Heavyweight contender Eddie Chambers (36-3, 18KOs) is ready to move down in weight and challenge WBA cruiserweight king Denis Lebedev (25-1, 19KOs). After his most recent victory, Lebedev and his manager, Vladimir Hyrunov, called for a fight with Chambers at Madison Square Garden in New York.

Chambers, who weighed 202-pounds [two pounds above cruiser limit], lost a close decision to Tomasz Adamek in June. Chambers has recently discussed the possibility of going down to fight at cruiserweight.

"Sometimes you find yourself in a situation where you want to take chances, and do it with faith in yourself. I hope to have enough time to prepare, as Lebedev is difficult guy. He threw a challenge to me and I'm willing to take it. Hopefully this fight will take place in the near future. I want to come into this fight at 100%. The main thing is not getting injured again during training camp," Chambers said.

"Lebedev is very good. He always waits for the ideal opportunity to land a decisive punch. He is also very athletic guy, quick and savvy. I think his main advantage is his dimensions: they are comparable to mine."

Prediction: Eddie Chambers wins 9 of 12 rounds clearly but loses by a wide margin on the cards. Tunney posts his agreement with the judges scoring within 5 minutes after the cards are read.

Good choice for both guys, & a great matchup. Lebedev will probably never get Jones in the ring, who just doesn't seem to want to fight, & Huck is obviously not keen on a rematch after the controversial split to Lebedev the last time. This is likely the best money fight out there for him, & a wi...

[QUOTE=joe strong]chambers has beat some good HWs & had fights with several HWs much bigger then himself & he did well. i'd stay at HW if i was him.[/QUOTE] But wouldn't Chambers be able to earn a bigger pay check being king at cruiser, than being a HW journeyman?
