Heavyweight Eddie Chambers Has Surgery on Left Bicep

July 2, 2012

Heavyweight contender "Fast" Eddie Chambers underwent surgery today to repair an injury he suffered during his June 16th bout against Tomasz Adamek.

Chambers  revealed, "At the end of the first round I felt something rip. I remember thinking 'Hey, that didn't feel right.' It turns out I tore a tendon that connects my bicep to the bone. I am having surgery to repair that."

Chambers fought one-handed throughout the majority of the fight, but still looked good, often beating Adamek to the punch with right hand leads and then dancing out of trouble. He also went southpaw throughout the fight, using his right hand to jab Adamek and maintain distance.

Chambers put the "Fast" back into his game in that fight, as he came in at a reduced weight and proved to be very elusive. After a long layoff from the ring before the Adamek bout, Chambers will now be on the shelf again as he rehabs his arm.

Chambers is anxious to get back in the ring, "Once I have the surgery, I will do physical therapy for about  2 months. I will keep in shape physically.  You know running, and anything that doesn't require upper body, etc. Just to stay in shape and stay ready so that once I get back it's not going to take as long to get ready for fighting. I want to get back into a fight as soon as I possibly can after that."
