Eddie started boxing professionally in 2000 at the age of 18. He had a long and successful career fighting some of the best fighters in the world.
In May 2007, Chambers stopped 15–0 Derric Rossy and defeated Dominic Guinn on Shobox. Later in 2007 he took part in IBF's 4-man elimination tournament to face the current champion Wladimir Klitschko. Chambers beat Calvin Brock via split decision in semifinals, but lost unanimously to Alexander Povetkin in the final bout.
After his fight with Povetkin he won three more bouts, including one against Raphael Butler, before facing Samuel Peter on March 27, 2009 and defeated him by majority decision. He scored another decision win afterwards against Alexander Dimitrenko on July 4, 2009 in a WBO title eliminator bout, which made him the mandatory challenger for the WBO heavyweight title held by Wladimir Klitschko.
Chambers vs. Klitschko
On March 20, 2010 he faced Wladimir Klitschko for his first ever title shot in Düsseldorf, Germany. Klitschko defeated Chambers by knockout five seconds before the end of the final round. The Ukrainian was criticized between rounds by his trainer Emanuel Steward for not fighting aggressively enough despite having won all prior rounds and Chambers offering only weak resistance. Klitschko picked up his pace during the final round and eventually connected with a left hook hitting Chambers and knocking him out.
After beating Derric Rossy in an IBF title eliminator, Chambers faced former Light heavyweight and Cruiserweight champion Tomasz Adamek for the vacant IBF North American Heavyweight title. Adamek won the fight by unanimous decision in a relatively close fight, though judge Alan Rubenstein controversially scored it 119-109 in favour of Adamek. Chambers then moved down to Cruiserweight for a fight with South African contender Thabiso Mchunu. Following the rapid weight loss, Chambers gave a relatively poor showing and was outboxed by his South African foe over ten rounds.
From 2013 to 2015, Chambers was based in the United Kingdom. He was trained by Peter Fury, who was then-trainer of unified heavyweight champion Tyson Fury, and heavyweight contender Hughie Fury. Chambers then signed with manager Al Haymon and made his U.S. return in late 2015.
Chambers appeared in the 2006 video game Fight Night Round 4, as well as Fight Night Champion. He also commentated for the UK boxing TV channel BoxNation, and makes occasional appearances as a panelist on the BoxHard Podcast.
