Klitschko Defends Selection of Mormeck: He's Not Easy

by Ruslan Chikov

IBF/IBO/WBO/WBA heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko (56-3, 49KOs) is defending the opponent selection for his next scheduled fight. On December 10th before at the ESPRIT Arena in Düsseldorf, Germany, Klitschko will defend his titles against former cruiserweight king Jean Marc Mormeck (36-4, 22KOs). Klitschko is not going to underestimate Mormeck and considers him a very dangerous opponent.

"Mormeck is one of the most experienced opponents that I've ever had. During his career he won many championship fights, he is technically strong, has excellent boxing skills and he's a very intelligent fighter. To underestimate him would be fatal," Klitschko said.

[QUOTE=Pirao;11258968]What about Helenius?[/QUOTE] He's with Sauerland, they'll wait until the Klitschkos are retired. The fight against Mormeck is just a stay busy fight. Mormeck has in no way deserved the fight, but there aren't any worthy opponents left. At least…
