8/3 NBCSN Fight Night: Stevens vs Roman,Chambers vs Mchunu and Adamek vs TBA

PhilBoxing.com


August 3rd Mohegan Sun NBC Sports Network Fight Night

Curtis Stevens vs. Saul Roman Eddie Chambers vs. Thabiso Mchunu Tomasz Adamek vs. TBA


Curtis "Showtime" Stevens and "Fast" Eddie Chambers have launched a campaign to dominate their weight divisions. By this time next year, each has plans to become the "Man to Beat" at in his respective class. On August 3rd NBC Sports Network will feature these two warriors in highly competitive bouts on their Fight Night series. Tomasz "Goral" Adamek has also been added to the card. He opponent will be announced next week. The telecast will begin at 10:30 PM EDT.

Stevens and Chambers are doing something unusual in the sport of boxing as of late: Coming down in weight. Both have fought in divisions where they were always the small guy. Now, each has chosen to move down into weight classes where they will be the big dog in the ring.

At the start of his career, Stevens, 24-3, 17 KO's, a former amateur standout, was one of the hardest punchers in the super middleweight division. At middleweight, he plans to dominate a weight class where he may be the hardest puncher of all. On a campaign to become the middleweight champion in 2014, Stevens knows he needs to be matched in dangerous fights to get ready to take on the big names at 160.

And so enters his next opponent: Saul Roman, 37-9, 31 KO's of Tijuana, Mexico. Roman is coming off three straight wins. He has big punching power. NBC Sports Network alumni, Gabriel Rosado can attest to that. Roman lost a split decision to Rosado which many people questioned. Roman is very active and highly competitive, he accepted the fight within 24 hours of the offer.

The former USBA Heavyweight Champion, Chambers may already be the best cruiserweight in the world. A small heavyweight who always punched above his weight, Chambers will begin to demonstrate that in in his first fight at the cruiserweight limit on August 3rd. A big puncher who specifically asked to come to the US to take on Chambers, his opponent, Thabiso "The Rock" Mchunu, 12-1, 9 KO's, of South Africa, is a serious threat in this 10-round match. The muscular 24-year old southpaw is also world class trash talker who has already taken to Twitter to call out the former #1 heavyweight contender.

"Mchunu is going to make this a very interesting fight. But I do not believe that there is a cruiserweight in the world who can beat Eddie Chambers," promoter Kathy Duva of Main Events, said. "It is to Eddie's advantage that, with so much world class experience, he is still only 31 years old. He has been fighting people who are twice his size for many years and beating them with his speed and smarts. At Cruiserweight he will still be the fastest man in the ring and, perhaps, the biggest puncher.

"By early next year both Stevens and Chambers should be in title fights," Duva added.

Last seen on NBC Sports Network in December, Adamek 48-2, 29 KO's, returns rested and ready to, once again, entertain his legion of fans. His opponent will be named shortly.
