can take over the reigns?

My trainer (Rob Murray, Sr.) calls it like he sees it.  He's an honest man.  He describes me as a throwback fighter because he knows that I will fight anybody, anywhere.  I have traveled far for my fights and I have battled in my own back yard.  I have that old school mentality.  I am true to my craft.  A fight is a fight.  It's my job, that's what I do.  I'm not going to be picky and choosey about locations or fighters.  Give me the fight and leave the rest up to me and my team.
