Eddie Chambers Tabs Baker; Odlanier Solis Falls Through

By Mike Coppinger

Eddie Chambers, back on the heavyweight comeback trail, has an opponent for his next bout.

"Fast" Eddie will face British journeyman Carl Baker, he announced on his verified Twitter account Wednesday.

Chambers said that he was trying to lock down a bout with fellow heavyweight contender Odlainer Solis, but the Cuban rejected the bout, according to Chambers.

"We offer Solis team and plenty more but they price themselves out," Chambers tweeted. "Salute to Carl Baker for taking it! Fight on!"

Baker (10-7, 3 KOs) is best known for being kissed by Dereck Chisora before their Feb. 2010 bout. Baker has lost three of his last four bouts.

Chambers (38-4, 20 KOs) is now based out of the U.K., where he trains under the tutelage of Peter Fury.

Chambers needs to stop messing around fighting these bums & get a proper contender in the ring.

I think Solis is kind of a head case. Shame. He should be one of the best contenders in the world.
