On to Dusseldorf for fight ... and shopping?

Fight week for Saturday's Wladimir Klitschko-Eddie Chambers title bout has been pretty friendly to the Dusseldorf Chamber of Commerce ... if there is one.

Monday's news conference was at a hot local nightclub called Ufer 8.

In an open workout Wednesday, the fighters shadowboxed -- separately -- at a Mercedes dealership. And the weigh-in Friday afternoon is at a downtown department store called Karstadt. I'll arrive at Flughafen Dusseldorf International (got to love that word for airport) Friday morning after a red-eye Lufthansa flight, just in time to see how much the big guys weigh, and maybe shop for some linens.

I'll post updates here Friday, then on Saturday it'll be live reports from Esprit Arena. Yep, that's Esprit, the casual clothing company.
