In the wake of Cristobal Arreola’s withdrawl from the March 9th HBO card, Eddie Chambers (36-3, 18 KO’s) has offered to step up to fight Bermane Stiverne (22-1-1, 20 KO’s).
Chambers has been in the gym and says he is ready to take Stiverne on.
"I am always in the gym. I was training anyway,” Chambers said,. “It would be very easy for me to take the March 9th fight against Stiverne. I think this is a great opportunity, just too good to pass up."
"Eddie is a throwback, old-time fighter. He is always ready to go. As soon as he heard Arreola backed out of the fight Eddie called me to say he wanted to step in to fight Stiverne. We would be happy to make this fight." said Chambers promoter, Kathy Duva.
