Eddie Chambers To Continue His Career at Cruiserweight

By “Fast” Eddie Chambers

PHILADELPHIA —This is an open letter to the fans who support me as well to those who don’t.

First off, I want to congratulate my opponent Thabiso Mchunu of South Africa for his victory against me.  I do not want to in any form or fashion diminish that win by making excuses about my performance in the ring.  I did my best that I could to make the fight.  To win the fight.  Losing this decision woke up my spirit to compete again and I will continue to pursue my career as a Cruiserweight.

I felt fine throughout the bout.  The weight loss was not a factor in my performance.  I did not expect Mchunu to fight such a defensive, awkward fight.  I was trying to follow instructions from my trainer, James Ali Bashir.  It was very difficult to do as I am a counter puncher as well who was forced into being the aggressor.  I felt that if I did not doing something to make the fight, there would have been no action during the fight.  I am not that kinda guy who is going to lay around crying over spilled milk.

I want to get right back in there the way the old-school warriors used to do many years ago.  I take full responsibility for this critical setback in my career.  My incentive is back and hopefully I will be able to meet Mchunu down the road and there will be a far a different result.

I look forward to meeting the top Cruiserweights in the world.  I think my biggest enemy is inactivity.  I have fought just three times in the last three years.  I want to get busy as soon as possible.  I will show the world that I am a long way from being done.

I don't think he can hang with Cruisers or Heavies. I think he's too accustomed to fat dudes that're plodding and easy for the pickens

Chambers needs to work on his fundamentals and get back to the drawing-board. Thats what every fighter does after a big loss.

Smart move in my opinion. Rack up a few more wins against guys that don't dwarf you.
