BoxingScene.com 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.
