Jean-Marc Mormeck: If Wlodarczyk Wins, I Will Retire
By Luke Furman
Former champion Jean-Marc Mormeck (36-5, 22KOs) is putting his career on line when he faces WBC cruiserweight king Krzysztof Wlodarczyk (47-2-1, 33KOs) on the 9th of February in Equatorial Guinea.
Mormeck, 40-years-old, has been away from the ring since heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko destroyed him in four rounds last March. Mormeck has not fought at cruiserweight since 2007.
"If I lose, I'll stop fighting. If I win, I will inevitably have to come back and do another fight. While I'm not ranked at number one in that division, I'm being given the opportunity because I have a name. If I win the title, I will not go away like a thief. If I win, I will not sit on the title. However, one thing is certain - I will stop fighting in 2013," said Mormeck.

Mormeck heading 4 retirement, hopefully w/some $$....this small country, ironically was featured in the travel sectin of NY TImes recently on trying 2 build their tourism up, but this osn't how 2 do it...ridicously low seat prices, but it's what…Comment by southpaw_07 on 01-02-2013
not a good payday for Mormeck. Did anyone take a notice of the country hosting the fight? Equatorial Guinea..lol..total population of the whole country is 700k...ringside tickets for $10 and cheapest for $3.... who came up with this smart idea?Comment by flem1 on 01-02-2013
I give Mormeck a chance to win until rd 7. He usually runs out of gas beyond that.Comment by Hitman932 on 01-02-2013
This is a good fight for bettors. Hopefully get good odds on the Pole because Mormeck is as washed up as they get.Comment by Enzo Mc is SHIT on 01-02-2013
Mormeck seems like a decent guy. I hope he loses a decision, doesn't get hurt and takes a good amount of money into his retirement.Post a Comment/View More User Comments (5)
