Wladimir Klitschko vs Chambers is Next, Povetkin Later

By Rick Reeno was advised by several sources that Wladimir Klitschko is going to make his WBO mandatory defense against Eddie Chambers next.

Klitschko has two mandatories due. Most had anticipated that a title defense against IBF mandatory Alexander Povetkin would come first.

While the exact reason for the switch wasn't disclosed, one source told me there was more pressure on Klitschko to meet the obligation to Chambers because the WBO gave a shorter deadline to complete their mandatory.
Chambers upset previously unbeaten Alexander Dimitrenko to earn the shot. Povetkin is going to take another fight before a Klitschko meeting. BoxingScene has heard the date of December 12 being thrown around for Klitschko-Chambers.

I hope Eddie wins, he seems hungry for it. Wlad is no Dimitrenko, however, he needs to be careful.

Povetkin must be gettin and enjoying that step aside money!! This dude been no#1 contender over a year now and dont even complain when he's steped aside. Went thru tournaments ans everything!!

[QUOTE=ReppinDubK;5868205]Chambers will get battered the entire fight until Wlad feels like its time for him to take a nap.[/QUOTE] Funny, but correct.

[QUOTE=kayjay;5873572]Chambers will fall apart mentally in the first minute, after which Wlad can drag the fight out as long as he wants. My prediction for landed punches: Wlad 75, Chambers 2[/QUOTE] I am afraid Eddie is one of these guys…
