Boswell's Manager: Klitschko-Moremeck is a Mortal Sin

by Ruslan Chikov

American manager Harry Barnett, who works with 42-year heavyweight Cedric Boswell, can't believe former cruiserweight champion Jean Marc Mormreck will challenge WBO/IBO/WBA/IBf champion Wladimir Klitschko in a few weeks. Barnett expects Klitschko to put a real beating on Mormeck. Meanwhile, Barnett's fighter will finally get his shot at a title when he challenges undefeated WBA "regular" champion Alexander Povetkin on Saturday in Helsinki, Finland.

"Cedric should have had a title fight a lot earlier. However, the so-called boxing politics are a terrible thing. Promoters, they always pick easy opponents, and that's what Cedric is not. [Klitschko-Mormeck] is not boxing, it's a mortal sin. They produce a faded boxer from a lower weight division against a talented fighter like Klitschko. This kind of fight is not worth watching.....even on TV," Barnett said to Alexander Pavlov.

Boswell's a bum, poor clubfighter. hes even an unworthy, riskfree opponent for that fraudulant ducker disgrace Povetkin. his style is a complete failjob for someone of his size, defense **** offense barely existent, Valuev-like handspeed no power and little punch…

[COLOR="Navy"]"Mortal sin" is a very colorful description. In essence though he is exactly right, this is a crap fight.[/COLOR]

I agree that Klitschko is going to beat the crap out of Mormeck, however he shouldn't be talking so much about faded boxers since he's managing a 42 year old heavyweight boxer...
