Chamber’s Statement:

I’ve been a washed up disgrace for years. You could drive a truck through my two front teeth. I was beaten like a little girl in my last fight. Light Heavyweight, or Heavyweight, it’s the same. I am a waste of time.

Im glad he decided to keep going. His story has not ended. That fight would be tough for anyone and I would rate the other guy top 3 instead of 7. Eddie will come back strong. He’s a smart, talented, humble fighter. I’m pulling for his success.

He’s caught up in modest egomania. Stop talking, especially without a fight on the horizon and a loss in the rear view mirror. Fight. 4 times a year. A cruiser belt will likely come.

Chambers said “losing weight didnt bother him” …of course not but in cruiserweight you lose the speed advantage you have in haveyweight and if you are not a power puncher then get used to lose very often in that devision ….

Fight Scribe

Eddie I think your analysis of the fight is bias and patently wrong. You didn’t make the fight and the punch stats denote that. You were simply out hustled, out worked, out thought.

Tried his hardest to make ‘the fight’. That was not apparent. He was defensively minded and Mchunu was the more aggressive fighter while Chambers spent more time posturing and posing.

Eddie didn’ t have a chance in the world… Mchunu is just too slick for him.

Chambers made a mistake chasing Mchunu who is a very good counter puncher. He should have made it an ugly fight by trying to make Mchunu come to him instead… at least then he would have had a chance at a decision.

It isn’t the fact that Mchunu is any good, he just had Eddie’s number on a bad day for him. Too robotic and stiff, although he does have good timing. Just not enough tools to get to the top and stay there…

Pernell whitaker was 1 of if not maybe my favorite of all time and he was no ko artist but he fought he made you miss punches my an inch and he would knock you out if he needed to..Diobolys hurtado for instance..

I agree and I don’t mean every fight has to be a knockout or with no skills..All the guys I mentioned had skill in abundance but came to fight and yes hurt there opponent..Watching Byrd or chambers is like watching lacrosse..I’d rather pay or watch for free fighters who fight not shake there ass

Ridic….Boxing still needs tec. boxers…It’s not about k.o everyone you meet…It’s very much about overcoming your own weaknesses and exploiting your strenghts…Or else we could just change the rules so a fight could only end with a k.o…Which would just be braindead violence….I’m not the biggest fan of Chambers…But he’s always carried himself with dignity and respect for the sport….I don’t think he should retire….There’s still good fights out there for him …And unless his skill-set diminishes in the future, he can retire relatively healthy when that time comes…

Good slap boxer but who would pay to watch him?Boxing needs more haglers hearns holyfield s Dwight braxtons larry Holmes and less Chris birds and Eddie chambers…

Fight Aficionado

Mchunu was awkward as hell with his herky jerky style. Chambers looked terrible, didn’t know what to do. It was a poor fight and bad choice of opponent. Usually Chambers is the one throwing his opponents’ timing off so it was a dumbfounding bout all around. I still don’t know if Chamber’s is past his due date or if it was just a horrible matchup.

Usually a very short stubby 200-pounder is forced to attack a much taller man.

The amazing thing about Thabiso Mchunu is the way he outboxes competent taller boxers from long range, slips everything coming his way with masterful skill, and counters with such expert precision. He’s very powerful but he doesn’t try to knock you out. He just collects rounds. There’s never been another 200-pounder like him.

He was very lucky to get the Chambers fight … but it will be tough for him to get another top cruiserweight into the ring. Hopefully he has rich backers who are willing to put enough dollars on the table to draw interest from a top cruiserweight. It’s going to be tough. Often guys that good are religated to fighting a long string of 2nd raters, which does nothing to sharpen their game.

Give it a shot Eddie, hopefully it was a fluke…

Mr Gav

Fair play Eddie. The cruiser weight division could do with some more excitement hopefully Eddie can come back and get a fight with Huck though everyone knows Huck is king of gift decisions

I congratulate Eddie for making this statement and giving props to Mchunu. Make no excuses Eddie, he was the better man that night. Train harder and on to the next one. If that doesn’t work out, maybe it’s time to retire.

flash knock down

First let me say that I am a huge Fast Eddie Chambers fan in fact I thought he was the best heavy weight in the world at one time. This is what bad judging can do to a fighter. Eddie would not be in this situation if the judges had giving him the fight against Tomasz Adamek . Eddie fought that fight from the second round on with just one arm and he gave Adamek a boxing lesson. The chain of events from that night until now has put Eddie behind the eight ball so to speak. Eddie moves down to cruiser weight and runs into a guy who was twice as strong as he is and losses badly. I want to correct something Eddie said. It was Eddie who was fighting a defensive fight he would not engage the African. I have never seen Eddie fight this way. Fast Eddie is only 31 years old he has a lot of fights left in him . There is a big problem Eddie is about to run into he wont be faster than most of the cruiser weights and he wont be stronger than most of them . I really don’t like the move to cruiser weight for him . I do wish him well .

Win a title as a Cruiserweight, and come back to HW division.

Wish more fighters were this honest, and conducted themselves with this much class…

I notice that South African Danie Venter is scheduled to fight TBA for the vacant Commonwealth 200Lb title. Well Mchunu Koed Venter in 5 rounds last November, so how about mcunu’s management lobbying the CBC for a rematch & gift him the chance of another prestigious title?

Chambers is a nice guy and a class act. Where are the other U.S. cruisers anyway? Where are Kayode, and Tarver and Flores? Today, fighters reach a certain point, and then wait for their title shot. Chambers is willing; let’s see some action.

Fair enough from chambers. Good attitude which I wish more fighters would adopt. You were beaten by a better man on the night. Get up, dust yourself down and go again. That’s the mark of a champion. Good luck Eddie.

Off subject: Matchroom have just announced Carl Froch VS George Groves on November 23rd @ Manchester.
Back to Fast Eddie. He should come to the UK. I can’t see a single British Cruiserweight who could live with him. Tony Thompson obviously had a good time with David Price & got well payed & Eddie could do the same.

Fine words from the former world heavyweight title challanger Eddie Chambers. Good sportsmanship. Nice to hear that from a fighter then hearing them complaining there loss on “felt sick, had not preperd enough, hurt my toe etc”. I belive Chambers will make better fights.

I wish you well, Mr. Chambers.
