Sources have revealed that IBF/WBO/Ring Heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko may not be excessively delighted about being ignored by American TV networks for his next world title defense against Eddie Chambers on March 20 in Dusseldorf, Germany. Word is that the champion has been putting on a power display which his sparring partners have not been able to thwart. In other words, there have been repeated knockdowns from a variety of punches.
Chambers, the top American heavyweight right now, has been talking a big game lately, insisting he will win the fight decisively. Klitschko has been criticized for recent flat performances against survival minded challengers and returns to the ring after a nine-month layoff. Over 50,000 are expected to attend Klitschko vs. Chambers live, which will exceed the live gate at Pacquiao-Clottey in Dallas.
Klitschko vs. Chambers will be available to be viewed in the U.S. for $15 at www.klitschko.com.
