Chambers vs Rossy: Training Camp Notes For Fast Eddie

Atlantic City, NJ - This Friday, #4 IBF ranked heavyweight contender "Fast" Eddie Chambers (35-2, 18 KOs) will take on the #11 heavyweight contender Derric Rossy (25-2, 14 KO's) in an IBF Title Elimination bout on the undercard of the SHOWTIME ShoBox: The New Generation broadcast taking place at the world-famous Bally's Atlantic City.

Rossy will look to avenge the February 2007 match against Chambers when he was stopped in the 7th after a back and forth battle for six rounds. Chambers realizes Rossy had only 15 bouts in their first meeting and he has improved dramatically, now possessing a seven-fight win streak.   

EDDIE CHAMBERS CAMP NOTES

On Training:  "I have had world class sparring with Steve Cunningham, Chazz Witherspoon and Yusaf Mack.  Its good work and we help each other in the process.  There are a lot of top fighters at Shular's Gym"

Recovering from the Klitschko Loss:  "I had a long talk with Emanuel Steward and he told me after a loss like I had against Wladimir that I should get away from the sport for a few months and let my body regenerate.  I kept my body in shape by being in the fitness gym and I slowly migrated back to the boxing gym and by the end of 2010 I felt I was ready to get back in the ring and this is a great opportunity for many reasons, most of being that it's a fight that will put me at the front of the championship pecking order"

"I been training and focused for this fight.  I have put the Klitschko fight behind me long ago and am looking forward to getting back in the mix for the title"

The first fight with Rossy:  "The first fight doesn't mean anything.  That was a few years ago.  He is a different and improved fighter.  I have to have the mindset that I have never fought him before.  I have seen him on ESPN and he looks much improved.

"Along the same lines I did have a decisive victory over him and I am sure that has been on his mind.  Yes he has improved he probably will have a different game plan but that won't work either."

On the IBF Elimination bout:  I am grateful that the IBF kept me in this position to where I am able to have this significant fight which will be the first step back into regaining my number-one spot so I can fight for the title yet once again.

Final Thoughts:  "On Friday night the fans will see what they have always seen and that's hard working Heavyweight contender with a lot of skill and a game plan specifically for an improved Derric Rossy.  He may be improved the game maybe different but the outcome will be the same.
