Chambers vs Thompson Heads a ShoBox Tripleheader

LOS ANGELES - Eddie Chambers, the IBF #1 Heavyweight World Contender and Tony Thompson, the IBF #2 Heavyweight World Contender, will fight in an IBF Heavyweight Title Elimination bout on Friday, October 28 at Bally's Atlantic City with the winner placing himself in a mandatory bout against the reigning IBF, WBO and WBA Heavyweight World Champion Wladimir Klitschko.  Wladimir's brother, Vitali, holds the WBC portion of the World Heavyweight Championship.

The SHOWTIME "ShoBox" event will also feature 2008 US Olympian Javier Molina (9-0, 4 KOs) against his toughest challenge to date, Artemio Reyes (13-1, 11 KOs) in an 8-round Super Welterweight bout. The undefeated Molina is coming off of a unanimous decision victory over John Revish.

In the other televised bout, Goossen Tutor's newly signed undefeated Middleweight Brandon "Flawless" Gonzales will fight in an 8-round bout. The highly touted Golden Gloves Champion from Sacramento has finished ten of his fourteen opponents by way of knockout. "This is an exciting time in my professional career.  I've worked real hard since turning pro and now signing with manager James Prince and Antonio Leonard and Goossen Tutor Promotions, I feel confident moving forward with them handling my business," Gonzales said.

"With Virgil Hunter training me now, and the management experience of James and the promotional skills that Dan (Goossen) brings to his fighters, I feel ready to move much quicker to my goal in becoming a world champion and a future name in the sport."

All three bouts will be broadcast on Showtime's "ShoBox" series.

a nice matchup between 2 B level fighters -- the fact it it is creating something of a 'stir' is yet another sign of the pathetic state of the HW division these days....

Thompson and Chambers are real fighters, unlike the sorry European *****es that are scared of tough fights and traveling overseas. The only reason they're fighting each other is cause none of the Euros like Helenius, Dimitrenko or Boytsov have the…
