Brock is 6'2 , look how much taller he is than Chambers. He looks at least 3 inches taller in that photo. May be it is just a bad angle photo, but Chambers still looks chunky.

Chambers is like a tubby, little James Toney. I think Brock will take this fight and expose Chambers.

After recalling who Chambers is, I think Brock will decision him. And he'll do it by UD.

Brock doesn't look too bad, so maybe he added some muscle as well. But the added weight will affect his speed. Chambers UD

Brock is listed as 6'2 and Chambers as 6'1, but judging by the pic, either Eddie is slouching or he's trying to pinch an inch (or two) on us. And I agree-he does look a little thick in the photo.

Eddie is about 6' or 5'11". I am 5'11" and my brother is 6'1.5" and the height difference between my brother and I is about the same as Eddie and Calvin. As far as the weight I just don't see putting on 17 pounds as a good thing.

Chambers is chunky. If he was properly motivated, he could probably fight at LHW, only he'd still not have enough power there and his handspeed would only be on par with everyone else.

I'm glad Brock came in heavy, maybe it will throw off the betting lines. He'll still beat Chambers, who doesn't have particularly great stamina himself, and who is very flat-footed, and who has a reach disadvantage. All Chambers does is move his torso, jab and counter. Brock is just too well rounded for someone as one-dimensional as Chambers to school him, and Chambers doesn't even have a chance of KOing Brock.

Wow..240?


If weight is any indication, Brock doesn't want to see the end of this rainbow.

Calvance looks in great condition , plus neither man is badly conditioned , Chambers has a relaxed condition, never quite cut but excellently trained. Chambers speed is the key to victory.. Brocks jab is the key to his... If Chambers starts to boss the pace and stick the jab on Brock early and tee cominations off on him , its all downhill for Brock . Chambers will win, but not because of Cal's weight necesarrily..

Brock is not 6'2. He may be 6'1 in shoes. He is quite small when you see him face to face. He was in our gym a few weeks back. The owner of the gym, Joe Mayer is a legit 6'2 or 6'2.5. He was atleast 1.5 or 2'' taller than Calvin.

Chambers I think is over-rated, supposedly he is a speed fighter. Although, he doesnt seem that fast, just sits on the ropes and counter punches. Chambers seems nothing more than a poor version of Byrd.
Exactly. I'd be more worried about the flabby Chambers, who is really just an overweight cruiserweight. Brock looks in decent shape, and will likely dominate this fight, however much he weighs. Chambers does indeed strike me as a lesser version of Byrd. I've NEVER really understood what all the hype about this guy is!

Chambers looks a little short 5-11 or so (too small for a heavy) and has a beer belly that's no way to present yourself in front of Millions of people on Showtime..

Brock looks muscular and pumped at 240 i just hope he isn't on the juice
