Exclusive: Eddie Chambers discusses Fury v Klitschko II, Hughie title certainty, AJ v Martin

Chris Glover 17/02/2016

Eddie Chambers is eagerly anticipating returning to the ring in the coming months.

The American, who has shared a ring with former WBA, WBO, IBF, IBO and Ring Magazine World Champion Wladimir Klitschko, has been one of the most avoided fighters in the heavyweight division in recent years.

Chambers linked up with the Fury camp in 2013 and has won his last six contests inside the scheduled distance. The Philadelphia native has weighed in on the Joshua vs Martin debate and shared his views on Peter, Tyson and Hughie Fury.

“Peter has been a major help to me. We still speak all the time and he advises me a lot. I’m back in the US but hopefully I’ll return to the UK if I get a big fight. I have no news yet but I should know something in the next couple of weeks. I’m hoping it’s a marquee name and I would love to train back at the Fury camp for it.”

Tyson Fury seemingly shocked many people in the latter part of 2015, becoming the first man in a decade to hand Wladimir Klitschko a loss. Chambers spent a lot of time with the Fury camp; so in theory has a more accurate opinion on the Fury camp than the vast majority of those outside it and weighed in on the potential rematch between Fury and Klitschko as well his take on the potential of Hughie Fury,

“Tyson will be more confident going into the rematch with Klitschko. He’s beaten him once so I would expect him to win in more confident fashion in the second fight. I think Tyson will win on points but you never know he could stop Klitschko but I doubt it. Tyson won’t take unnecessary chances.”

“Hughie will be the Heavyweight Champion of the World one day. You can see how good both Hughie and Tyson are by being around them every day. I never had any doubt that Tyson would be World Champion and so will Hughie.”

The big news in the last week was that Anthony Joshua will take a seemingly big step up to challenge Charles Martin for the IBF World Heavyweight Title. The fight is interesting as it showcases two fighters that have not really had much of a career at world level as pros. Boxing’s original Fast Eddie gave his take on Martin vs Joshua.

“It’s a more interesting fight that people think, it’s a big step up for Joshua to World level. Martin could cause Joshua problems. I want to see both young fighters showing top skills as that’s what they should show if they want to be heavyweight champion’s. It will be an interesting fight.”

Keep an eye out for upcoming announcements from the Chambers camp on his next fight.
