Jean-Marc Mormeck Snags TKO Win in Comeback

Frenchman Jean-Marc Mormeck, the two-time former WBC and WBA cruiserweight champion, made a successful return to the ring on Thursday, the referee stopping the fight against Hungary's Tamas Lodi in the fourth round.

Mormeck has not fought since losing out in the fourth round to Wladimir Klitschko in a WBO-IBF-WBA heavyweight title fight in March 2012 in Duesseldorf, Germany.

But after 27 months on the sidelines and at the age of 42, Mormeck made no mistake in his cruiserweight bout in a skating rink in Asnieres near Paris.

Mormeck knocked Lodi down in the fourth for an eight count, the referee stepping in to stop the bout moments later.

True to his previous ring form, Mormeck continually advanced on his opponent, making solid facial contact in the second round before setting about the Hungarian's body.

An avalanche of punches opened the third round with Lodi in obvious trouble, before the denouement a round later.

The victory allows Mormeck to dream of competing in another world championship fight before the year's end, as he previously stated he wished to do.

Mormeck, from Guadeloupe, won the WBA cruiserweight titles in 2002 and 2005 and the WBA-WBC crowns in 2005 and 2007.

Good win for Mormeck. He said after the fight that he is going to fight a cruiserweight champ, but he didn't tell who.
