had a knacki at handing out to defeats to unbeaten fighters, out of his
nineteen victories, six of those opponents stepped in with Chilemba with
an unblemished record to only walk away with the first L of their
careers. And come September 29th, the African born boxer plans on
handing down another loss as he takes on the Hungarian born unblemished
one, Zsolt Erdei 33-0 (18).
In this exclusive interview, Chilemba talks
about his victory over Edison Miranda, his upcoming match-up against
Erdei, and more. Enjoy!
Benny Henderson Jr.:
You are scheduled to fight former champion Zsolt Erdei, it would appear
that this bout is going to be a tough one, your thoughts on the
Yes, I do not expect it to be easy. I want to get to the top and nothing
worth achieving is ever easy, that does not however mean that it is not
possible. I just have to work hard be disciplined and determined..
You do have a knack for handing fighters their first loss of their
careers, six in total that you have put a blemish on their records. What
are your keys to victory in beating Erdei, and derailing his victory
IC: I have been called the record breaker. My key is to do what I always do,
I adapt to my opponent, use it to my advantage and do whatever is
necessary to win.
You have went back and forth between super middleweight and light
heavyweight, all though it has been two years since you have fought at
the 168-pound limit, do you see yourself dropping back down again, or
staying in the division you are in now?
IC: I am very comfortable in light heavy and happy to stay here, although if
opportunities present themselves that are too good to pass up we will
have to decide at the time.
You had a good showing against all around tough guy Edison Miranda, besides that fight, what other fights are you most proud of?
IC: I am proud of all my fights as each one has taught me something new about myself, especially the one I lost.
BH: What do you feel are your greatest assets as a boxer?
My belief in my abilities and my dreams.
I know you are not looking past Erdei, but the light heavyweight
division has some big names in the division. If victorious, who would
you like to step in the ring with next?
I want to prove myself as a world class boxer so I want the champions holding the top belts and ring magazine.
Any message you would like to send out to Zsolt Erdei before the fight?
Thank you for giving me the opportunity. I am coming to do the business.
Anything in closing?
IC: I would like to thank my team, my manager, Jodi Solomon, co-manager
Damian Ramirez, my trainer Alan Toweel, Dibella promotions and HBO for
all believing in me, fighting for me and giving me the opportunity to
prove myself and of course boxing fans all over the world. I would also
like to thank God without whom none of this would be possible..
